I cannot add web parts to a web part page. If I click "Add web part" in a web part zone, there is a javascript error: Type mismatch, row 2, char. 13993, URI: http://portalsite/_layouts/wpadder.js?rev=hnGJJEMcU5XH%2BCq7PlSxJw%3D%3D Is this a known bug? I tried more installations - no luck. Thanks :) Ravie.

Ravie, I have seen this kind of behavior before, it is usually a result of another javascript error. In other words something else on the page is causing a javascript error which is preventing the SharePoint javascript from running properly.

Try using Firefox or Chrome to edit the page they tend to be more tolerant javascript errors
