Here is my problem: In sharepoint menu, headings are unclickable on one of the sites. When i checked site code, it seems that the working sites have href in given menu item, in problematic site they have not. On site load, heading is clickable for a short time, and then href dissapears. My assumption is that some javascript fuction is the problem here. The question is: how can I find it among so many scripts? What should i look for?

You could check if there are any specific webparts that could contain any scripts.

Add ?Contents=1 (http://example.com?contents=1 or http://example.com/sites/example?contents=1) to the end of your site url to see all the webpart that exists on the page that has the problem. If you find any Content Editor Web Part or Script Editor Web Part, those could contain the scripts that slows down the page load.

Edit the site if you find any of the webparts mentioned above. If this problem only exists for a single site then it should not be scripts added to the masterpage.

Or you could use the F12 developer tools to see if you can find anything.

  • I've checked webparts, it's not it. I'm troubleshooting it in developer tools, trying to find something. The problem exists for all pages in a given site.

  • You should be able to use F12 and then select "Network" and then reload the site to see how long all the scripts on the site takes to load. Aug 22, 2017 at 13:11
  • Are you using a custom masterpage? Aug 22, 2017 at 13:18
  • the problem is not with the long load time, but with the dissapearing href from heading in menu, therefore making it unclickable

  • @Wolwgang Did you found it? Aug 29, 2017 at 12:15

Just click on F12 from chrome or IE and look for errors in console tab. From there you can start troubleshooting!
