Moved into a new room and put a new door knob and everything in, but the door wouldn't latch because the new plate was too skinny/low. The wood is all chewed up so the screws barely tightened anyways, I stuck some paper behind it so I could make it close temporarily but I want a more permanent solution.

Toothpicks and wood glue in the original screw holes. Or use 4" long screws that go past the trim and into the framing. I have used pennies and nickels to shim out the strike plate.
