I'm sorry I didn't know how to title this better, but here's the deal. I just upgraded today to 2.8 via the admin panel.
It appeared to be just fine until I tried to edit some posts (wp-admin/edit.php)-- it just hangs on a blank page.
It turns out that most of the options in the sidebar do the same thing.
Although oddly enough I'm glad at this point that I'm not entirely shutout of the admin panel at least. And some (very few) actions do still work as they should (add new post, tools)
While maybe it's not a total disaster- like I said there are a few things that work, and the blog looks normal from the outside-- it's basically impossible to use as well.
What are my options at this point? I'm ashamed to say I didn't make a back-up (upgrades have always been easy and successful)
Can I 'manually install'? I saw that in another thread. How do I do that on top of that auto install (which claimed it was successful)
Thanks so much
