[resolved] 3.1 Excerpt, Custom Fields, Author settings in Post missing on SOME themes (6 posts)

    I just upgraded several of my websites that are running wordpress to WordPress 3.1. Now when I go to create new Post or Edit an old Post, several Post settings have disappeared on most of these websites but not all of them. I am running different themes for different websites. For example I am running the News theme by DevPress on one website. I do not see any problems in the post settings on that website. On another website I am running the wpFolio by wpfeed.com. When adding or editing a Post on the site, the Post Settings, Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Customer Fields, Discussion, and Author sections are missing below the Post content area. There are several other websites that I am operating that are also having this problem.

    From the site: visit Screen Options in the top right to get old panels back

    That was a bad move as it is going to create a spike in support calls. What were they thinking? Show the great new features by whacking everyone's systems?

    Thanks for pointing out the issue @rikmulder . At least I found this quickly and not because a client was calling me.

    I'm using a WooTheme (Gazette), and their fields were visible, but nothing else.

    This worked for me, as well, so I could finally see my custom fields again...

    Thanks!
