[resolved] Admin Panel Issue: Can't get past LogIn (20 posts)

    I have just uploaded all the files to upgrade to WordPress 2.5. My blog works (as far as the non-admin front end). But when I go to log into my admin panel I get this error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: wp_register_sidebar_widget() in /mnt/gs01/herd04/37124/domains/mydomain.com/html/wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php on line 31

    I have made the attempt to try a few suggestions that have been posted about this same issue so far to no success.

    I have updated my database, and I have deleted the wp-admin folder and cleanly uploaded the updated version, still no joy. I can go this weekend without being able to log in, but I would like to be able to ASAP.

    that fucntion is defined inside a file that lives inside wp-includes/, namely widgets.php.

    I suggest doing the same for your wp-includes/ directory that you did for the wp-admin/ one.

    Delete everything, or just that file, and upload fresh copies of files.

    I have deleted the directories in question and uploaded fresh copies several times with no success.

    What I have been able to do though is log into the admin panel successfully with a work around. I type in http://mydomain.com/wp-admin/edit.php and after it has me enter my login information it takes me directly past the DASHBOARD.

    This leads me to believe the dashboard file is having some issues. So I will continue to trouble shoot this so I can go about things the way they are supposed to work, not a work around.

    If anyone else finds an answer please let me/the rest of us know.

    Thanks!

    thanks for the workaround. I'm working on the issue as well...but my knowledge is VERY limited.

    I'd love to keep working on this, but since it is semi working, I have to head out! I'm actually heading out to dinner with the girl friend and her parents... 60 miles south of here. So I won't be able to get back to this until later tonight. Hopefully someone will have found an actual fix by the time I return later to night. If not, I'll see what I can do...

    Good Luck!

    If you have an index.php inside wp-content/plugins/ delete it. Use an index.html instead. See if that fixes it.

    I had a plugin that deactivated WP widgets (for some reason...can't remember why - I think to use K2 widgets).

    Deactivated that plugin and all is fine now.

    Even after I get in through the workaround (see ersnyder's workaround above) I STILL can't get to the dashboard page. Get this message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: wp_register_sidebar_widget() in /home/zakwhite/public_html/wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php on line 31

    Ideas?

    Some more diagnosis information...I usually use the theme K2. Get this error when using k2:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: wp_register_sidebar_widget() in /home/zakwhite/public_html/wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php on line 31

    When I switch to any other theme, the problem disappears.

    So, is it an issue with K2? Those of you out there who are having this same problem, what template are you using?

    Ok, I GOT IT FIXED! I downloaded this newest build of K2:

    http://kaytwo.googlecode.com/files/K...didate%205.zip

    And installed it. Now, everything works perfectly!

    Just got back into town. Nice to see that there seems to be head way on this issue. I'm a bit tired from the drive and would rather not go digging into my sites code in my groggy state. I'll try out what cadillaczak has posted in the morning.

    I am using the K2 theme myself... (sorry, guess that would have been helpful in the begining). Since the error codes didn't seem to be calling on files in the theme folder, it would have been the last place I would have looked. Sad thing is, I am already using the latest RC4 K2 build.

    Real quick, I have switched to the basic Kubrik theme to test this theory and all the errors went away, so IT IS THE K2 THEME. Damnit.

    I'll post my final findings tomorrow and hopefully we can close this thread as resolved.

    Problem appearently solved with the K2 205 update. However, it appears that this is not published at K2-site.

    Update can be downloaded at
    http://kaytwo.googlecode.com/files/K2%20Release%20Candidate%205.zip

    I see that a few bugs are still present - editing the side-bar has got some strange issues with columnt-with, but I haven't looked into it yet.

    I agree, the issue is fixed in K2 RC5. Though the issues that came with the RC5 build were more than I was willing to put up with. So I am going to attempt to fix the RC4 build and the connection to the dashboard.

    Since we know what the cause of the issue is, the K2 theme, I will mark this thread resolved being that the problem is more a theme and not WordPress 2.5.

    Well, I gave K2 RC5 another go after looking through the code changes they made. I decided I liked what I saw and focused about 15 minutes at getting K2 RC5 the way I liked it rather than getting K2 RC4 to function properly.

    I really like how K2 RC5 handles the style sheets.

    I'm up and running and will continue to tweak...

    - All WordPress 2.5 Modules are up and working correctly.
    - All K2 RC5 Modules are working, SANS the above mentioned K2 Side Bar Manager that has some alignment issues.

    Thanks to everyone for your help and input.
