Please help--since upgrading I have no way of managing my page orders, parents, and sub pages, among all the other advanced page management options.
I've been up all night searching google, codex, and these forums, but can't seem to find anyone else who had the same problem i'm having, so I've finally decided to post my first inquiry here.
I was originally using 2.3.3 for the longest (i think that's what it was)for Thailand-USA site and finally decided to go through with the upgrade to 2.5. Did it all by the instructions, backing everything up, setting permissions, etc. and it all seemed to work just fine, that is until I get to to the write/edit pages panel of 2.5, where none of the Advanced options are available like they used to be in the older version (i.e. page slug, page template, and most importantly for me, page parent and order)
The only extra option on my write and edit pages panel, at the bottom is for the All in One SEO plugin options. On the right is just the save, delete, and publish options. No advanced options to be found.
I know for a fact that that 2.5 should have all the advanced goodies, as I'm using it on another blog on the same server that has no problems. So it seems something must have gone wrong with the upgrade. I'm so reluctant to go with a restore and retry method as I've already spent ages getting it upgraded as is on top of all the hours i spent trying to integrate it with a bbpress forum in a sub directory. So if I'm lucky, perhaps there is a quick fix.
Please, someone point me in the right direction of what the problem is. Surely I can't be the only one who has had this problem. Even the pagemash plugin won't let me change around my parents/subpages like it should, so somehow my page ids are locked and inaccessible for some reason...
Any guesses, expertise, or leads will be greatly appreciated.
Much thanks in advance.
