[resolved] Automatic update to 2.8 killed my dashboard (19 posts)

    Hello, I tried updating my blog(lilcube.com/blog) to 2.8 with the automatic update plugin and needless to say it failed. First time in probably 10 total uses of the automatic update plugin. Anyway my blog appears to be intact but when I try to go to the dashboard I get the following error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: esc_url() in /home/lilcube/public_html/blog/wp-includes/class.wp-styles.php on line 105

    Tried to use the backups I made via phpmyadmin, get errors on that as well. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Looks like error is in your theme somewhat. Try another theme for a check. And try to reupload / reinstall your theme.

    The function esc_url() exists in WordPress, perhaps the upgrade wasn't successful. Try the build-in upgrade or download/install with FTP.

    Sorry, I'm a bit dense. How do I go about changing my theme if I can't access the dashboard?

    I tried re-uploading the theme, same problem. Blog works, dashboard not so much

    azaozz solution is best. I had about same error message than you for my theme and when installation of wordpress was completed i had lost the visual editor. After a wordpress re-upgrade and many attempts of closing and refreshing my firefox browser, the editor finally came back.

    Woohoo! Downloaded/installed the upgrade via FTP and all is right with the world. Thanks for the help, as I was really stressing.

    How did you do that Lilcube?

    I'm having problem too. Can't even access to the admin area.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_site_admin() in /home/user/public_html/domain/wp-content/plugins/sem-google-analytics/sem-google-analytics-admin.php on line 20

    Can someone help?

    I just went here (http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress) and followed the instructions. Pretty painless process. Hope it works for you. I'm far from an expert so hopefully someone can help you better.

    I have the exact same problem as JustBlog. wondering if LilCube's solution works for that as well. As I'm not that technically inclined, I'm sitting it out for a few hours. The front site seems to work OK, so...

    @ justblog

    i had same problem,
    just delete all your google analytics files with ftp
    then switch to this (compatible) one

    Had the Google Analytics issue as well and L7world's fix worked for me just fine.

    I found a solution, thanks to this blog!...It was a nightmare, but it seems some plugins are giving some problems...Try this solution first...

    I had to enter into phpmyadmin and deactivated all the plugins...then I managed to enter and update the plugins for 2.8

    Thanks to the author of this blog as well.

    I tried a manual upgrade and I tried disabling all the plugins. My blog works fine, but my dashboard has no formatting and many options are broken after doing an automatic upgrade to WordPress 2.8. I am on GoDaddy's free hosting using PHP5 and MSQL 4.1. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Same problem as Nickhamm (same hosting, etc; no prior installation)

    I did the automatic update for 2.8 and my dashboard looked fine, made a post but could not enter any tags(very strange), then I published the post.

    Next day went into my admin and the dash board is all messed up. It looks nothing like the previous one.

    Here's a Youtube video of what my dashboard looks like.

    jordy1 - Same issue here too. I looked at your video and said, thank-god someone else with GoDaddy.com hosting and WP 2.8 install with the same issue. There is another thread here with this issue:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/280162

    Anyone figure this out yet? One suggestion was changing permissions to 755, but it doesn't work. If you use IE8 you can see the wp-admin page, but any other browser, it looks like it's missing some CSS.

    I am also getting this error

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_site_admin() in /home/justfixi/public_html/wp-content/plugins/sem-google-analytics/sem-google-analytics-admin.php on line 20

    I am a techno phobic, and so hoping someone can please help me with fixing this, i can not see my dashboard!!
