Dashboard Messed Up (25 posts)

    Hi,

    I recently set up my blog, but I am having trouble with the dashboard. The whole dashboard shows up, but it is almost as if the template is missing and only the text is showing up. I am including a photo so you can see what it looks like.

    Anyone know a fix for this?

    Thanks so much!

    Try deactivating all plugins and check to see if this resolves the problem. If it does, activate the plugins one by one - checking the dashboard after each re-activation - until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    deactivating the plugins did not do anything....but then i tried it in a different browser (safari instead of firefox) and it worked perfectly.

    Do you know why that is?

    Not without seeing your site.

    Hi, I am having the exact same issue. I just installed my site yesterday (hosting w/ Godaddy) and the blog itself seems to work fine, but the dashboard is nearly impossible to use. I've tried to uninstall and reinstall, and I've tried several different browsers and it always looks the same. Just bare bones HTML, no images, not a thing.
    It's a brand new blog, so there are no plugin issues, the only thing I did was test out a different theme or two to see if it worked - it did (on the blog), but dashboard was still messed up.

    I'm seeing this as an ongoing problem for a few people (particular Firefox users, it seems), but no solutions. Any words of advice? My site is animalpa.ws

    Mine is doing the same thing! Looks the exact same way as the other screenshots! What's going on?? Never had this issue before. Looks this way in both Firefox and Chrome.

  7. GoDaddy free hosting is the problem. The ads served by GoDaddy whack the WP admin section. Their paid hosting is fine, so the best thing to do is upgrade.

    It doesn't seem like it's the ads, because using IE with the ads gives the formatting back, but not the click-and-drag functionality. Using chrome with adblock has the same formatting-stripped result. *confusion*

    Does Safari have the full functionality with click-and-drop with the widgets? I may try that browser next...

    --- hence why I do not recommend GoDaddy as a webhost, especially for WordPress.

    Is this a Godaddy specific thing then blondishnet?

    Read the other day not to use Godaddy with WordPress. Unfortunately I already was set up with them before i installed.

    It may or may not be. I just have had bad experiences with them. It is something you deal with on some hosts. Even if they offer WordPress as a one-click install, you are not guaranteed that the webhost will be set to be able to handle WordPress properly unless they say they meet the requirements needed.

    So, it is just a personal preference. I am more apt to recommend Host Gator or another webhost over GoDaddy until GoDaddy offers better service for hostees using WordPress.

    Yeah I'll keep an eye on it and see how it goes. Will try Host Gator next time and compare how they run.

    Thanks for the info.

    I am experiencing the same problem (no formatting for the last 24 hours or so) with WordPress 2.9.2 and a MySQK 5.0 database on GoDaddy paid hosting. I see the problem on both Firefox 3.6.3 (latest) Mac and Safaru Version 4.0.5 (6531.22.7) Mac (latest). Macintosh is Finder version 10.6.4. (Snow Leopard)

    After reading the comments above, I have queued the patch that exists on the GoDaddy site, since that worked for McCherney. (Nervously!)

    I will let you know if it works.

    Oops! Make that MySQL, not MySQK! :-)

    Whew! McCherney and I agree! The patch on the GoDaddy Hosting Connection site resolved the problem! I am going to email that fact to GoDaddy Support so they know.

    My 2 cents: I have had nothing but good support from GoDaddy since I started my blog in 2007. I realize that they cannot support coding changes, so if you need that kind of help, you should look elsewhere.

    I come from a high-tech background (but am not a programmer) with several Silicon Valley companies.

    Have also just queued the patch so hope i get the same results.

    Must also add I haven't experienced any problems with Godaddy for the past two years I have used them. These are my first steps with WordPress and will keep an open mind to see how it goes.

    Maybe it's a case of them still getting up to speed with WordPress after their own blogging software was unsuccessful,dumped it, and went in with WordPress.

    Will keep you posted on the patch update..

    OK, the patch did not work, but I think the problem is because of something I've done.

    When i look at My Applicatons in Godaddy, it states my url as www.(mysite).com/blog

    It should read www.(mysite).com/wordpress

    A few days ago i changed the root folder name from WordPress to blog, updated the links, but the blog screwed up.

    I changed the name back to WordPress and everything was fine, then the Dashboard broke.

    So i guess i just need to change the url in my applications from 'blog' back to 'Wordpress'. Can I do this without doing a re installation?

    I just had the same problem - I updated all of my plugins and refreshed the dashboard - fixed the problem.
