    Hi Guys

    I was using 2.8.5 and yesterday installed WordPress SEO Plugin and now getting this error message

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function home_url() in /home/****/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/frontend/class-frontend.php on line 369

    By the looks of it as the plugin is not compatible with the older version am using this issue has come to life.

    I am not able to login to the dashboard as well to uninstall the plugin.

    How do I resolve this?

    Pls help


  2. Since your web admin is tanked, try using FTP and delete the wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo directory.

    Just that one wordpress-seo directory and nothing else. Once that's done see if you can log into the dashboard.

    Side note: Version 2.8.5 is fairly ancient in dog years, you may want to backup the whole works and do the multiple upgrades to become current.

    You'll find most plugins are using features that aren't compatible with 2.8.5.

  4. in terms of upgrading to newer version i was supposed to do it today.

    Make sure you've got full backups file and database and know how to restore them. It's the best safety net you can have in case one of the multiple upgrades go south.
