MAJOR BUG with 2.8 (4 posts)

    Hello,

    This occurred right after I updated to WordPress 2.8:

    When I try to move my widgets around in my Dashboard, none of the widgets will drag. I highlight and drag over them, but no widgets move.

    My site is http://www.clubpenguincp.com/

    Thanks

    Have a look at this:

    It’s probably some plugin conflicting with the new functionality, or maybe your browser cache needs to be cleared.

    I have the same problem plus the site takes 5 minutes to load. How do I downgrade to 2.71?

    The easiest way (at least for me) to downgrade is to use the manual "upgrade method" with an archive of your previous wordpress version. (Whatever you had before trying to upgrade.) Download here.

    Basically do the same thing you did to upgrade to 2.8. replace the wp-include and wp-admin folders, (and whatever you replaced in the wp-content folder.)

    run the upgrade.php http://yoursite.com/wp-admin/upgrade.php (or wherever your blog is located.)

    And that should be it! :D
    Hope this helps.
