    If you had a failed upgrade (as in: it lead to problems), did you upgrade via the dashboard or did you upgrade manually (via SSH, FTP, etc)?

    a) dashboard
    b) manually

    Please respond with a or b, so the developers and helping board-members can check if the problem is in teh updater or not.

    Most upgrades that have had problems were done automatically, but most upgrade problems have been a result of incompatible plugins and themes.

    a) dashboard

    Manual updates are working great for me. I have updated 32 WordPress sites to 2.8. The first 5 I used the auto update feature and three of the blogs turned out to have problems, I fixed those 3 blogs by manually uploading the 2.8 files to the server. They work fine now.

    The other 27 blogs I have updated were done manually and are working great!

    A: I upgraded from 2.8 to 2.8.3 using the dashboard. Now I have trouble editing previously created pages. I'm going to try to work with some plugins to see if this helps.

    RESOLVED:
    The issue appears to be with plug in wp-super-cache and my improper or incomplete install of it.
