    Thought it was time to update but discover that when going from 2.7.1 --> 2.8 or any version above, all posts content disappears in my custom theme. I know some basic coding but can't really find a solution. Hope you can help out, bless! btw, post content showing fine in default wp theme.

    2.8 installation (posts content not showing): http://test.r.fm
    2.7.1 installation (how it should look) http://r.fm

    In order to update your rather old version of WordPress to the current version, you will need to carry out a series of smaller upgrade steps: eg: 2.7 -> 2.9 -> 3.0.4 -> 3.1

    Ensure that you deactivate all plugins and switch to the default theme before beginning the backup process. Also carry out a full database backup before & after each upgrade step.

    With regard to your custom theme, I'd suggest reviewing the Codex for details of The Loop and all template tags currently being used.

    Hi esmi and thanks for your answer, been checking around the template tags and The Loop but haven't gotten any wiser. Perhaps someone has a more straightforward solution?
