    Hi,

    Why am I getting this error:

    WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1]

    It is written in the right sidebar of my site. See http://www.concrit.org

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    What did you do before it stopped working?
    If you did an upgrade - read about non-compatible themes and template tags.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags#Category_tags
    Check out and replace the deprecated tags.

    Thanks, that what I did... updated to 2.2. I will do a roll back.

    No, don't roll back - that's always a bad choice.
    Read and follow the instructions!

    A roll back is not the correct response to this error. Updating your theme and fixing the incorrect template tag is.

    Is a roll back ever the right option? I started a new site on 2.2 but lots of standard plugins I have used before don't play nice together anymore. I am beginning to think it would be easier to just start over, using 2.1 again. But would the db be compatible? Or would I have to recreate all my posts? There are only a few....so it wouldn't be too bad I suppose... any thoughts or suggestions?
