    see it at http://whootah.com
    Sorry to post so much, i just want to provide as much info as possible.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: comments_popup_link() in /home/radialmo/public_html/whootah/wp-content/themes/whootah2/index.php on line 17

    my line 17 is this:
    <p class="postmetadata">Posted in <?php the_category(', ') ?> | <?php edit_post_link('Edit', '', ' | '); ?> <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »'); ?>

    My theme is a mix between blix and kubrick.
    if in my header.php file i add:
    <?php comments_popup_script(); ?>

    I get the error on my webpage:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: comments_popup_script() in /home/radialmo/public_html/whootah/wp-content/themes/whootah2/header.php on line 25

    it's like no calls to comment functions are working at all. when i go to dashboard, the area for comments says:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_comment_author_link() in /home/radialmo/public_html/whootah/wp-admin/index.php on line 52

    line 52 says:
    echo '

  2. ' . sprintf(__('%1$s on %2$s'), get_comment_author_link(), 'comment_post_ID) . '#comment-' . $comment->comment_ID . '">' . get_the_title($comment->comment_post_ID) . '');

    Try deleting and reuploading comment-functions.php in the wp-includes/ directory. It could have been corrupted (and so the functions in it are not being called).

    hmmmmmm that comment-functions.php file in includes was size 0. not sure why that is, i did not delete anything under the includes directory during the upgrade preparation, and when i uploaded i told filezilla to overwrite all files.

    regardless, i reuploaded the file from the same source i originally uploaded from, it overwrote it, correct file size now and the site is magically working again.

    i didnt look there, i was looking at the theme folder for a problem. thanks so much Kafkaesqui!

    "when i uploaded i told filezilla to overwrite all files."

    Yep, ftp is notoriously good (or rather, bad) at crunching overwritten files. It's why around here we recommend deleting them before uploading.
