    I posted yesterday to say that after upgrading akismet my plugin editor vanished, so I can't get to any of them, or install others. Akismet is not activated and I am now in spam city.

    If I upgrade what do I risk happening? Is it better to live like this than mess the whole thing up?

    You risk nothing worse than what you are experiencing now...and you may even improve things. Just be sure to deactivate all plugins and take a backup before you upgrade.

    I can't de-activate anything because I can't get into the plugin editor :-)

    yes you can.

    there is a sticky thread at the top of this forum titled, "2.8 Problems and Solutions (FAQ)". The second item in the list provides a link that addresses this.
