    Hey Guys,

    BulletProof took the time and upgraded their software right away. Just go to this link: http://popularblogsite.com/wordpress-3-5-problems-temporary-fix/ and it will explain how to fix any issues you are currently having.

    Hopefully WordPress fixes this in a day or so.

    Thanks,

    This "article" sounds like a bit of a tall tale.

    My first question is... If the update has completely broken your site, how can you install, activate and configure that plugin after you've downloaded it?

    My second question is... What does that plugin actually do to fix problems like these? It's a security plugin, it doesn't mention anywhere on it's page anything about fixing issues with WP version upgrades.

    it doesn't mention anywhere on it's page anything about fixing issues with WP version upgrades.

    In the case of this particular plugin, Version .47.6, which was installed on some installations, had a bug in it which prevented many WordPress 3.5 features from working correctly, Version .47.7 fixed those incompatibilities.

    Installing this plugin will not magically fix anything, but if you already had it installed, upgrading it to the latest version will fix things.

    And as I asked before...

    My first question is... If the update has completely broken your site, how can you install, activate and configure that plugin after you've downloaded it?

    Even if it's installed, if your site is down and you can't get into the admin area, you can't update it, can you?

    @Dion, isn't what you've said there to do with the plugin having issues with WP 3.5, not with the issues being in WP 3.5?

    There's still no where in that page that says what the issue actually is apart from 'screwed my site'! How can anyone recommend a fix for an issue that they haven't even idenftified??

    Different users will have different opinions of "completely broken" - to you and me, It's a fatal error preventing access, to a user, in this case the thread creator, and posters in other threads, it's Javascript not loading (because that's what the plugin was blocking, all JS in the admin from loading).

    @Dion, isn't what you've said there to do with the plugin having issues with WP 3.5, not with the issues being in WP 3.5?

    Yes, Thats exactly what I'm saying, The post here was misleading, and it doesn't fix any problems in WP 3.5, mearly they've updated the plugin to fix the incompatibilities. I'm only posting to say that for others, who come across this thread, installing this plugin will not magically fix anything for them, unless they're already running it.
