    I did a new install of wordpress 2.8.5.
    I have never used wordpress before. The install went fine. I posted some blogs, but I couldn't see what I was typing until I posted and previewed.
    The HTML tab option doesn't work.
    Many of the buttons don't work, when you click on them they don't work.
    When I try to configure the sidebar for widgets. I just get the little 2 lines w/ arrows on all 4 points , and then when you try to move it it just highlights everything, all the widgets.
    I can't add pictures or other media.
    Any help at all would be appreciated.
    Is there a stable version I can downgrade to? How do I downgrade?

    2.8.5 is a stable version. Try re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folder from a fresh download of WP 2.8.5. If you have installed and activated any plugins, deactivate them.
