    well, going back to 2.5 doesn't really solve the problem you got with 2.5.1.

    I'm also having problems with my WP installation on my server. Can't click save/post buttons. Also they are flashing and my CPU usage goes up to 100%.

    Opened a bugreport yesterday.

    downgrading is a possibility, but i'd rather see this fixed.

    Well, I solved the problem in my blog deleting all wordpress content, plugins and themes. Then reuploading 2.5.1 and enabling the plugins one by one.

    I don't know what could have happened :m

    I am having the same problem. HOW the HELL can this happen in an upgrade from 2.5 to 2.5.1?

    From my point of view this one is NOT solved. Downgrading to 2.5 now...

    I cannot post without the blog being taken off line by my host.

    something is locking my php and then making 25 processes all at the same time.

    not the server itsself, not the plugins, it is my db and some script issue.

    any thoughts?

    I am having the exact same problems. Did a complete fresh install of 2.51 with whole new database. My entire system is down to crawl mode.

    I'm also having problems with my WP installation on my server. Can't click save/post buttons. Also they are flashing and my CPU usage goes up to 100%.

    Could use some help here guys.

    Anyone?
    thanks

    Why is this thread marked "resolved"?

    Anyway, I have a similar issue. When I manage to sign in to my dashboard, I note the following message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_html_excerpt() in /home/rabsaul/public_html/wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php on line 347

    I've tried re-uploading that particular file, but it didn't fix the problem.

    Then when I go to post, the browser hangs and the post does not publish.

    BTW, this is the apparently offending line in that file:

    $content = wp_html_excerpt($content, 50) . ' ...';

    rabbisaul: "Call to undefined function" almost always means that you did not upload ALL of the files.

    Delete wp-admin and wp-includes off your server, then reupload them from a fresh download of WordPress. Do NOT overwrite the existing files. Delete first, then upload.

    I did that. I deleted the old files first. I have uploaded all the files at least twice.

    Well, the problem here is that if you're still getting that error, then you missed something or uploaded the wrong files.

    wp_html_excerpt is located in the wp-includes/formatting.php file.

    Add me to the list of people for whom admin performance is dog-slow. Plus, the reminder telling me to upgrade is still there. I wonder if I missed a file somehow.

    Thanks, Otto42.

    Grr, that's what I was afraid of.

    That file breaks my page and I get the following error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_shortcode_regex() in /home/rabsaul/public_html/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 95

    :(

    Line 95 in formatting. php, BTW, is:

    $pee = preg_replace('/<p>\s*?(' . get_shortcode_regex() . ')\s*<\/p>/s', '$1', $pee); // don't auto-p wrap shortcodes that stand alone

    And with regard to this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/171849?replies=7

    ... shortcodes.php IS uploaded and apparently fine.

  22. Samuel Wood (Otto)

    And does line 79 of the wp-includes/shortcodes.php file have the function get_shortcode_regex() { on it?

    How about your wp-settings.php file in the root directory? Did you update that properly?

    See, this is why I didn't tell you what file to upload in the first place. If you missed one, then you missed more than one. Upload ALL of the files. Every single last one of them. Make certain. Check. Double check. Hell, delete the original files and then upload the new ones. I don't care what you have to do, just get those files on that server. You have not upgraded until EVERY FILE IS THERE.

    I cannot stress this enough.

    Gah. Thanks. I realized that with all the emphasis on the wp-admin and wp-includes folders, I failed to upload the root directory files. The wording in the upgrade doc isn't as clear as it could be, but still: Duh.

    I'm having the exact same issue. All Admin seems to work except the Post Edit. It loads OK, but then it slows down, flashing Save/Publish, Image Uploader fails to load.

    Barely usable with IE, completely unusable with Firefox - both Vista and Windows.

    I'm not ready for ZeusII's solutions as documented here and in the Trac post. Anyone have any ideas? Seems script, flash, or Ajax related, but that's just a guess.

    i am having the same problem. I'm not particularly technical - I tried replacing the files with a set i downloaded right before i upgraded ,but it didn't fix it - can anyone tell me how to "downgrade" properly and retain my posts etc?

    I would sure like to know who marked this as resolved...because I along with a lot of others I'm reading are still having this SLOW down problem to the point that wordpress is absolutely useless.

    I agree. This is certainly NOT resolved. I was so frustrated with Firefox 3 and Safari lagging on OS 10.5.4 that I downgraded to 2.5. Now that I've done that everything works perfectly again!

    2.5.1 was a mess with the auto-save error because no matter how many times I deleted the wp-admin and wp-includes directories and re-uploaded them, the same error occured.

    So, obviously, now that 2.5 is working perfectly, the error must be part of 2.5.1 because it works great now.

    So those of you who are having trouble with 2.5.1, just downgrade to 2.5 All of my plugins still work swimmingly and now posting is a breeze.

    I have this same problem, only that I narrowed it down to this: the Text Link Ads (TLA) plugin. When activated, saving a post takes forever (it never stops actually). When deactivated, saving a post takes some time, but it ends succesfully.
    I'm looking for a solution to this issue, if it's a TLA bug, or a WP bug, or maybe something to configure on my server.
