Carrington theme crashed after WP3.0 auto update (2 posts)

    I updated my blog from within WP 2.9.1 to 3.0 and after that my site stopped working.

    This is the message that I get:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function add_rewrite_tag() on a non-object in /home/islando2/public_html/wp-includes/taxonomy.php on line 289

    I am using the Carrington theme which have worked without any problems, until now.

    This is what line 289 says in the taxonomy.php file says:

    $wp_rewrite->add_rewrite_tag("%$taxonomy%", '([^/]+)', $args['query_var'] ? "{$args['query_var']}=" : "taxonomy=$taxonomy&term=");

    I can't even access the admin interface as I get the same error message when trying to log on to my own blog.

    What is the reason for this problem and how can I solve it? (I'm not a developer, just code aware on a general level.)

    Should I downgrade my wp install and how is that done in an easy way?
    Can I change my theme in another way as I cannot access my admin settings?

    Help me out - I'm going nuts here and my site is down.....

    Try switching to the twentyten theme by renaming your current theme's folder using FTP (or use whatever file management application your host provides).
