[resolved] Dashboard Disappears After 3.9 Update (9 posts)

    Reposting this issue in a new thread per moderator request with additional detail.

    After initiating a manual upgrade to v3.9 on one of my sites, when I navigate to /wp-admin/edit.php?post_status=draft (which is normally how I get to my blog) and wait a second or two, my entire dashboard disappears. The entire left column goes solid black when this happens. The end site itself (what a visitor sees) appears unaffected and normal.

    The dashboard seems to disappear only when I click on Posts in the dashboard. If I click any link other than one of the Posts links before the dashboard disappears, the dashboard stays where it should. For example, I can click on Media or Links or Comments and the dashboard stays visible. If I then click on Posts, it disappears after a second or two.

    Very odd behavior.

    check your error_log

    is there any error?

    also disable all your plugins and see if problem same?

    I updated all my blog and no error so far.

    I'm investigating further. I have only three active plugins. Disabling WordPress Backup to Dropbox v1.8.1 stopped the dashboard from disappearing.

    I didn't see anything about this on the support site for that plugin and have sent a support request to the author. I'll update when I learn more.

    By the way, Ractors, the most recent entry in my error_log file was from just over two months ago. So nothing recent there. Thanks.

    I've not yet heard back from the author of the WordPress Backup to Dropbox plugin.

    Likely so.

    A new version of WordPress Backup to Dropbox was released yesterday. I could not find release notes on it, but it appears to have corrected the incompatibility with WordPress v3.9.
