I've lost editing capability with WordPress 2.9.2. I am unable to create a new blog entry and I am unable to edit an old entry. This problem extends to not being able to save an API key value. I am able to deactivate Plugins one by one, but not in bulk. Changed settings within Plugins will not stay fixed or I receive a message to try it again.
While the automatic reinstall is also broken, I did a complete reinstall of WP Version 2.9.2. Still no success in curing the problem.
Several host servers, where I keep my blog, were hacked and apparently something happened to my blog during that invasion as I was not working on the blog when the problem started to show up. Funny characters began to appear at the end of most sentences. These will look different depending on the browser.
Would anyone have suggestions where to begin to cure this problem? Reinstalling WP is not the answer. Thanks in advance.
