Fatal Error with "The Author" (3 posts)

    Greetings
    I’ve been testing 1.5 on a separate server while I test and tweak everything and it was allgoing fine. I put an install on my live server and I’ve run into trouble…

    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function: the_author() in /home/daviking/public_html/blog/wp-admin/edit.php on line 199�

    Basicly, whenever I run into a link identifying the author on the site, be it on the index or a edit page, everything comes to a screeching halt. Any ideas?

    Make sure you have the file:

    wp-includes/template-functions-author.php

    And if you do, try replacing it with a fresh copy:

    Replacing it did the trick. Much thanks.
