Support » Fixing WordPress » Getting rid of Google Gears option

  • Resolved coinsguy


    I turned on Google Gears and it made a mess of my blog. Text disappeared, side bar items gone, post title displays then disappears. I don’t have the time and inclination to deal with it so I looked for a way to completely disable Google Gears in the Tools options. Couldn’t find anything specific on how I could disable it entirely so that it is not even an option on my blog so I messed around and ended up modifying tools.php. I commented out the following line in the code:

    if (! $is_opera) {

    and replaced it with this:

    if ( ! 0 == 0 ) {

    which forces the Gears option to never be available. Don’t know if the change will stay in the next update of WordPress but the option to completely disable Gears option should be available as an admin function.
