Support » Installing WordPress » Getting set_screen_options error after upgrading manually to 2.8
7 years, 10 months ago
After manually upgrading to WordPress 2.8 I get an error message when I try to login:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: set_screen_options() in /homepages/9/d282044330/htdocs/xxx/wp-admin/admin.php on line 45
xxx = blog folder
Does anyone know how to fix this (or even what it means)?
Thanks, in advance, for your help!!!

I am having the same issue with one blog I just upgraded. I wonder if there is a fix or if I need to revert to the backed up version?
NB line 45 has this:
So the function does not work, but why?
I found out screen_options () should be defined here:
* /wp-admin/includes/template.php -> line 3663
$return .= "<div class='screen-options'>\n";
Referenced 1 times:
* /wp-admin/includes/template.php -> line 3461
Couldn’t find it myself
well after doing a manual installation – after I put back the old files – I managed to get the upgrade done. So all is well. No clue why I had that error before though…
