[closed] Having New WordPress Dashboard Problems WIth new 3.2 Upgrade (29 posts)

    I just updated WordPress to the new 3.2 version, and I signed into my Dashboard and found that my left sidebar (with all of my administrational links like Plugins, Comments, Themes, etc.) is gone. I am not sure how to get it back. I can't find certain things that I need on WordPress now. I know it is still supposed to be there because I see it in the new 3.2 pictures.

    Try logging out, clear your browser cache and cookies, restart your browser and then try again. I've found that fixes many dashboard related issues.

    My problem is I can't see the dashboard at all...

    As I can see in 404techsupport, the problem seems to be in a plugin (WP-Insert), but I haven't this plugin.

    I just turned off that blasted WP-INSERT plugin and my dashboard is back to normal. Thanks to whoever figured this out. Blogabundo, I hope you can figure out how to fix your problem.

    I too am experiencing similar problems.

    I'm running a WP MU installation.

    The main Admin Dashboard shows the left sidebar menus, but none of the individual site Admins show those menus.

    I don't have the WP-Insert plug in.

    I've tried clearing my browser cache & cookies.

    Ideas anyone?

    Go to www. your blog address here.com/wp-admin/plugins.php (plugins management page) then disable plugins which interfere with layouts of the wordpress. That's all.....

    turn them al off. when you get the right plugin off (you wil se right away) then just turn al other on while having the one that you dont want off.

    good luck.

    I renamed plugin directory and three PHP files from W3Total Cache and finally can see the dashboard, but I have no plugins.

    After that, I set back the name to the plugins directory, and I have all my plugins inactive, but the dashboard works...

    I think someone should check why this... mess.

    I agree, this was definitely no upgrade but rather a downgrade. The thing is, some of the plugins I and others use, cost a lot of money and have been working fine. Now you have to de-activate them, lose the functionality and money so that WordPress can work properly. Pathetic!

    What is pathetic is that some plugin developers - especially those selling premium version plugins - cannot be bothered to test their plugins and have updates ready. WordPress 3.2 has been in beta and available for testing for months now and most decent developers will have already tested (and, if necessary, patched) their plugins or themes.

    If you have a complaint (and I agree that you do) aim it at the people who sold you these plugins. Not at WordPress.

    Wp-Insert was updated within hours to version 1.7.4 which fixes the blank sidebar issue...

    Has anyone noticed a unremovable horizontal scrollbar on the bottom of your browser?

    I am running:

    MacBook Pro 13'
    Snow Leopard (Latest Build)
    Google Chrome Browser

    I have tried stretching the browser window as large as possible but the horizontal scrollbar at the bottom won't go away? In addition, I have tried every other browser in my collection and I get the same problem (a horizontal scrollbar on the bottom).

    Does anybody else know how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance

    I am having all kinds of problems with the new 3.2 upgrade. I am running from a Mac and cannot do some of the simplist things like close a pop up window or attach images.

    There is no way to attach images from my image gallery. What the heck happened? Does anyone know how to uninstall the latest version of WordPress?

    Thank you,

    Thank you, you were right. I unplugged everything and now I'm up and running.

    Yep, I fixed it, I had a plugin that placed my company website logo in the corner of the admin page instead of the WordPress one... looks like I'll have to do it manually...

    USER Dashboards no good. I have just installed 3.2.1 and my admin dashboard works fine. But User dashboards only contain a profile so when screen options is chosen the only choice given is WordPress Blog and WordPress News along with the option of 1, 2, 3, and 4 columns - Nothing else!

    I am using latest Firefox browser but have also checked in Internet Explorer. I have cleared the cache but this does not help. I have set up my own very basic theme which appears to work OK. I have also reactivated the default theme, this doesn't help either. I have no plugins at all.

    Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
