How can I uninstall 2.8 and downgrade?
I second that! 2.8 has some issues and is not ready for prime-time. Would really appreciate an easy fix to downgrade. There are going to be a lot of people that need it.
To revert to 2.7.1 restore your database backup, restore your files backup.
Is there an easy way to do this? And Admin is hosed. Where do I find those? Thanks!
If you didn’t make backups then ask your host for both database and files backups. For future use, read WordPress Backups.
If none of that is possible, might get the 2.7.1 files from http://wordpress.org/download/release-archive/, then follow Steps 7 and 8 of Upgrading WordPress Extended, except you are uploading the 2.7.1 files.
Please note that most 2.8 problems have been caused by plugins and themes not being 2.8 compatible.
I disabled all of plugins and still no joy.
This is not going to be fun… 🙁
Same here… made no backup, tried automatic upgrade, lost site.
I second that, Andrew!
I am also having problems where an upgrade (with all plugins disabled) will show NOTHING!
The view source is even blank…
I; fortunately, could revert to last nights backup.
I have tried on several of my sites to upgrade to 2.8, thinking maybe a different theme or something would make a difference. No Joy!
Upgraders – Beware!
Yeah moderator..have you tried searching for a 2.8 compatible theme?
THERE ARE NONE
