Support » Fixing WordPress » Missing Feeds on Dashboard & Sidebar – plus, no Plugin auto-update

  • Starting yesterday, I noticed that my widgets for displaying bookmarks and flickr photos in my blog sidebar are showing nothing. When I logged on to check things out from the WordPress innards, I discovered that none of the feeds in the Dashboard are pulling their feeds in, which I found doubly suspicious.

    So, I went to look at my Plugins to see if there was anything suspicious going on because I always blame those first. I noticed commentluv, Tag Managing Thing, and My Custom Widgets needed to be upgraded. However, when I clicked on the links to upgrade automatically, which is the only option other than to view info about them, and selected proceed, I got an error saying:

    Download failed.: Operation timed out after 30000 milliseconds with 4380 out of 68302 bytes received

    Plugin upgrade Failed

    This made me triply suspicious.

    However, I gave it all the benefit of the doubt that it might be that Vista laptop and that Internet connection; however, I am now on an XP PC in another city, using a different connection and I am having the same result on the next day.

    I have cleared the cache using wp-super-cache, which I installed this morning. For a brief moment I managed to see the bookmarks, but the next refresh took them away.

    Does anyone know what might be going on? Any suggestions how I can fix it?
