No admin menu after upgrading to 2.0 (11 posts)

    Hello there,

    I just upgraded to WP 2.0, and a very weird thing happens to me: after I login, the dashboard comes, but there's no admin menu on top of the page. Only a "Logout ()" link.

    Am i missing something ? If not, what could have gone wrong ? Please not I did not move the blog.

    FWIW, the blog is at mll02.free.fr.

    Thanks for your help,

    MLL

    Try deactivating some plugins. Also logout and delete the wp-content/cache folder.

    Thanks, but I had deactivated all plugins before upgrade (I really carefully followed the upgrade instructions), so I guess that's not it.

    I just logged out, and deleted the cache folder, then logged in: the problem remains.

    In your Dashboard are you seeing information under the WordPress Development Blog or Other WordPress News?

    Yes. I took a snapshot of what I have, it's there: http://mll02.free.fr/temp/wpadmin.png

    Maybe related to the wp_usermeta not being correct for the admin user.

    If you can use phpMyAdmin and make sure you have these two records for the admin user_id:

    meta_key = wp_capabilites
    value = a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;}

    meta_key = wp_user_level
    value = 10

    The wp_ in wp_capabilities and wp_user_level could be different for you if your database prefix is NOT wp_.

    The data you describe is in my database, too... :(

    Maybe the fatal error at http://mll02.free.fr/ part of the problem?

    Good idea... I commented out the section (uses a plugin, hence the error), but no change to the admin part... :(

    Maybe reupload at least the files in wp-admin folder?

    Yay, you're a genius ! :)

    Frankly, shame on the sync function of Dreamweaver...

    Thanks a lot for your help :)
