Support » Installing WordPress » Posts’s text disappeared after update to 2.8

  • Resolved leo_the_last


    Hi all,

    I just updated my blog to wordpress 2.8 and suddenly all the text of my posts disappeared. Images in post still show but text is not even rendered to the html…
    The theme I used is homemade and has been working since WP2.5. I have barely changed the php as I mainly tweaked the css.

    Here’s the code I used to display a post:

    <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    								<h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    								<div class="entry">
    									<?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;'); ?>
    								<p class="postmetadata">
    									Posted on <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>
    									at  <?php the_time('H:i') ?>
    									by <?php the_author() ?>
    									in <?php the_category(', ') ?>
    									<?php the_tags(' | tags: ', ', ', '<br />'); ?>
    									<?php edit_post_link('Edit', ' | ', ''); ?>
    									<?php comments_popup_link(' | No Comments »', ' | 1 Comment »', ' | % Comments »'); ?>

  • Do yo see text when you switch to the default theme?
    And please supply a link to your site.

    Sorry for forgetting the link… Here it is:

    And no I still don’t see the text rendered when switching to the default theme as you can see.

    I still can edit my post when in admin mode so it seems the DB is safe and sound and it’s really just a matter of rendering the pages.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    the text of the comments is similarly not rendered, even though smileys are…

    Wow, never seen that one. I clicked the feeds out of criosity. The comment are visible there and the content gives this error:

    Warning:  preg_replace_callback() [function.preg-replace-callback]: Unknown modifier '|' in /homez.55/elzzrndq/sites/something/wordpress/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 1347

    Don’t know what it means, maybe someone else does. For starters you could look into that file and see what it reads on line 1347 and later upload a fresh copy of that file to wp-includes.

    That was a very good hint! After looking at it, it seems it is caused by the “Custom Smilies” plugin, which I now have deactivated, and everything went back to normal.

    Thanks for the kind help!

    Good for you!
