Support » Fixing WordPress » Problems after upgrading to WordPress 3.2.1

  • Today I auto-upgraded my blog to WP 3.2.1. but immediately after I refreshed the page I noticed in the admin area that the entire left side menu was gone. Yeah, that column is completely missing. So the menu area where you see the drop-downs for Posts, Pages, Settings, Plugins, Permalinks, etc is gone. My blog was perfectly fine before that and I knew this was going to happen I would not upgrade..

    Anyone with a similar problem? Any solutions?

    Your ideas/solutions are welcome!

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme’s folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    – re-running the upgrade manually using /wp-admin/upgrade.php.

    Hello, I have the same problem i am using versatile theme, and the menu usually on my left side has disappeared.
    Can someone help me to solve this please, I am new to word press and need step by step instructions on what to do. Can you help?



    This is the only way I could fix the update problem

    There was no problem with the update on my local machine.
    Found the problem relating to the database on my virtual host.

    It might be worth starting with a fresh database and importing the backup of your content only.

    Also using this method there is no need to add the following to your wp-config using this process:
    define(‘SCRIPT_DEBUG’, true);
    define(‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false )
