Support » Installing WordPress » unable to access tools menu in admin panel after upgrade to WP2.7

  • Resolved erinj


    I upgraded to WP2.7, and all seemed to go smoothly. However, I have problems accessing two menu items in the admin panel.
    1. The main dashboard. /wp-admin/admin.php?page=index.php gives me a blank page. I can access the submenu items ok (e.g. wp stats)
    2. The tools menu (and any of its submenu items) give me a a 404.
    All other menus–settings, users, plugins, posts, media etc. — work as expected. Any ideas what is happening and how I can fix this? Thank you.

  • If you disable all Plugins what happens?

    @michaelh: Thank you for the suggestion. I have the same problem when all the plugins are deactivated: the admin panel menu items work as expected EXCEPT for the two cases I mention above.

    I also tested the domain settings, as my wp install is but the blog address I use is I still get the 404. The tool menu items point to /blog/wp-admin/tools.php, which is correct. So why the 404?

    All other menu items work as expected in the admin panel. Any suggestions are most appreciated.

    Change to the WordPress Default theme.

    Add a new user with Adminstrator Role, login as that user.

    Any difference?

    It seems I can’t add a new user. The “Add New” menu item also gives me a 404.

    I did another search of to see if anyone else has had similar problems. None reported. So, I decided there might well have been a problem during install. I reinstalled 2.7 and no longer have the problem. Thanks for your help MichaelH.
