    Site: http://www.opinionaustralia.com

    Upgraded to Version 3.0 all went well until I clicked on the 'clean up' button. Screen went blank and then printed the following error message:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare is_rtl() (previously declared in /home/opinion/public_html/wordpress/wp-includes/locale.php:347) in /home/opinion/public_html/wordpress/wp-includes/locale.php on line 349

    I have *no* idea what to do to fix it.

    Suggestions please??

    - switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder using FTP (or use whatever file management application your host provides)

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    The issue is most likely the Events Calendar plugin.

    @esmi: Thanks for the suggestion but I'm not sure how to do what you suggest.

    @ nacin: if I get back in I'll try disabling it.

    Right now I don't know how to get at the software :(

    Just follow the guide that esmi linked to reset your plugins. Then, whatever you do, don't reactivate the Events Calendar plugin.

    @esmi (again): Finally managed to follow instructions and got the site back... many thanks!! :)

    I'm just about to start the tedious process of working through the plugin directory changing *their* names (starting with calendar) and seeingwhich is the guilty party!!

    I got the same error, did the plugin reset.

    Got the Dashboard back, but not the site itself.

    I just updated around 20 WordPress sites and this is the only one that is giving me this issue.



    The site didn't like the new twenty-ten theme, which it defaulted to for some reason after upgrade. Switched back to custom theme and all is good.

    So, never mind.
