Support » Fixing WordPress » Upgraded to 2.8

  • Upgraded from 2.7.1 to 2.8 (via automatic upgrade) and got the following error inside the dashboard:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function get_link() on a non-object in /home/mccallum/public_html/wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php on line 647

    The public side appears to be fine.

    I have re-installed the wp-admin/includes/ folder (just in case). Any help for this? I am not seeing anyone else with this exact error.

    you need to re-upload the wp-includes/ directory —

    Hi,

    First restore the wordpress 2.7.1 or backup of your blog and upgrade your blog again to 2.8 with fresh download of the source..

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    Ah, thank you! That did the trick!

    Okay, I could have sworn the error message was gone… it is back. Under “Incoming Links” I have the error:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function get_link() on a non-object in /home/mccallum/public_html/wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php on line 647

    After that there is no additional information on the dashboard.

    I have done a clean install of WordPress 2.8. All other sections of the site are working it appears.

    I fixed this problem in my own blog, but it involves some coding… for those interested, here’s the link:
