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.

    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.

    Did you get this fixed? I’m having the same issue.

    Hi everyone,

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