    - reading the troubleshooting 3.5 master list to see if any of your problems is listed there: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-35-master-list

    - flushing any caching plugins you might be running, as well as server and/or browser caches.

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder from a fresh download of WordPress. by using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides (Manual Update).

    - re-running the upgrade via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    I'm having the same problem. How can I deactivate plugins or switch themes if I can't log into my dashboard?

    ben_giff: Removing plugins or themes can be done via FTP by simply renaming or deleting their folders.

    I too am getting:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_taxonomies_for_attachments() in /websites/123reg/LinuxPackage22/ca/bb/ie/cabbieblog.com/public_html/blog/wp-admin/menu.php on line 67

    I can't log into my administrator panel

    I've reset my plugins folder via FTP or the file manager provided in your host's control panel as follows:
    1. Via FTP or your host's file manager, navigate to the wp-contents folder (directory)
    2. Via FTP or your host's file manager, rename the folder "plugins" to "plugins.hold"
    3. Login to your WordPress administration menus (/wp-admin)
    4. Via FTP or your host's file manager, rename "plugins.hold" back to "plugins"

    WP is still not allowing me to log in

    It will not let me login too! How can I go back to 3.4?

  10. This is not a theme or plugin conflict. It is from a failed upgrade.

    get_taxonomies_for_attachments() is a new function introduced in 3.5 and is defined in wp-includes/media.php

    If your getting an undefined function error for it you still have the old media.php file and your update failed.

    You will need to manually re install 3.5 following the codex Manual Update instructions.

    Supposing you backed up everything. Do a clean install if you want to go back to 3.4

    Yes, it's best to start a new thread which you can do here:

    (It's at the bottom of each forum page.)

    But the error message you're seeing is discussed in this list of known 3.5 problems:


    In your case, it looks like it's coming from the digiproveblog plug-in?
