v3.0.1 wp-admin left menu problems

  • Brand new install of 3.0.1, no added plugins, defualt theme. (Linus, Apache, PHP5 mysql5).

    2 bugs…

    1. When I click on “Comments”, the page that loads stops at menu item Plugins, shows nothing else and all down arrows do not work.

    2. When I click on “Menus” under “Appearance”, same as #1 AND am getting a js error ‘postboxes’ is undefined load-scripts.php Line 157

    I have to believe these are 3.0.1 problems because I have another website using 2.9.2 and have no problems.

    Any ideas?

    Try downloading WordPress again and delete then replace your copies of the /wp-admin/ and /wp-includes/ directories with fresh copies from the download.

    James, did exactly as you suggested and it made no difference, still having the exact same 2 issues.

    Try increasing PHP’s memory allocation. It probably won’t work, but it’s worth a try. Here are four ways to increase PHP’s memory allocation:

    1. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini
    If your line shows 32M try 64M:
    memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)
    
    2. If you don't have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:
    php_value memory_limit 64M
    
    3. Try adding this line to your wp-config.php file:
    Increasing memory allocated to PHP
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');
    
    4. Talk to your host.

    James, tired it and still no luck. I have a dedicated server which has 12gig of ram and dual quadcore processors. It’s odd because the other wordpress site I have is 2.9.2 and it works fine. Am not using multi-site. I tried looking at the code but it is rather convoluted and very hard to follow.

    Any idea where I might could go to get some additional help?

    Try making a second installation of WP 3.0.1 with a new database and new files in a new directory. See if that one exhibits the same issue.

    James, that is essentially what I have done. My first attempt at 3.0.1 was by upgrading a site that was at 3.0.1. That’s when the above issues started. I rolled that site back to 2.9.2 and set up a new domain, new databases, new location to use as a sandbox for 3.0.1. Alas, same issues. As I said before I did redownload 3.0.1 then uploaded the wp-admin and wp-includes which made no difference. I am really stumped and can’t believe I am the only person in the world with this issue.

    Try adding define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false); to your wp-config.php file. Place it below the define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); line.

    James, looks like we are going in the right direction, while it did not fix the problem, now the left menu stops at Appearance, it no longer put out the Plugins menu entry. Do you have any more ideas?

    Try testing it in a different browser and on a different computer if you can.

    Tested on 3 different computers in IE8, Firefox and Opera, same thing on them all, puts out Appearance link then quits building anymore.

    Try increasing PHP’s maximum execution time. Add this line to your php.ini file and increase as necessary:

    max_execution_time = 600 ;

    Our max execution time is in excess of 6000 as we have a couple of long running scripts on other domains.

    By any chance, do you have any other server environments to test on, or just this one?

    Only 1 Linux server, our other one is windows. Do you know if anyone else has had this issue with 3.0.1?

    Honestly, this is the first that I’ve heard of it. Does everything else in the admin panel look fine? Is there any strange formatting going on?
