This version of WordPress hasn't really given me any issues except this one:
I can't edit my themes or plugins since upgrading to 2.8. I get this error: Fatal error: Call to undefined function token_get_all() in /home/kitsune/foxhack/wp-admin/includes/misc.php on line 273 I've tried going to wp-admin/update-core.php and force WordPress to reinstall itself, and the error still happens. I did a straight upgrade from 2.7.1 to 2.8.
It turns out that WordPress is expecting the tokenizer be present, and it isn't compiled in my host's server. I can't ask them to recompile PHP, because they have dozens of other websites hosted and none of them need this.
What was the point of adding it? I only see it be used in the theme and plugin editors. I don't understand why this feature is required, when it isn't even mentioned in the documentation.
Please make this feature optional. :(
