WordPress 3.5 Problems - Webistes Not Working + More (5 posts)

    I've just updated two of my three websites to WordPress 3.5 and have encountered a number of problems. I've tried the troubleshooting options in the threads, and I have to preface my complaint by saying I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to coding, so please be patient and bear with me when it comes to finding a plausible solution. I must also admit that I did the basic troubleshooting of deleting all plugins, clearing cookies and my cache, however I'm a little confused by the rest.


    Problems I'm having:
    -Add media button doesn't work. Nothing happens when I push it.
    -Dashboard taking a very long time to load.
    -Dashboard not loading at all.
    -Website not loading at all.
    -Website only partially loading.
    -Tags not working. When adding a tag, it reloads the entire page as if to save the draft

    I am receiving this error on Downtown Saints:

    Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpdb::prepare(), called in /home/content/50/9742250/html/wp-content/themes/Compra/includes/meta-boxes.php on line 40 and defined in /home/content/50/9742250/html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 990

    While Young Hip Scene site won't load at all. If someone can help I'd really appreciate it. I'll try to follow instructions as much as I can.

  3. Also please read this with regards to the prepare() problem.

    I've studied that post, and it didn't seem to help my problem.


    Thanks for the link. It was really helpful, and I did check in out in an attempt to solve the issue, but I have to admit I was a bit confused. I was able to get into my wp-config.php and find the line that was causing the error, but couldn't figure out how to rectify the problem.

    It currently looks like this:

    $product_options = $wpdb->get_var($wpdb->prepare("SELECT options_1 FROM $table_name WHERE item_number = '$item_number';"));

    I did send the error over to the theme developer to see if they would have a speedy correction, but until then the error is both on my website and 'add new post' page.

  5. Here's the fixed line for that particular code:

    $product_options = $wpdb->get_var($wpdb->prepare("SELECT options_1 FROM $table_name WHERE item_number = %s;", $item_number));

    That will remove the warning and eliminate the potential security issue.
