Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress Dashboard Problem

  • My dashboard is not loading properly. I’m able to work with it to an extent but can’t get to the visual editor or post images. Here’s a screenshot:

    This is not a local computer or browser issue because my other WP sites are fine. It’s specific to

    I’ve been told it may be a CSS issue and I may need to reinstall a fresh copy of WordPress. I’ve downloaded the entire site and backed up my SQL database.

    Do I now just download WordPress 2.9.1 and upload to my server? Will I risk overwriting the theme folder and contents?

    Thanks for any advice.

  • Have you tried:

    – 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-related problems?

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin? Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress?

    And no – as long as you stay clear of the wp-content folder – you shouldn’t overwrite any of your theme or plugin files.

    I deactivated all plugins but it didn’t resolve the problem.

    Then I “reinstalled automatically” WordPress even though I had the latest version. It completed successfully but showed this message:

    Warning: gzuncompress(): data error in /home/content/o/f/s/ofsschone/html/wp-includes/http.php on line 1825

    When I look at that file I see this from line 1818-1837 (1825 is blank):

    function decompress( $compressed, $length = null ) {
    $decompressed = WP_Http_Encoding::compatible_gzinflate( $compressed );

    if ( false !== $decompressed )
    return $decompressed;

    $decompressed = gzuncompress( $compressed );

    if ( false !== $decompressed )
    return $decompressed;

    if ( function_exists(‘gzdecode’) ) {
    $decompressed = gzdecode( $compressed );

    if ( false !== $decompressed )
    return $decompressed;

    return $compressed;

    Not sure if this is even the cause of my problem. Should I still reset plugins even though I was able to deactivate all through the dashboard?
