    WordPress might be amazing, but it seems that 2.8 does not live up to its hype. It is giving errors all around and I’m only getting blank pages.

    Without giving it much thought I upgraded from latest 2.7. to 2.8 and have a disaster. At first the site came up looking like a column of links down the left hand side.
    After several attempts I got the design web site. Went into Site Admin and have a dashboard which is a series of links down the left hand side, which are those I would have if I had the standard dashboard screen. Most of them don’t work and those that do just take me to a basic text location. The whole thing is a disaster. I am Europe and not home in Australia. I want to get back to 2.7.? but I didn’t back up anything.
    It is so stupid putting out something as bad as this – refer to comments pouring in on various forums – and it has been released to cater for someones ego rather than the users. Someones ego must by no have taken a battering and his reputation in tatters. You have stuffed my site.
    If anyone can give me an easy fix, that would be good. If not I’m finished with WordPress and looking elsewhere as I don’t have the time for this sort of rubbish release.
    Just in case you want to know, i am angry.

      Sorry to hear you’ve experienced a problem. Due to the huge number of different factors involved with a self-installations of WordPress (from plugins to third-party themes, to hosting), we highly recommend backing up your blog before upgrading. If you continue to have problems, I’d recommend submitting them to the friendly folks at the WordPress.org support forums who might be able to walk you through resolving your issue.

    Web developers’ ability to easily customize and extend WordPress makes it one of the most popular and powerful publishing platform. However every time a new WordPress version is released, developer’s should look at their customized solutions and accommodate changes.

    W3Avenue has compiled a list of resources for WordPress developers that will help them quickly upgrade their themes or plugins to accommodate latest features.

    WordPress may be the bet blog software around, but is has a lot to learn when it comes to both installation and upgrade issues.

    You shouldn’t have to basically destroy and rebuild your site just to upgrade it. Unless you’re basically a coder or can afford a coder, don’t bother running WordPress.

      If you’re a WordPress.com user, you’ll always be running the latest version of WordPress, with some extra customization – we don’t use version numbers for the .com service, but because it’s taken care of for you, there’s no need to do your own upgrades.
