I followed the upgrade instructions and ran /wp-admin/upgrade.php and decided to check the site. Found out that the pages were throwing up 404 errors.
Thought it to be a normal problem with the Permalinks, but regenerating them didn’t solve any issue. So I next decided to edit and resave all the pages, only to discover that the upgrade had “eaten up” all the pages.
It was kinda shocking. The user in me started panicing, while the developer in me said it was just a stupid glitch. Dug into the backup and started searching for the pages contents. Thankfully I got only seven pages out here and so recreated all of the them manually by copying the code from the backup and editing as necessary.
As of now the pages are back in order so no complains there.
I have one major problem with this version of WordPress.
admin_footer for some reason doesn’t work in
post-new.php, though it does work in
As a result my favorite image plugin doesn’t work smoothly even though I’ve got the latest version.
Any WP Developers out there reading this post?
