    Thanks for the suggestion, Ron.

    I tried restarting my browser and thought (hoped) the page looked a little more normal. It seemed like I was able to move from place to place faster, but I’m not able to add a title or tags or insert a photo into the blog.

    I’m open to trying anything else. Thanks!

    PS: I was able to post and this time the title went through, but I still couldn’t insert a picture. At least some progress.

    Hey, my wordpress site is totally pooched (kirkwoodacademy.com). I get a header that says “4D dialog” and two boxes. One that says “A boolean argument was expected” and “if (<>prefWEB) `on web connection” and that’s it.

    Today I downloaded a copy of wordpress from the website to upload to my hosting server. I keep getting an error that reads: “Warning: require_once(/home/content/s/t/o/stockpick/html/wp-admin/includes/user.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/s/t/o/stockpick/html/wp-admin/includes/admin.php on line 46

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/content/s/t/o/stockpick/html/wp-admin/includes/user.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php’) in /home/content/s/t/o/stockpick/html/wp-admin/includes/admin.php on line 46″

    When I checked that line of code it was for verification of the user.php file. I then checked the user.php file and found this:

    */
    function add_user() {
    if ( func_num_args() ) { // The hackiest hack that ever did hack
    global $wp_roles;
    $user_id = (int) func_get_arg( 0 );

    Does anyone seen this or know what the correct wp-admin/includes/user.php file should be?

    I’m unable to register for the forums on wordpress.org. Is this related to the outage?

    #506201

    My theme changed, widgets are gone, no Twitter, Flickr, Recent Comments links. Also, no help support. What happened and how can I restore my previous theme and settings?

    Our blog heading and sidebars have changed or disappeared. No comments are showing on the sidebar. No log in available on the sidebar. Avatars changed to something I don’t recognize. Widgets are spinning and nothing happening. A calendar appeared on the sidebar and we had no calendar.

    Please have support post an update as this must be the problem at their end.
    I got to the blog using an admin string where we left notes this morning. Otherwise I couldn’t log in.

    Sounds like bridgetted has the same problems I just noted above. I’ve been trying to get some support help as I don’t have time and/or abililty to restore everything I lost. I found an entry from Support saying they will not be available until 8-16-10 but will make posts! What is going on???

    Please support, let us know if we can get some help as there is no response now. Not all of us set up our blogs on our own or have the ability to do.

    Thanks.

    My uh…wordpress toolbar thing keeps changing. Are you working on the system or is it just me?

    PLEASE HELP! All widgets on my sidebar are gone. It has been replaced with a “tags” widget. ALso, my theme looks suspiciously different from the one I had last time I checked. Not sure if this is related to the outage, but everything is messed up. I hope my site can be restored soon, the address is: http://www.valuehuntr.com

    All my widgets and links are gone. Is it to do with the outage? Will everything go back to normal or do I need to load them again? Thanks

    ok, it’s not so bad. Lost widgets should be under “inactive widgets” under the “Widgets” menu selection. It’s just that the transition was made without letting bloggers know.

    #506214

    As of right now, the nav bar won’t let me edit my posts and pages. I have to go in the dashboard to find the post and page to edit it there. Before we could edit right from the main page when the post or page is in permalink.

    I’m having the same problems as here — widgets gone gone gone. Temporary?

    #506216

    Forget about my problem. It’s been solved.

    About missing widgets, check at the bottom area where all widgets in your dashboard are. They usually drop down to there when anything weird happens.

    ghalf, edit the page with the comment box (Admin -> Pages -> edit the page with the comment box). Under the “Discussion” box, uncheck “allow comments”.

    If you’re still having problems, please start a new thread on these forums. This one is starting to get confusing with all the different problems people are posting.

    somegirlwithathought, I was able to make a test change to one of your posts.

    I agree that the strikethrough doesn’t work. That one’s new to me. For now, you can get around this by switching to the “HTML” view when editing a post and typing:

    <del>text you want to strikethrough</del>

    Annoying, I know.
