Need WordPress experts! (upgrade issues)

I’ve already posted at the WordPress support forums, but if anyone here is familiar with it, please let me know…

Upgraded from 2.3 to 2.6 following the codex directions, including the database upgrade.

Now when viewing the blog, the text of the post no longer shows up. It’s in the database (if I go to edit a post everything is still in there), but it doesn’t display on the page.

Each entry looks something like this:

There should be text in between the byline and the “posted in” line, but there isn’t.

View Source on the page shows that the <div id=“entry”> is empty, see below. What’s causing this? I’m using a custom theme, but would that make the “entry” div completely empty?

<div class="post">
	 <h3 class="storytitle" id="post-164"><a href="" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: sigh">sigh</a></h3>

	 <small>Kat <strong>::</strong> 11:07 pm</small>

	<div class="entry">


	<div class="meta"><p>Posted in <a href="" title="View all posts in love | sexuality" rel="category tag">love | sexuality</a>, <a href="" title="View all posts in observations | miscellany" rel="category tag">observations | miscellany</a>, <a href="" title="View all posts in rage | pain | defeat" rel="category tag">rage | pain | defeat</a>, <a href="" title="View all posts in spirituality | ponderings" rel="category tag">spirituality | ponderings</a> <strong>|</strong> <a href="" title="Edit post">Edit</a><strong>|</strong>  <a href="" title="Comment on sigh">No Comments »</a> </p><br /></div>

Any help would be appreciated, otherwise I don’t know what else to do besides roll back to the old version. :frowning:

Did you make a backup of the site/database as they suggest? It might be easier to go back to that and start over, rather than research this…

Yes, I have a backup and could roll back if I needed to.

I guess I didn’t see that rolling back and trying again would do much, since I have no idea what’s wrong. I’d do it the same way, since I haven’t a clue what to do differently.

I mean, I could roll back to 2.3 and leave it there, but the farther along we get the less ideal and secure that’s going to be.

Okay, I found it. It was a conflict with an the old Markdown syntax plugin. Had to go hunting for a new one. All better now.

Cool. It wasn’t that You would be rolling back, it’s that, with the data, you could install the latest version in a clear directory and import the content (and plugins) to the new location.

But it looks like that’s unnecessary now. :slight_smile:
