WordPress 3.2 Lost Admin Menu Fix Found

Posted on July 05, 2011 by Blog Design Journal

Here’s a fix for the WordPress 3.2 admin menu disappearing. It seems to be a case of plugin incompatibility in many cases. I Googled and, for once, found good info on the WordPress.org site itself.

But you don’t need to read all that. Here is the relevant suggestion:

Go to www. your blog address here.com/wp-admin/plugins.php (plugins management page) then disable plugins which interfere with layouts of the wordpress.

Thank you, vinkumar751! You are a star!

I went to the page vinkumar specified, and it worked. There was my plugins list.

I deactivated almost all of the plugins, because I don’t know which ones are incompatible with the upgrade. I will add them back a few at a time till I find the culprit.

When a plugin is no longer compatible, you may have to replace it with a different plugin. But often, if you simply deactivate it and wait a few days, the plugin developer updates the plugin and you can reactivate it. (You’ll be notified on the WordPress Updates page (which you can now access, because the left menu is back).

I hope this helps. If you still have the problem, consider that the theme could be incompatible. You can try installing and activating the new 2011 theme, using the instructions above but substituting themes.php for plugins.php.

If that doesn’t work either, I suggest going to the link above and reading through the thread for other suggestions.

Again, if you have any new info, please leave a comment and share it with the rest of us. Thanks.
