WordPress Dashboard’s All Messed Up  

Anyone else out there have the problem where your WordPress Dashboard doesn’t appear to be using and CSS and it just plain looks funky? I did. I just fixed it today (thank goodness).

Here’s what I did.

  1. Upgrade to the latest version of WordPress
  2. Upgrade all of your Plugin that can be upgraded
  3. I also found some weird “Hello Dolly” plugin that I deleted. (not sure that did anything but hey, stuff works now)
  4. Also, if you’re using IE8I had to click “Compatibility View” to get the post-new.php page to render.

Hope that helps! Good luck all!

UPDATE: This has not resolved all the issues on all of my WP sites.  I’m still getting this error:

The interesting thing is that I’m getting this error on admin panels that work and those that don’t so I can’t say for certain if this is actually the cause of the problem.


Ok. So now I’m deleting the wp-admin and wp-includes folders. I have downloaded a fresh version of WordPress and am in the process of re-uploading those folders. Fingers Crossed.
