Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

I had no problem with upgrading from 2.7.1 to 2.8.4 on sites where I had Atahualpa 3.4.2 already installed. On my main newspaper site, where I have a very customized version of Atahualpa 3.2 installed, I upgraded to WP 2.8.4, and found out the site had been hacked back in July, and it showed up after the upgrade.

Anyway, after a very expensive fix, the site is working, but the dashboard is not. Not well, anyway.

We can't add tags to posts. We can't use screen options to remove features, and we can't move the panes around.

I've tried activating the default theme, and it didn't help. On advice from the WP support forum, I renamed the plugins folder. No change.

I don't know what else to try. Anybody else have this problem?

OK, I solved it. I deactivated all plugins (I have 50 active ones), then reactivated one at a time, checking each time to see if the dashboard screen options were working. Wouldn't you know it? It was the next-to-last one, WP Events Calendar, that was causing the problem. I deleted that one (I was just testing it anyway), and now everything is working again, including a fantastic plugin that lets you make a really nice slideshow with pretty fade effects in a sidebar. I use it for ads: sponsors slideshow plugin.

The site is finally working well. I'm afraid to switch to the newest Atahualpa now!
