activating Achievements breaks wp-admin

  • mralexweber


    hoping for help from @djpaul on this one…

    basically, we were using an older version of Achievements (not that old, unfortunately I’m not sure exactly which version but it was fairly recent — originally installed around august/september). a co-worker noticed that the achievements widgets weren’t working, so he decided to try updating the Achievements plugin to the latest version. The update was successful, but on activation, we lose access to wp-admin.

    I can verify that Achievements is causing this problem, because if I remove the achievements folder from wp-content/plugins, we are again able to access the wp-admin dashboard.

    We also tried removing the achievements/ folder and installing a new copy of the plugin, with the same result (unable to access wp-admin dashboard after activation)

    Thanks for any help you can lend!

  • White screens of death are almost always PHP errors and as should such dump a message to the log file. I don’t know why it isn’t in this case.
