I hadn’t intended to change the site theme but I had no choice. The previous theme is incompatible with the new version of WordPress 3.5. I was unable to add media and some other functions were also disabled A search of the WordPress forums suggested turning off all the plugins etc but this didn’t help either.
One post suggested trying one of the default themes. I opted for 2011. Problem solved. Added some custom headers and the usual gang of plugins and voila I’m back in business..
I love the Jetpack gallery plugin and I have now added another page called Photos. now for shortcodes…….
