Everything is Hunky-Dory

The phrase Hunky-Dory actually refers to a type of fish and denotes that the individual specimen is rather splendid, a big muscular fellah with lots of muscle and consequently really good eating because of lots of tender lean meat and low body fat.

The term was brought into the language at Billingsgate Fish market in London and it was through the development of a type of code between fishmongers and specialist fish food chefs. If a Fishmonger was there to find a particular type of fish on behalf of the restaurant owner or chef for a Friday fish extravaganza when a Roman Catholic family were celebrating the Christening of a male child expected to go into the priesthood.

The word HUNKY we know means a well built, good looking chap and DORY comes from the name of the John Dory fish.

Oh, and BTW, it's very strange and no I cannot fix it. The Dashboard had appeared quite nicely after I updated to 2.8-RC1. I also was able to update 2 plugins that were balking.

Now Dashboard is borked again. Press This remains transparent. And, it's actually gotten worse, because I get an error message when I edit an existing post and go to save the change:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 71 bytes) in /home/jcwinnie/public_html/wordpress/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 302

But, since you don't see it and I can't fix it, really, everything is fine, really, don't mind me

Hm, if I deactivate those 2 plugins: Contact Form 7 and Google XML Maps, then saving an edited post works again.

OTOH, the Dashboard remains borked with the following error message:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 1966080 bytes) in /home/jcwinnie/public_html/wordpress/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 5353

  • Cc Swedish Chef removed
  • Keywords bork bork bork removed
  • Milestone 2.8 deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

That error is due to the ammount of memory required by the plugins.

As a workaround, you may attempt to increase the PHP Memory limit by adding this to your config file:

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

Thank-you for the suggestion. The workaround seemed to work.
