Hi,

We upgraded our site to 1.7.0.2 from v1.6.2 and there were some issues which we managed to fix most of, except one; being able to browse Manage Products and Manage Categories in the Admin. There’s nothing at all on the net about this error yet…

In the exception.log in var/log we see the following error which looks like its related to this problem:

exception 'Mage_Core_Exception' with message 'Invalid block type: Mage_Blog_Block_Post_Recent' in /home/******/public_html/app/Mage.php:594

#13 /home/******/public_html/index.php(87): Mage::run('', 'store')

Anyone got any ideas how to fix this? Can’t find any posts about this on the net with Mage_Blog_Block_Post_Recent in them...? We don’t even use a blog extension on our site so im not sure whats going on, does Magento v1.7.0.2 have a builtin blog now?

I remember seeing an error with one of the upgrade file, something like upgrade-1.6.2-to-1.6.3.php failing when i upgraded originally.

So i re-installed the AdminHtml and the other Admin package on the Magento Connect Manager and the products and categories are showing again…

So, Run the upgrade again if you see this error! smile
