    Hi Dimas,

    I just noticed with the latest version of WooCommerce, Sidekick causes the Orders page to not display any orders. The page displays how many pages of orders there are, but not the orders themselves. Possibly this is to do with the collapse sub-pages function? Just thought I’d let you know.

    Hi Dimas, no, I’m on 0.7 and it doesn’t give me the option to update.

    Hi Dimas, On the latest version of WordPress (4.0.1) the Sidekick plugin is causing no Pages/Posts to be displayed in the control panel – the posts/pages list page shows the correct number of posts/pages at the top, but nothing displays.

    Inspecting the page I see this error: “Uncaught TypeError: undefined is not a function” in load-scripts.php . When I deactivate Sidekick I see all the posts/pages correctly again.

    Thanks for your help!

    … and sorry should have said, I am on version 0.7.2 of Sidekick. Thanks! M
