sadly, when we upgraded sfartistwatch.com to the newest version of mediawiki, it broke. It looks ok at first, aside from the fact that the reference to the logo we had was destroyed in the upgrade, but then if you log in, the formatting gets messed up and the tabs and sidebar go away. We still haven't figured that one out.

This sort of thing is not encouraging so far as upgrading regularly goes.

Argh! That is very discouraging! Please email me at sumanah at wikimedia dot org with a description of what happened -- what the old version was, what operating system and database and version of PHP and server you are using, whether you had a custom skin, etc. -- and a list of the problems you're facing. I'll get it to the mediawiki-l list https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/mediawiki-l and get you some help, and maybe we can file appropriate bug reports and make things better.
