After updating to 3.4, my admin bar is not pushing down the content in the admin area.

In this picture I have scrolled right up to the top of the page:

greedy admin bar

The problem is that notices get hidden under it.

I've tried network deactivating all plugins, but no luck!

I COULD just edit the core #adminmenu and #wpbody css to have a top margin of 28px, but I'd like to avoid doing that if possible.

Anybody come across this before?

    Not being picky with you, but maybe this Stack should have a huge link to this article: Troubleshooting WordPress 3.4 - Master List... – brasofilo Jul 4 '12 at 16:31
  • @brasofilo That's probably not a bad idea ;) I tried everything on that list of steps except manually upgrading, so of course that was the solution. Deleting the wp-admin folder and uploading a fresh copy of it solved my problem. I do not recall editing any code in that folder, but I may have done so a few months ago before I knew the trouble I could get into with editing back-end code. – Nathron Jul 4 '12 at 18:36

Some themes and plugins change the style of Admin Dashboard. Try changing the theme also once. It is more likely that a theme or plugin caused the issue rather than changes in WordPress back end code.

    Thanks for the tip! I tried that, as well as disabling all plug-ins, but it didn't work. I ended up just installing a fresh copy of my wp-admin folder and it solved the issue. I must have mucked around with code that I shouldn't have. – Nathron Jul 4 '12 at 18:39
