Upgrade Broken Certain Page Type

My web host has recently upgraded me from 2.4 to 3.0 at my request.

It took them a bit of work and manual manipulation to make it work, but it seems to be displaying ok now.

There is a problem in the CMS though. If I click on one type of page, it will not load. It behaves as if it's going to load, but then the page I was previously on stays loaded. Other pages seem to load ok.

I'm trying to find a log message that will indicate what's going wrong.

I have the following in my _config.php.


But loading the page in the CMS does not add anything to my /mysite/tmp/errors.log file.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to help me troubleshoot?

Thanks in advance.

I found a report that had a link to one of the problematic pages, and when I tried to use that link it displayed the error message instead of swallowing it.

FYI in case it's useful to anyone, the problem was using a deprecated:
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new DropDownField('....
Changed to the following and I'm up and going:
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Main', new DropDownField('....
