    Just updated to 3.o and installed F2 theme. But any link for New Posts loads a blank page. I cant add new posts! Help.
    Tried an alternate theme, did not help
    Any suggestions please

  2. Turn off all your plugins.

    Thanks. But no.
    I have tried turning all plugins off and it has not helped. I seem to load
    wp-admin/post-new.php page but nothing there. Tried clicking to see if it was white on white but no looks to be missing.

  4. Okay. Delete the wp-admin and wp-includes folder and reupload from a FRESH copy of WP 3.0's zip.

    I have same problem. I tried uploaded new fresh copy of WP. Nothing is helping.

    And btw. How can I deactive my plugin? When I go to /wp-admin page its blank there... even my main page of blog is clean.

    edit: never mind. I deleted the plugins from FTP, and its working... and now uploading one and one plugin to see wich one crash that.

  6. The other way is to rename the plugins folder to plugins-old :)

    I have deleted and replaced wp-admin and wp-includes
    Still no joy. I also note that neither new posts nor new pages are available, I have admin priviliges.

    I really appreciate yr help. What can Itry next?
    Thanks

  8. You can get into the wp-admin side right?

    Reset permalinks to 'default' (ugly) permalinks.

    Yes I am in admin and everything else seems to be ok

    Just set permalinks to default - didnt help, so I have set them back to date and name

    Any other ideas?

  10. This is ONLY happening on the backend, correct? The front-end of your site is fine?

    yes, from a visitor pov noone will know, except i cant add new content

  12. Your going to domain.com/wp-admin/edit.php right?

    This is just ... weird. The only time I've seen this is with a plugin conflict or a bad upgrade.

    I can get to edit.php and work there it is wp-admin/post-new.php that is a blank page.
    I just tried a login as a different administrator, same problem

    I thought it might be a permissions issue, but just updated a plugin ok

    just dont know what to do next. Doing a complete reinstall would be a big job wouldnt it?

    I believe this is the same problem I'm having, posted separately. I have tried everything above except the permalink switch -- now have tried that, and still no visual editor for either posts or pages.

  15. Doing a complete reinstall would be a big job wouldnt it?

    Not really ...

    If you deleted everything EXCEPT for /wp-content/ (the whole folder) and your wp-config.php and .htaccess files, you could just download a fresh copy of 3.0 from this site and copy those files up manually.

    A pain, yes, but not really too hard.

    Are your plugins all still turned off? Have you tried the default (2010) theme? There may be some feature of your theme causing bork.

    ok I guess I ll have to try that. I'll back up everything first.
    I tried the 2010 default theme, but did not help.
    While I am backing up, and before installing, could this be a problem with creating new docs? Or should the dialog appear anyway?

    Sorry, I'm not sure I understand what you're asking.

    I am having the same issue.

    I have increased memory in wp-config, disabled all plugins, switched to default theme, replaced wp-includes and wp-admin. I am getting no where. Do we have any other suggestions? This upgrade has really put me in a bind.

    Thanks

    Still struggling too
    I have now manually removed all files except
    .htaccess, wp-config.php and wp-content (I even removed the plugin folder and replaced that)

    Nothing has changed, still get a blank page when I try to create a new post or a new page.

    The possible problems are getting shorter. I tried to create a new user, but cant do that with same email address. Is there a way around that?

    Any other ideas? Please help someone this is killing me!

    Just noticed on another thread that this issue seems to affect only Earthlink hosted blogs.

    I am also using earthlink to host.

    I am still wondering if there is a permissions problem somewhere - any ideas?

    Just had this from earthlink
    "It seems that the latest version of WordPress has some incompatibility issues with our server."
    They suggest going back to 2.9.2

  22. "It seems that the latest version of WordPress has some incompatibility issues with our server."

    PHP, I'll bet :/

    There is another thread running for this issue: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/414105?replies=7#post-1572310

    I'll post this here as well, if you know what 3.0 requires in terms of PHP support, please let us know if one of these needs to be activated and we can all bug Earthlink like crazy: http://www.maximludwig.com/phpinfo.php

    Thanks!

  24. Honestly, it's just PHP 4.3 (see http://wordpress.org/about/requirements/ for the requirements). PHP 5 is better, in general, but really, this sounds like they have permissions on PHP set up in some funky way, and they're not apparently willing to debug.

    If this was a COMMON issue, more people than just Earthlink users would be running into it.

    I'd ask Earthlink if there's anything special you need to do to run PHP 5, and if they have an intention of looking into why THEIR install doesn't like WP 3.0 when most every other host does.

    And if they don't want to help you, take your money away from them.

    Having same issue here.

    In my case it only occurs after activating a child theme of Twentyten. Every "Publish", "Save changes" results in a blank screen. The child theme is dead simple, so I don't quite understand how it could cause this issue.

    • PHP version is 5.2.5
    • Memory limit is set to 64MB

    Site is part of a WP 3.0 MU setup, I'm now checking of one of the 'network' plugins could cause this issue.

  26. wpcubus - Are you also on Earthlink?

    I just spoke to Earthlink tech support. They told me they are putting their "engineers" on it. It will take 48-72 hours just to get an answer back. I'm switching hosts. Earthlink is over-priced anyway. Found a great deal here: http://www.hostgator.com/resellers.shtml

    Earthlink just fixed the problem for me. They have also given me a link to the fix for others. they wrote

    "After working with WordPress, a bug in the 3.0 release was discovered which prevented it from working properly with PHP 5.0. A minor code modification was made to correct this, which could be found here:

    http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/15359 <http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/15359> "

    There will be a change in the next version of wordprss to avoid the problem. Thanks everyone :-)

    It'd be nice if they also mentioned your site was running on a buggy, five-year-old version of PHP 5, but hey, you pick your battles. :-)
