    for two days all of the backend admin pages not are loading - they are completely blank.
    The frontend is still there and I can log into the backend but every page is blank. There has been no WP updates recently and this just a happened out of the blue.
    What gives? Other people seem to be having this problem but no one has addressed it yet from what I can see.

    what is also weird is that the image link for the stats ( the far right button ) is broken.
    This happened at the same time as the backend disappearance

    Also I have emptied the cache and tried three different browsers - there is nothing on any of the pages - anyone?

    Try:
    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Thanks Esmi - So that theme name is "Twenty Eleven" - just caps on the first letters?

    Yes - but you don't need to know the name. Just rename your current theme's folder to anything you like. add -old to its folder name if you want. WordPress will then do the rest.

    Hmmm - it didn't really like that - now both are blank so I had to switch it back - it did not look like anything automatically switched. I guess restting the plugins is next then?

    actually #2 won't work as I can't see my admin pages...I guess it's number three then. Could this be a problem with my hosting though ? This blog was an auto-install on dreamhost and it updates automatically - could it be them breaking stuff?

    #1 works if you have an unmodified copy of the Twenty Eleven theme in wp-content/themes. If you do not have a twentyeleven folder in wp-content/themes or you modified that theme, then you need to upload a fresh copy.

    #2 also does not need access to your admin area. Please see the link I gave above.

    Hello again - I have upload a fresh twentyten and renamed the plugins folder and both have come up empty (literally) - I guess it's on to #3?

    #3 also does not work - still blank pages. I did a fresh manual restall of everything.
    What is next?
