    After I log into wp-admin, I try to go into Themes or any other link within the page. The page tries to load and remains on the home page...even trying to click the link for editing my profile, it remains at the home page of my website. Help please...
    Thank you,

    Hey Miguel,

    I've definatlly been where you have, Does the page not load at all? Can you show a screen shot, Generally this is due to permission issues,

    A great article for this is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chmod

    Or http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions

    The general permission for the wordpress theme folder is 666

    Thanks and hope this helps

    Thanks "babblebase" not sure if a screen shot will help. It's basically my wordpress home page (it completes loading) but, it doesn't change if I click the links to edit my profile, change theme settings...nothing happens. I went to try to change the permsissions of the theme folder in the FTP section but, I am not clear on which folder or file you suggest I change permissions to be able to have the admin home page of my wordpress page comeback to life...any suggestions to get this page going is very appreciated. Thank you!!

    Miguel,

    Sometimes it helps with certain errors, But no worries we should be able to get you working.

    The THEMES folders- WP-Content/Themes is where the THEME files are located and that appears to be the problem from what you described.

    Below is what Automattic recommeds the permissions to be

    File Permissions
    Some neat features of WordPress come from allowing various files to be writable by the web server. However, allowing write access to your files is potentially dangerous, particularly in a shared hosting environment.

    It is best to lock down your file permissions as much as possible and to loosen those restrictions on the occasions that you need to allow write access, or to create specific folders with less restrictions for the purpose of doing things like uploading files.

    Here is one possible permission scheme.

    All files should be owned by your user account, and should be writable by you. Any file that needs write access from WordPress should be group-owned by the user account used by the web server.

    /
    The root WordPress directory: all files should be writable only by your user account, except .htaccess if you want WordPress to automatically generate rewrite rules for you.
    /wp-admin/
    The WordPress administration area: all files should be writable only by your user account.
    /wp-includes/
    The bulk of WordPress application logic: all files should be writable only by your user account.
    /wp-content/
    User-supplied content: intended to be completely writable by all users (owner/user, group, and public).
    Within /wp-content/ you will find:

    /wp-content/themes/
    Theme files. If you want to use the built-in theme editor, all files need to be group writable. If you do not want to use the built-in theme editor, all files can be writable only by your user account.
    /wp-content/plugins/
    Plugin files: all files should be writable only by your user account.
    Other directories that may be present with /wp-content/ should be documented by whichever plugin or theme requires them. Permissions may vary.

    Ted,
    I still don't know what I am doing wrong. I gave "write" permissions to the parent themes folder and nothing happens. I still click on the "Themes" link and the home page remains static...I appreciate your help, thanks!!

    Reupload the THEMES folder from the latest WordPress release, It could be a corrupted set of files.

    And just to confirm you are getting this from the admin panal, Not the domain level. E.G http://www.domain.com
