Blank blog pages and log-in screen (7 posts)

    Some time in the past two days or so, our blog at http://karenfrondesignlesson.com/ has stopped displaying anything. The admin log-in page doesn't show up either.

    I can access it via FTP, and have backed up my files, but am not sure where to turn to solve the problem. To my knowledge, no changes have been made lately, plug-in wise or theme-wise. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Thanks for the reply. I tried the last 2 ideas you had but both didn't make a difference... and I can't do the first two without logging in. I'm thinking maybe i should just reinstall wordpress completely?

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

    So if i just rename my current theme it automatically reverts to twentyten? I changed the current theme's folder name but no better. I don't understand why it's displaying the favicon but nothing else.

    Correct. You may need to try accessing wp-login.php once or twice to get this to kick in.
