[resolved] Blog displays title and post title but not post content (7 posts)

    It's been three days after I upgraded to WP 2.8.5 and just last night, my blog started to act weird.

    It displays the Blog's title and post title but no content.

    I did a fresh install of WP this morning and thought everything was ok. But just a few hours ago, the same problem occurred again.

    Please help!

    Activate all plugins, switch to the WordPress Default theme...do you see post content there?

    I've isolated the plugin that has caused this problem:

    Secure and Accessible PHP Contact Form by Mike Cherim and Mike Jolley

    The strange is, I've been using this plugin for years and it's only now that it has caused a problem like this.

    Oh no! I am using the same contact form and was just about to upgrade to 2.8.5 - Good that you found that out. I will have to look for another contact form (Secure and Accessible worked great...)

    I've checked the server error logs and found this Fatal PHP Error message:

    [27-Oct-2009 18:01:04] PHP Fatal error: Cannot access empty property in /home/jrocasco/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 431

    I've also contacted the plugin author about this, hopefully a fix will come out soon.

    But the bottom line is, this is a compatibility issue, correct?

    Found a fix!

    It turns out that an empty or null entry in the wp_options table gets mysteriously created. More info here

    Deleting the empty entry fixes this problem, but the root cause, how that entry was created in the first place remains a mystery.

    It's recommended that the wp_options table be cleaned up after a while, because installing and removing plugins add up to the junk entries in the database. Check out this post by ShoalinTiger for more info.
