Can't access WP-Admin - blank white screen (20 posts)

    Hello World. I sold a website to a client of mine, and I'm trying to get into his WP-Admin for the site to change a few things. But when I go to the site, all I get is a blank white screen. The login box doesn't show up at all. I don't even get an error message. The site is hosted on Host Excellence (my client chose this). Everything worked fine for my HostGator clients. Not sure if this is the host or not. Please help - he needs to get into the WP-Admin.

    Could delete and reupload all WordPress files.

    If that doesn't work disable all plugins--if necessary read How to deactivate all plugins when not able to access the administrative menus?

    Have you modified your functions.php file at all? I had the same problem with the 'dreaded white screen' when creating new posts and after logging out. My problem lay with the following code which limits the number of words displayed in excerpts.

    <?php
    function string_limit_words($string, $word_limit)
    {
      $words = explode(' ', $string, ($word_limit + 1));
      if(count($words) > $word_limit)
      array_pop($words);
      return implode(' ', $words);
    }
    ?>

    If anyone has used the same code and is encountering a white screen, removing it from functions.php should get your admin back.

    Any suggestions welcomed for incorporating this code safely or other methods of limiting excerpts.

    I am having a similar problem. I recently upgraded and added a few plugins. Then I started getting this error at the top of every page:

    Warning: main(/home/sites/citruslabel.com/public_html/wp-content/plugins/entrecard-admanager/) [function.main]: failed to open stream: Success in /home/sites/citruslabel.com/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 473

    But unlike the rest of you clever guys I don't have a clue about fixing it. I cannot access the admin page to make any changes. And I don't understand what you guys mean by backing up etc as I do not have anything to do with wordpress on my hard drive....

    Can anyone help... please!

    I cannot even logon to my dashboard anymore. When I do I get to a blank page with this on it:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function add_meta_box() in /home/content/30/4445630/html/wp-content/plugins/headspace2/headspace.php on line 513

    Hi,

    Yes..this error message shows that there is an issue with headspace2 plugin so disable that plugin and have a check to login into wordpress admin area..

    If necessary, rename theme folder in wp-content/themes to cause WordPress Default theme to be place into service

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    i'm facing the same issue.....when i try to login to wp-admin, it shows blank page. After spending hours on Google, trying to find a solution, i'm still not able to solve this problem. I have removed the extra last line from the config file, functions.php and many more in a hope that the admin login page may turn up, Also, tried disabling plugins as well as themes, but i still see BLANK WHITE PAGE with nothing in the page source...

    Any kind of help will be highly appreciated.

    @phoenicks: Did you try re-naming the plugins folder via FTP as suggested above?

    I had the same problem - blank white wp-admin page, but a normally working site.

    Fix: Make sure functions.php has all of its functions within one set of php tags. I had added some sidebar functions and put them in their own <?php ... ?> tags, so there were two sets. Put them together, and wp-admin works just fine.

    Hi,

    My problem was a blank white screen for both admin and the site. The solution was to remove and replace plugins one by one via FTP until I isolated the offending plugin, which turned out to be a twitter module (02tweet).

    I can't say what happened to make the plugin corrupt (or whatever), but trashing the damn thing solved the problem.

    My issue was the blank white screen after I logged in. I put the plugins back in one by one. As soon as I put in the next-gen gallery plugin then I have the blank white screen. I'd really like to have that plugin. Any ideas on where I can go from here? Thanks!

    I just wanted to chime in here. Not all Admin area blank pages are caused by bad plugins. I experienced the blank wall after upgrading from 2.5 and then trying to log into /wp-admin/

    My plugins were fine, but I had modified my custom theme's functions.php file to register a new side bar. Per clickit's post (4ish) I had an extra set of <?php ?> tags that caused my admin area to crash.

    Thanks WP and all the forum users who post here.

    @leah....did you try the support forum for the gallery plugin?
