**I have gone through the forums already and have seen similar problems as mine but no resolve to them. Please help me my knowledgeable WordPress friends!**
I have been using WP to run my website http://www.ourlifeinithaca.com
I have not made any changes to the website recently, outside of normal posting, but now I have three problems:
1) The search tab on the main page no longer works. When you type in anything and hit 'search' it simply refreshes the homepage.
2) I can no longer purge my Akismet spam! When I hit the Akismet tab under the "Manage" tab, it brings up a blank page. I've cleared cache and retried, but no luck.
3) Same problem as in 2), but with my Backup tab under "Manage."
I can see these programs under my wp-content/plugins folder, so they haven't been deleted, and both are activated...but I can't access either - all I get is that blank page. I'm pretty novice when it comes to programming, so I try to avoid making changes to the format/blog appearance...but these problems came out of nowhere. Please, please, help me out! Thanks very much, ourlifeinithaca.com
