How Do I Make A New Page? (12 posts)

    I go to "Pages">"Add New".

    I type in my title.

    But then, I can't get my cursor into the box where I'm supposed to type the text. How am I supposed to type the text of my page?

    first, try:

    -switching to the unedited default theme (twentyeleven) for a moment by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes. The idea is to force WordPress to fall back to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific issue.

    Thanks, but I am already using the default theme.

    try:

    -deactivating ALL plugins temporarily to narrow down the problem. If the problem goes away, activate them individually (one-by-one) to find the problematic plugin.

    -if that does not resolve the issue, you may try increasing memory available for php.

    OK, deactivating plugins didn't work and I don't understand the instructions for increasing memory.

    It says to change define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '32M'); to define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M'); or define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '96M');

    Where do I find the code it is talking about?

    your theme's functions.php file

    Where is that? If I click on "themes", I don't see "functions.php"

    I see the theme with the options "widgets, menus, theme options, background, header".

    you said you are using Twenty Eleven theme. So, look in there:

    /wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/functions.php

    OK, I found functions.php in the themes editor. There is a lot of code in it. However, when I do a search using the "find" feature, I don't find that line of code.

    I searched for "define" and only found places where it said "define(header)". I searched for "memory" & came up empty. I also searched for the entire line "define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');" and came up empty.

    I searched for "memory" & came up empty.

    If you don't find it, then try adding as instructed in the codex.

    you can also ask your hosting provider if there is a limit on memory.

    Well, nothing was working. So I called my host, Hostgator.

    It turned out to be an issue with the browser. I was using Firefox 12.0.
    When I tried IE, I was able to type in the page editor.

    Thanks for all your help.
