[resolved] Installed 3.8.1 can't add pages or access widgets (7 posts)

    Installed 3.8.1 the other day and first it wiped out my theme CSS and I had to uninstall the theme and reinstall. Today I went to add a new page to the site and I get an internal server error. Same happens when I try to access widgets. Coincidence? Have never had this happen before with any sites that I have built with WordPress?

    What theme are you using? Where did you download it from?

    Please post in http://wordpress.org/support/theme/virtue

    In the meantime, try:

    - 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 default 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 all files & folders - except the wp-content folder and wp-config.php & root .htaccess files - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    I don't think it is a theme problem. I switched themes 3 different times and it acts the same way.

    There is no magic bullet in these situations. This is just the start of basic troubleshooting and is a process of elimination deliberately designed to locate the root cause as quickly as possible by first removing the most obvious and common culprits via a series of (often) temporary steps.

    Your theme & plugin settings are saved in your database and should be retained for future use.
