secret key causes white screen with version 2.6 (5 posts)

    Hi all,

    I upgraded to version 2.6.

    But when I add a secret key, I get a white screen when I look at my blog on any page. When I take the secret key out, the blog works again.

    The code I added is this:
    define('SECRET_KEY', 'UNIQUEKEYISHERE'); // Change this to a unique phrase.

    Is this the right code, or do I need all 3 types of keys?

    Thanks for any help!

    I am having the same problem so I removed the secret key. How do I fix this?

    Use the wp-config.php that comes with 2.6 and just enter your own info in the fields.

    It's most likely you need all 3 keys.

    Would disabling this functionality remove the WSOD? And are there any post dealing with the performance impact of removing these keys?
