Suddenly a blank page when trying to create new post (3 posts)

    Just updated and now when I go to create a new post all I get is a blank screen instead of the fields to fill everything in like before... puzzled! Anyone else finding this?

    A blank page (or white screen of death) occurs whenever PHP throws a fatal error. Did you disable all of your plugins before updating? If you didn't it's most likely either one of your plugins or your theme that's causing the error. In that case, the best thing to do is restore your site from a backup (hopefully you backed up before updating), then disable all your plugins and switch to one of WordPress's default themes, then try upgrading again.
