Hello, good people,
I wrote quite a long blogpost these past few weeks (not a new thing for me), but this one has an issue: on a certain size, it just gives a blank post once viewed online (the rest of the design is displayed).
The post is 5058 words long (according to WP's counter), and contains a few uses of videos and mp3s through direct Flash HTML code and plugins.
On my blog, the preview always displayed well, until this week-end when I added more text. It began giving me a blank post: the post is saved in the DB, but the preview only gives the title and the timestamp, along with the rest of the design - nothing in the HTML source code, it's as if the the_post() function wasn't called. No error message in WP or from the host.
I then made a few cuts and size tests: on my blog, the preview is fine when the counter is at 4850 words, and it's blank when I add just one word.
My blog is hosted at 1&1. I have published a far longer post a few months ago (mid-2008, WP 2.6) without issues, but 1&1 might have "upgraded" their servers in the meantime, I don't know.
I tried on another blog of mine on the same 1&1 account, and it would also fail, albeit at a different counter mark.
Tested on another one of mine hosted at DreamHost, same result, different mark. Tried on other blogs, one at Atmaniak (excellent servers) or even my work blog (excellent server, hosted by Typhon.net), same same but different.
On my own blog, I tried by disabling all plugins, but it didn't make any change to the preview (or even published post).
I tried the mod_security.c stuffs explained here:
and also this one:
but to no avail.
Tried to change the memory limit using .htaccess and "php_value memory_limit 32M", but it just brought a 500 error on 1&1 - and anyway I read somewhere 1&1 wouldn't allow anything more than 20M.
I'm planning to switch it all to DreamHost eventually anyway, but even on DH it fails...
The curious thing is that I'm not adding anything more than simple text in the editor.
I'm a bit at loss for suggestions. Anyone cares to tell me his thoughts? Thanks a lot...
