    I can’t access settings, plugins, gallery or update pages within the admin area. It just takes me to a blank page.

    Maybe I downloaded a buggy plugin at some point? (NextGEN ImageFlow, magic fields??)

    The ‘help’ area just takes me to this link:

    Please help!?

    Thanks, Jen

    Have you tried:

    – 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 Twenty Ten 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 the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Sorted, Thanks!!

    I couldn’t access the plugins through wp-admin, but after further investigation I was pretty sure it was the pesky NextGEN ImageFlow plugin, so I deleted it through the FTP and everything works again now… phew!

    Thanks, Jen
