    Whoops. Sorry.

    I do not find any such problems when I scanned your site. I have visited your site and find it OK.

    What happens when you login? Can login now and report back?

    When I type in , I get a completely blank page. Sometimes I am able to log in but then again, it goes completely blank.

    I’m not sure this is the same problem but I can get to my website but if I attempt to go to the dashboard firefox abends.

    Right. The website is fine but I can’t get to the dashboard.


    Please make sure that your php version is suitable for WP.

    Huh? I’ve had this site set up with WP for 5 years and never had this problem before.

    And? Have you checked your current version of PHP yet?

    How do I do that?

    You could try asking your hosts.

    OK, so I found out the version on the server is 5.3.15. They say that is the most up to date.

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme’s folder inside wp-content/themes and adding “-old” to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress 3.4.1.

    OK, so my host helped me out a lot. Turns out there was some Twitter Follow Button Shortcode and Widget plugin problem that they fixed and now the site is fine. I have no idea how that occurred and why such a small thing would make the dashboard crash.
    Anyway, worth trying to anyone who has that widget.
