Support » Fixing WordPress » Admin pages not refreshing after updating posts/settings

  • I’m working on an online portfolio using WordPress using a custom theme of my own devising.

    After I’ve modified my settings or added/edited my posts and click the Update/Refresh/Publish button, the page will load into a blank screen. The changes have been made, but due to the page being blank there’s been no acknowledgment.

    I’m wondering if it’s a problem with my server or if it could be my theme that’s making the installation act up. I’ve tried reinstalling it three times now and haven’t had any success.

    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 default 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.

    I’m unable to log into the admin interface now. Just get a blank screen.

    I have reset the plugins folder, but had no luck.

    Try renaming the current theme folder to force the reactivation of the default theme.

    That did the trick.

    I think it’s related to the theme.

    Have uploaded all relevant code here.

    I have a sneaky suspicion that it’s related to the functions.php

    If you get the dreaded white page, it’s usually either that or header.php. Try commenting out the getImage() function in functions.php and see if that helps. The only unusual thing I spotted in header.php was:

    <script defer type="text/javascript"


    The defer is for the IE6 PNG fix.

    I commented out the entire getImage() function and that didn’t work. When I deleted it entirely, everything returned to normal.

    I was using timthumb.php to generate a thumbnail of the first image in the post.

    I found out about the method here.
