Support » Fixing WordPress » All Pages Are Blank?

  • Hi Guys!

    I’ve been having an issue with my site ( whereby all my pages are just coming up blank!

    I am also able to see some individual images such as this one:

    The funny thing is that i can still log in to my admin section without an issue and i can still see all my images and pages there as they should be, but something something’s obviously not right.

    I’ve already made sure that all permissions are as they should be (644 & 755)… I’ve also disabled all plugins and tried switching to the default theme, but as none of these have helped i’d really appreciate any advice!

    Thanks in advance,

  • Hello,

    Do not disable all plug-ins. Some of these plug-ins are used to make your site visible.

    Carefully, review each plug-in by clicking on Editor from Plug-in menu for discrepancies in code.

    You may also need to review the templates and CSS on Editor from Appearance. Some shortcodes may need to be used to run most plug-ins.

    Delete the wp-admin and wp-includes folders. Download a fresh copy of wp and using ftp, replace the two folders you deleted.

    Do you have access to server logs? It can help you to find the error.

    I have the same issue. I’m rather new to WP, but so far WP has just given me a load of problems. I think WP is too complex for what it does. This might be part of the problem.

    Thanks so much for your responses everyone..

    For some reason i cant get access to server logs in my cpanel (i think i used to be able to see these a day or so ago) but when i last looked (and the problem was still persisting) it was constantly saying that files were missing… these were located in wp-content and admin folders as well.

    It was very weird though because I did look for these files after seeing these error(s) and they were there, so i went and double checked the permissions for these files and these were as they should be too..

    Blank pages are a sign of a bad or missing php file(s). You don’t need to wait for server logs to proceed. This tells you about replacing the files.

    Thanks Kmessinger.. i’ve just gone through those options and now it seems that my website will work with the standard theme – yay! however it still won’t work off my custom theme, and as my page is based off a custom theme, i’m thinking that it might be an issue with upgrading to 3.5 (if this is possible?)

    I’ve also jsut pulled this error from logs out of my wp-content folder, i don’t know if this would help!

    Thanks again in advance!

    Yes, looks like your theme is not compatible with 3.5 which requires
    PHP 5.2.4 or greater.

    Thanks kmessinger and everyone else, you’ve been a really great help!

    So in order to get over this hump, do you know if there’s anyway to fix this issue,
    as i still cant figure out why things only would’ve changed within the last month!

    Thanks Again,


    Hi Kmessinger, just to let you know i also went through the process of downgrading wordpress to 3.4, but still it seems the site doesnt want to show anything else but a blank page.

    Thanks Kindly

    You might want to try a manual install of 3.4

    Thanks Kmessinger.. do you think there is much difference between what i did to downgrade and manually downgrading.. i thought they might have been the same process. If not, do you think there would be any benefit in downgrading to 3.3?


    Could be a problem with paths. When I changed site address to the install directory of wp, from to it got the pages back. But I had to make a basic redirect with a meta refresh from web root to /wordpress directory.

    I suspect this problem is within wp. Perhaps when creating the htaccess rewrite rules (as I understand wp does)

    There is no advantage to downgrading to any version. The problem plugin, theme, etc. will still be there and you risk being hacked.
