I'm building a WordPress blog on a site hosted by Network Solutions; my site is http://dedicto.com/ (no posts yet, only pages; still under construction). I'm building an annotated bibliography (well over 200 annotated entries so far) on mainly political topics, as a single large page:
The bibliography page displays normally in the browser, but I now get an apparently blank editor pane in the visual editor when attempting to edit the bibliography. Selection of the apparently blank area reveals ASCII text with HTML markup (not visually displayed text such as would normally appear), and any attempt to switch to the HTML editor by clicking the HTML editor tab fails. These problems occur only on the large bibliography page; the editor works normally on other, smaller pages. These problems only appeared recently; until it reached its present size, the bibliography could be edited normally.
Known versions of potentially relevant software:
- Firefox 14.0.1
- WordPress 3.4.1
- theme: Twenty Eleven 1.4
- plugin: Jetpack 1.5
- plugin: Simple Local Avatars 1.3.1
- plugin: Social Login 3.2
- plugin: XCloner 3.0.7
I've used XCloner to make a backup of the most recent version of the site, so there should be little risk of data loss; but my site will be of little value without the ability to grow the bibliography to arbitrary size, so this is a very serious problem from my perspective.
I've found one article on the Web that sounds as though it might be relevant to this problem:
However, the definitive solution proposed in this article involves editing the
PHP.INI file, since the author traces the problem to the underlying PHP engine rather than to WordPress per se. I would be willing to try this solution, but on my Network Solutions site I am apparently unable to access the
PHP.INI file (at any rate, I cannot find it). I would really appreciate a solution that would work from within WordPress, if one is available. However, if access to the PHP engine is absolutely necessary (as this article seems to imply), I am prepared to ask Network Solutions for help of that kind.
Some insight into what is really going on here would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
