Blank pages after theme install (3 posts)

    After I installed a new theme and clicked on activate, a blank screen came up. I tried clicking the "back"button and still a blank page. I tried closing the browser and re-logging in to the admin dashboard (thehiphopjournal.com/wp-admin), but all I get is a blank page at my login page. Help?

    1.Download wp-config.php (if you don't have shell access).

    2.Open it in your favorite text editor.

    3.Check that the first line contains nothing but <?php, and that there is no text before it (not even whitespace).

    4.Check that the last line contains nothing but ?>, and that there is no text after it (not even whitespace).

    5.If your text editor saves as Unicode, make sure it adds no byte order mark (BOM). Most Unicode-enabled text editors do not inform the user whether it adds a BOM to files; if so, try using a different text editor.

    6.Save the file, upload it again if necessary, and reload the page in your browser.

    Check with these options:

    - Disable all the plugins via login into to the FTP to out blog and rename the plugins directory.
    - Remove all unwanted code from htaccess
    - Upgrade your wordpress to the latest version
