    I have recently installed wordpress on a subdomain of my website and everything seems to be fine except for the fact that the permalink settings page is blank after the header.

    I am not sure what the issue is, please help.

    Are you noticing this on any other admin pages or only the permalinks page?

    Only on the permalinks page.

    see your security settings. i think apache_get_modules function is disabled in your php.

    Has there ever been a resolution to this problem? I'm running into the same problem.

    I'm on a Mac OS X 10.5.8. Firefox browser. Also having the problem on Media > Add New page, and when I have the WP e-commerce cart plugin I have a similar problem on the Store > Products page.

    The weird part is that on a PC (XP, Firefox and IE) the only page having this problem is the Permalinks page.

    Thank you,

    I just see that I have this problem (in Google Chrome) after I made a clean installation of 2.9.2 and upgrade it to 3.0

    My Firefox browser can't display my site at all btw. but this is another story.

    For me it's the installation of my hosting account. Everything works well on my other domain.

    I just did a new installation of 3.0.1 and was having the same issue. I found this post, which basically says to comment out the following groups of code in wp-admin/options-permalink.php:

    Around line 92:

    if ( ! got_mod_rewrite() && ! $iis7_permalinks )
    	$prefix = '/index.php';

    Around line 153:

    It worked for me!

    Hi bellafaith and others

    Instead of all this, why not tackle the root of the problem. The core issue is incompatibility between WordPress 3.0.1 and latest PHP versions.

    Zeniph's solution given here solves the problem.

    You basically need to change the function got_mod_rewrite() in wp-admin/includes/misc.php to the following:

    function got_mod_rewrite() {
    	//$got_rewrite = apache_mod_loaded('mod_rewrite', true); //old line with false negative;
    	$got_rewrite = true;//force the response to true as we know mod_rewite is installed;
    	return apply_filters('got_rewrite', $got_rewrite);
