Support » Fixing WordPress » Blank post and pages

  • Fortnightly


    Posts and pages, after a variable length of time, suddenly display as blank pages with only the title and sidebar elements visible.

    Page example:

    In some cases involving posts, the problem can be worked-around by using a paginating plug-in, but this isn’t successful with pages. We’ve tested and eliminated these possibilities:

    * It is not a theme-related issue
    * It is not a length-related issue. Most of our posts are lengthy, but even 1200-word posts suddenly stop displaying
    * It is not a hosting-related issue
    * It is not a time-out issue
    * Text is visible in edit mode; codes and content have not been changed
    * The problem seems to be a spontaneous one, with pages/posts displaying properly one day, then not the next. However once they cease to display properly, they do not revert.

    Thank you in advance for any advice.

    have you deactivated all plugins and tested?

    have a look at your errors



    Thank you, Samuel. We had deactivated all plug-ins and tested them by adding them back one at a time. The only conflict we located was an odd one: activating the Sharedaddy plug-in (a social media plug-in) caused our “About” page to disappear. But no other conflicts were detected.

    Otherwise, the content of the pages and posts disappear whether the other plug-ins were active or not.



    ah.. same thing happen to me

    what’s wrong?



    We don’t know. We’re on consultant number two.



    ah. just find the solution. it’s done by removing wpautop.

    I use Remove the AutoP Filter plugin and the blank page goes normal.

    apparently in some case the autop filter make the page blanks. we sould report it to the trac. you do it 😀

    The simple solution, very kindly proposed by Steve O’Hear, was to save the pages in “visual” format, instead of in “html” format. No idea why, but it was an instant remedy.
