    I am attempting to activate a new installation of WordPress. (Not my first) The following problem is occurring with two different themes, very few plugins. I am using a static Front page.

    I write a post or a page, save it. If I try to view a page from a menu tab, all I get is a blank page. Same thing for posts, if I try to view them by category or click on recent posts. I know the posts and pages are in the database because If I make any one of them part of the static Front page, it appears correctly.

    The test blog is

    I can start the whole thing over, but I am wondering which of the database (MySQL) or faulty WP files is causing this. Or is it something else?

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-related problems?



    I deactivated all the plugins (even akismet) and still have the problem. I switched to the default theme and still have the problem. I will just do a fresh install, I guess. But I was hoping to find out what the heck is happening.
