Cannot edit drafts—white page (4 posts)

    I am pretty much completely new to WordPress, CSS and all this web stuff. And I am a total dummy when it comes to code, etc. I seem to have screwed up my blog, so I really hope that someone will take pity on me and be my savior. The problem is: I can no longer edit a draft for one of my Pages. I have tried several toubleshooting tips that I found on this website: I disabled the Visual Editor and removed plug-ins, and the draft page still will not load. This problem started the other day: I added an .flv file to the page, and then started experimenting with different FLV-player plugins. All of the players would make the draft page not load. I could however see the page when viewed in Preview of the Page mode. I settled on using the JWPlayer with the Glow theme in conjunction with Shadowbox (as seen on the WordPress blog artofthetitle.com)—although no player would ever appear on the page...when JWPlayer was activated, the video would download, and when Shadowbox was activated, the video would play in a player with the default theme instead of the Glow theme. I am digressing. (If anyone can provide information on fancy FLV players and getting them to work, that would be great too.)

    I have removed all of the plugins, removed the .flv media from the Media list, reinstalled WordPress, restarted Safari about three times, emptied the cache files, and the draft page still will not load. I do not understand what I am doing wrong, but this is a very frustrating situation. I can't for the life of me figure out how to fix the problem, and get the draft page to load successfully again so that I can finish the Page and be done with it. Do I have to start all over with this page? I hope not, since it is over 5600 words.

    Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

  2. You may be able to salvage the post by going into the database and pulling it out, but I think it's making calls to a plugin somehow.

    Thanks ipstenu, are you saying I'll need to start over? How do I get into the database?

  4. No, you don't need to start over, but you may have something in that post which is causing the white screen. Do you have PhpMyAdmin or something?
