Support » Networking WordPress » cant add theme in new added site

  • Resolved NormanBird



    I created a network. added a site. after it processed the screen just went blank, no message or anything, so thats the first weird thing, so i just used the back button and then refreshed the dash board and i see that the demo site is created, so ok.

    i view this new site and there is no formating so no theme. i use that new sites dashboard and go to themes and there are no networked themes to be added, i go to the network admin and check that the themes thee are network activated and they are. so im out of ideas.

    in summary the sites i add are without themes and i cant add a theme.

    thanks for any help …Andrea_r 😉

    Blank pages is a PHP error, so check your error logs for that.

    If there’s no formatting on the themes, check that your .htaccess is okay.

    Thanks Mika,

    I checked my .htaccess and it looked as this:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    Well that didnt look right so i checked the code in the network setup, and it was supposed to be:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    so i replaced the code with what was supposed to be there and at first it was the same, but then i did ctrl+f5 in my browser to clear the cache and viola! my site was there! 🙂 and there was beautiful formatting.

    the question now is, what happened to the code i used during setup for the .htaccess? I folled instructions and added it to the wp-config???

    a mystery or do you know what happened?

    You probably didn’t save the code in your .htaccess. It happens to the best of us!
