I'm new to WordPress, and downloaded the program for the first time on Tuesday. I have since reinstalled it 3 times in an attempt to eradicate the problems I'm experiencing to no avail.
My first problem occurred before I downloaded any additional themes or plugins, and has persisted throughout my use. In the customize section of the theme tab in 'appearance', I have a blank white page where the theme template should be. This also occurs whenever I attempt to 'live preview' a theme.
My next problem occurs in my site functionality, as I am unable to view any other pages but my home page (the domain name that I have registered). When I try and preview pages that I created, it shows an "Oops, this page cannot be display." sort of message, while still maintaining my theme and header image.
I had downloaded multiple themes, as I didn't know that they carried malware, but have since deleted all but the one I am using for my site. As I said though, the problems with my admin page had existed before I downloaded anything.
If it is relevant, I am running on Mac OS 10.5.8, and as a result am running on Firefox verson 3.5.2. I don't know if that could be the perpetrator, but these are the facts.
I hope somebody can help, as I would very much like to have the site up and running by mid-week.
