I recently set up my blog, but I am having trouble with the dashboard. The whole dashboard shows up, but it is almost as if the template is missing and only the text is showing up. I am including a photo so you can see what it looks like.
Try deactivating all plugins and check to see if this resolves the problem. If it does, activate the plugins one by one – checking the dashboard after each re-activation – until you find the problematic plugin(s).
Hi, I am having the exact same issue. I just installed my site yesterday (hosting w/ Godaddy) and the blog itself seems to work fine, but the dashboard is nearly impossible to use. I’ve tried to uninstall and reinstall, and I’ve tried several different browsers and it always looks the same. Just bare bones HTML, no images, not a thing.
It’s a brand new blog, so there are no plugin issues, the only thing I did was test out a different theme or two to see if it worked – it did (on the blog), but dashboard was still messed up.
I’m seeing this as an ongoing problem for a few people (particular Firefox users, it seems), but no solutions. Any words of advice? My site is animalpa.ws
It doesn’t seem like it’s the ads, because using IE with the ads gives the formatting back, but not the click-and-drag functionality. Using chrome with adblock has the same formatting-stripped result. *confusion*
Does Safari have the full functionality with click-and-drop with the widgets? I may try that browser next…
It may or may not be. I just have had bad experiences with them. It is something you deal with on some hosts. Even if they offer WordPress as a one-click install, you are not guaranteed that the webhost will be set to be able to handle WordPress properly unless they say they meet the requirements needed.
So, it is just a personal preference. I am more apt to recommend Host Gator or another webhost over GoDaddy until GoDaddy offers better service for hostees using WordPress.
