I recently installed Akismet, after seeing that I randomly got 1700 spam posts pending within a few days. I had been deleting each one by hand, and eventually gave up on it.
Last night, I noticed that after installing Akismet a few days back, I now had the option to search for spam comments when viewing the pending comments, so I clicked that. After what seemed like quite some time, I went back to the wordpress tab in my browser, and it only displayed the number “0” in the upper left hand corner. Nothing more, nothing less.
Now, my site loads fine (mhoganphoto.com/blog), and I can see my login screen, but beyond that, it only shows “0”, after I log in. I don’t see my dashboard, or anything like that.
I’m currently backing up my blog, which will take a little while, but what should I do?
– switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme’s folder inside wp-content/themes and adding “-old” to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.
