Support » Fixing WordPress » Edit Posts Screen Not Displaying Correctly (edit.php)

  • Resolved mrsolutions


    When I go to the post overview screen (/wp-admin/edit.php) the list of posts doesn’t display properly.

    In Firefox the date is off to the side of the screen so I can’t see it and the post numbers (below) don’t line up.
    * All (55) |
    * Published (51) |
    * Pending Review (4)

    In IE the date is even worse and the date text is visible but written one letter at a time vertically.

    How can I fix this? Has been like it since 2.7.1.

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-related problems.



    Thanks, it was an outdated SEO Title Tag plugin that was causing it. Upgraded and now fixed.

    Hello. I’m with the same problem. I disabled all plugins, activated the default theme, installed a new unmodified theme, and doen’t work. When I try to edit a post, the page only shows the text below:

    Thank you for creating with WordPress. | Documentation | Feedback
    Version 2.9.2

    And the HTML generated is:

    <div class=”clear”></div></div><!– wpbody-content –>
    <div class=”clear”></div></div><!– wpbody –>
    <div class=”clear”></div></div><!– wpcontent –>
    </div><!– wpwrap –>
    <div id=”footer”>
    <p id=”footer-left” class=”alignleft”><span id=”footer-thankyou”>Thank you for creating with WordPress.</span> | Documentation | Feedback</p>
    <p id=”footer-upgrade” class=”alignright”>Version 2.9.2</p>
    <div class=”clear”></div>

    <script type=”text/javascript”>if(typeof wpOnload==’function’)wpOnload();</script>

    I am experience the exact same thing as of yesterday. I am using 2.9.2.

    I used automatic reinstall, accessing http://MY_BLOG_URL/wp-admin/update-core.php, and the problem was fixed. I didn’t lose any configuration.

    I get the answer at portuguese forum at
