[Resolved] New post is empty of content– newer & older posts are fine
I’m having a very strange issue. My second-to-latest post, posted 2 days ago, doesn’t display any content. It doesn’t show a 404 error at all and the post page does exist: it simply shows the header, featured image and bottom sharing links + footer without any text, images or videos in-between. Checking the post preview I get the exact same result, a page without post-specific content beyond the featured image.
I started writing a newer post yesterday and that one displays correctly both in preview and on the site. All older posts also display correctly.
I haven’t the faintest idea what to look for. I have checked the HTML-view for the post and nothing stands out, it’s all the usual < em > and < strong >. One video embed was made using the XVE Embeds plug-in, and two images were added through the regular WordPress upload & Multimedia archive. Deleting those and attempting repost resulted in the exact same issue.
I run WordPress 3.3.1 on a shared Hostgator server. The site is http://www.audiofuga.com, though the empty post is currently back in draft form as not to confuse readers 🙂
The only plug-in I have added lately was the Envato Toolkit, a plug-in that connects to my Envato account to look for upgrades for my purchased themes. I uninstalled it and attempted a repost, and still the post came up empty.
Finally, I have run the AntiVirus plug-in, and it has once again brought to my attention that the TimThumb plug-in integrated into my theme uses base64_decode, but I researched that before using the theme and only found confirmation that TimThumb’s use of base64_decode is legitimate, so I don’t think it’s a hacking issue.
I hope someone can shed some light on this. I’m stumped!
Thank you 🙂
It could be a server security configuration issue:
Hi Esmi, and thanks for the advice!
A Hostgator tech checked it out and apparently nothing was triggering the mod_security in this case.
Looking further it turned out to be the XVE Video Embed plugin– disabling it allowed the content to display.
Strangely enough other posts which made use of the plugin shortcodes still worked…
Thanks again 🙂
