Support » Fixing WordPress » New themes do not activate, only older themes (white screen)

  • I can’t activate any new theme that I download…well when I do I get the white screen of death!
    The only themes that work are the original one that I’ve had a while and Twenty-Eleven. Even Twenty-twelve does not work.
    I have deactivated all plug-ins – no change.
    The only variable that I can think of that is different is that both my original theme and Twenty-eleven were installed BEFORE I upgraded to WP 3.5. All other themes were downloaded after, including the automatic download of Twenty-twelve. May not have anything to do with it but it’s the only change I can think of. is the site…the theme you see is an older one that obviously still works fine but again, nothing new will activate.
    I use the automatic installer inside of WP for all new themes.

    Any ideas?

  • I should also add that whenever I “preview” a new theme the grayish customize theme box pops up briefly for about a second to the left of the page and then I get a box that says “cheatin, eh?”
