"no posts found" on new install (24 posts)

    I just installed a brand new version of WP 2.9 for the first time. When I log-in to the dashboard, the edit posts page says "no posts founds", even though it also says "all(2) | published(2)". Viewing on the front-end gives me a "Not found! Sorry, this page does not exist." message.

    I tried creating a new post and it posts just fine. I looked in phpMyAdmin to confirm it is there.

    I have the same problem on the edit pages section of the dashboard.

    I am currently using PHP Version 5.2.5.

    Another quick note: I have no widgets installed, I tried several templates and I repaired the table in phpMyAdmin. Still have the problem.

    I just tried downgrading to 2.8.6 to see if there was an error in 2.9, but the problem persists.

    Anyone out there have any clues?

    Try re-uploading all WP files (except for your wp-config.php file) from a fresh download of WordPress.

    I deleted the database and all this files on the server. I then downloaded 2.9 again and gave it a fresh install. The problem is still there.

    Does anyone have any error testing suggestions?

    I do have root access to the server, so can make changes at that level if needed. I am also quite fluent in PHP, so can tweak the actual code as well.

    Definitely not a common error!

    Have you had a look at the apache error logs? Might be some sort of hint in there.

    Hi guys,

    I have the same problem. I've been using WP since 2.1 or something like that. I see the problem in any version after 2.7, but NOT in 2.7. I don't want to run the older version due to security concerns.

    I see the following when I click "edit posts" when I'm logged in as admin:

    Edit Posts Add New
    * All (56) |
    * Published (56)
    No posts found

    There's another problem as well: when I click "add new post", the page comes up but without any submit/preview buttons!

    I've done a lot of searching on this issue and others have said it might have to do with AJAX. Yes, of course I've uninstalled and done a complete reinstall (including themes). Yes, I've disabled all plugins. I've checked everything I can think of.

    Any ideas? I'm really at the end of my rope on this one.

    Make sure your plugins are activated.

    Hi Bill,

    If only it was something so silly. I've disabled, enabled, deleted, re-installed all plugins. I've tried doing WP re-installs with plugins enabled and disabled.

    I've repaired and optimized all databases on the server. No dice.

    Other ideas?

    Tried a different browser? Would be an obvious option, even if just to rule it out.

  11. h2ohippie

    yep -tried a variety of browsers. As with Will, no plug-ins, tables all repaired. etc. Nothing.

    I re-uploaded the 'wp-admin' folder from a fresh download like Esmi suggested and my posts are now visible on edit.php where they weren't before. Worth a try.

    per the request of Chris_K, i looked at the Apache error log and all seems fine.

    any other ideas? Anyone?

    I have been unable to import my word press blog into my new web site, which uses Word Press as well. Says can't complete the task. I went to expoert on the original blog and import with the web page. The export is in '.xml' format. Any suggestions?

    I'm having the same problem. I have a blog with 100+ posts but they all of a sudden they don't show up in my control panel or on my site. I upgraded to the latest version (2.9), and even installed a fresh blog on my server. No dice. I'm using 1and1 hosting and have php5 enabled.
    All of my other sites are working fine so I've ruled out anything with 1and1's databases. I've tried deleting all my htaccess files so I don't think it's that either. Then I tried adding a new user to the blog, disabling plug-ins, changing my passwords and AUTH_KEYs. So, why did my WP all of a sudden die?

  16. ahprojects

    Oh, and everything is redirecting to my single.php page. But my permalink structure is set to "/blog/%post_id%" and my htaccess looks like this

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    first time that i leave any message here!

    i had a same problem, and it was corrupted table in the database. wp-posts one.

    it can be easily repaired. just check the folder and push 'repair' button! and done!

    the fix for me here friends was to reinstall the WP 2.9.2 upgrade. Try re-installing from the admin dashboard or from your host's application control panel.

    I've been trying for a few days to pin this down (on and off) and it looks like a bug with wordpress's permalinks system

    My preferred url structure for a recent wordpress 3.0.1 blog (and I've back tracked this to at least 2.9.2) is


    When this is turned on I get the no posts found message in wp-admin system when clicking on posts though there are posts there in the numbers at the top of the page and output onthe site.

    reverting back to some other structure fixes this right away

    I have used /%category%/%postname%/ for a long time on a lot of blogs so I guess it's a specific isse with dates, or maybe just numbers at the end of the url

    I am having a very similar problem that seemed to appear after an uptrade from 3.02 to 3.03. Whenever i go to the wp-admin/edit.php page I get; No Posts Found. Even though right above it has:

    All (200) | Published (185) | Private (15) | Trash (3)

    I have tried the following:

    1. repair db
    2. optimize db
    3. copy in fresh wp-admin / wp-includes
    4. copy in ALL fresh files except for wp-config.php
    5. removed all modules (by deleting and by deactivating in the plugins menu)
    6. Added salt values to the wp-config (1.1 versions)
    7. Added define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M'); to wp-config.php

    Other odd sympthoms include:

    a. All in One SEO complains about wanting to be activate, however when I try to enable it, I get a "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." message. Same with Wp-Cache

    b. The screen tab is missing in the wp-admin/edit.php page as well as in the post-new.php pages.

    c. The side bar that allows for publishing options is missing in the post-new.php page, so creating new posts is not really possible.

    I am kind of running out of ideas here, and could use some suggestions.

    Thanks a lot,

    I've had the exact same problem as zadunn when I upgraded to 3.02 to 3.03. In addition to not having access to my 95 posts, I don't have access to my 108 media itmes that I've uploaded in media library.

    Please help! Thanks.

    I'm having the exact same problem.

    I`ve had the same problem, Event Calendar plugin made it in my case. Try turning off some of your plugins.
