Support » Fixing WordPress » posting and loading problems

  • So a friend I met over a forum made me a website using wordpress and everything was running great for the first week or so. (I’ve had for about 2 weeks) Everything loaded quickly and i could quickly upload photos to my gallery and insert them into posts. Now when I log in and try to edit I first see all the coding in the visual tab and have to wait about 5mins for the visual sectiojn to load then when it loads i try to insert a picture at the bottom and it takes another 5-10mins for the gallery to load and another 5 for the pictures to show and then when i click insert into post it acts as if it’s inserted but nothing appears there. It never used to do this and I don’t know why it does this. I have NO plugins whatsowever and my website is pretty bare only some text like 2 short videos and about 15pictures are on it so I know it’s not a bandwith problem or anything. Also the guyt who made the website hasn’t been on in a week so he can’t help me and I don’t know any scripting or codes for the most part so consider me a noob when you’re giving me any tips! please and thank you!
    Here’s the website by the way if you need it.

    Have you tried:

    – switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems?

    – re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress?

    I initially thought maybe it was your hosting or database, but your website seems to load up pretty fast. Try what esmi said and make sure you backup everything before you delete anything.

    everytime i try to re-install i get the error
    Error: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct.

    and i already am using twenty ten!

    How are you trying to reinstall wordpress?

    Are you manually reinstalling/uploading the wordpress files?

    i tryed installing automatically im not exactly sure how to install manually.

    i downloaded it to my computer now what?

    *IMPORTANT NOTE: Before uploading anything or deleting anything from your web hosting directory, make sure you back up everything, all of the files, from your web host.

    Once you have downloaded and unzipped the wordpress file, you have to upload most of the files to your web server. Maybe this will help: http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress

    as i told you im a super noob at this. how do i backup my files?

    ahh i think i backed it up on my webhosting site.

    What did you do to back up your files?

    To back the web files up, you can copy the remote web files to your computer. I’m guessing you are using an ftp client to access your web files?

    i honestly have NO clue how to use this ftp client or what i am doing at all.
    I downloaded filezilla and put in the FTP credentials my webhost gave me and it says critical error: failed to connect.

    Okay! I got it to connect but I don’t knwo what im supposed to do from here this [expletive removed] to confusing for me haha.

    Yeah, it can be. What folders do you see in the directory?

    Have your tried adding a post, inserting pictures, and stuff to your blog from another computer. Maybe it’s your computer itself that is having trouble.

    yeah i tried from a different computer btu it didnt work.

    i just did this.

    3. Delete the old wp-includes and wp-admin directories on your web host (through your FTP or shell access)

    but im not sure how to do these last steps. can someone walk me through it?

    4. Using FTP or your shell access, upload the new wp-includes and wp-admin directories to your web host, overwriting old files.
    5. Upload the individual files from the new wp-content folder to your existing wp-content folder, overwriting existing files. Do NOT delete your existing wp-content folder. Do NOT delete any files or folders in your existing wp-content directory (except for the one being overwritten by new files).
    6. Upload all new loose files from the root directory of the new version to your existing wordpress root directory.

    4. From the uncompressed .zip wordpress file you downloaded from wordpress.org, drag the wp-includes and wp-admin folders to filezilla to the directory where you just deleted the remote wp-admin and wp-includes from.
