Support » Fixing WordPress » Posts > new post missing option

  • Hi, I recently migrated my site to a new host and since then I’ve found that for new posts and new pages I’m now directed to the page where all posts/pages are edited, rather than what I chose, which was to create either a new post or page.

    Second issue : I get an http error when trying to load any media. The image attempts to load and then I get an http error.

    My site is if that helps diagnose the problems. It’s in maintenance mode right now so you won’t see anything.

    I had hoped to spend the weekend installing and customising a new theme but these issues have cropped up since the move and my host company are brilliant but baffled so I thought I’d reach out to the WordPress community and seek help so I can move on!

  • For the HTTP error, I get that often after I install WordPress sites on my host.

    Try this: go into your .htaccess file within the root level of your WordPress installation. This file is a “hidden file” so you might have to change a setting in your FTP program to see it. Once you can, go into it and add the following line of code…


    …before this code:

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

    That takes care of the HTTP issue for me.

    Are you not seeing the “New+” menu in the black admin bar, while logged in?
