Support » Fixing WordPress » Single Pages appear as partial HTML not formated web page

  • The bulk of my site works with a mix of posts and pages. But when I click on a single post link I get plain HTML. It looks like the beginning of the page has gone AWOL.

    Visit and scroll down the right hand side to News and click a news item to see what I mean.

    I have an identical theme working without a problem at I have deactivated all the plugins that are different on the problem site but there was no improvement.

    Any clues gratefully received?

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Hi Esmi

    – Partially tried the first. Will try the complete switch off when I have a moment.

    – Tried Twenty Eleven and it made no difference

    – Did this which deactivated all plug ins

    No change to problem.

    Maybe because I have my tables in the form wp_cabreoptions rather than wp_options I am causing a problem.

    Forget my last theory wp_applicationsoptions works fine on my blog

    An update on my WordPress problem with the single post pages just producing HTML gobbledegook.

    It is a permalinks problem. My first attempt at testing that proposition a few days ago failed. I changed the permalinks to the default and the problem was not resolved.

    Reflecting on the differences between my blog with the same theme and mostly the same plug-ins led me to the solution. Set the permalinks to /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/​ just like the blog. Hey presto they work.


    Then I read the manual:​ng_Permalinks which offers a caution about just using /%postname%/ but does not say it does not work just that it may cause performance problems.

    So now my News, Events, FAQ and other future post categories will be preceded by the year and date of publication. An unecessary distraction in my view. However I may publish posts with the same name sometime and this will stop that being a problem.

    Any thoughts?

    Anyone know how to stop the Before and After post links above the post title pointing to posts in different categories? i.e. if you are looking at a News post, I don’t want you to see a link to a FAQ.

    Back to the WP e-commerce CSS and free downloads problems.
