Site working great for weeks..then... (10 posts)

    Hello all,

    I am running http://gamingblurb.com. It has been running great for weeks, however, all of a sudden I cannot load in my "featured image".

    Also, whenever I click "DELETE" on anything, such as images, posts, ect. I get redirected to my error 404 page.

    (This page: http://gamingblurb.com/wp-admin/post.php?action=delete&post=425&_wpnonce=0e68110433)

    Any ideas here? I downloaded a couple plugins yesterday but I deactivated them all, and as you can guess I cannot delete them. They were all popular pluguns, nothing bizarre.

    I'm getting increasingly worried b/c my blog was starting to get successful traffic wise, and a lot of my authors are depending on me to fix this. And I have no idea where to go...

    Thanks to anyone who can help!

    By the way, "Use as Featured Image" is something built into my theme I believe, it puts the main image on the home page for each post.

    When I click "Use as Featured Image", it simply boots me to the top of the window and nothing happens at all.

    Turns out I cannot do a lot of things including update my users.
    I have searched the internet attempting various fixes but nothing it working.

    I am using pretty permalinks and I hear this may be the issue. However I've deactivated them and that did not work. Also tried deleting all my saved drafts in my phpmyadmin b/c I read that can cause an "infinite loop"...nope didn't work.

    Anyone else ever have this happen? I've downloaded "Whos Online" and "Bulletproof Security" and a couple Facebook plugins. I have deactivated them all though...

    Clicking "Drop-Ins" under Plugins also causes the 404 error.
    I'm also seeing now that my Jetpack Site Stats graph will not finish loading.

    Make sure that your .htaccess file exists and has the redirects for WordPress setup, that could definitely be the reason why this is happening. It should look something like this (depending on your setup):

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

    Bulletproof Security rewrote my .htaccess file completely.
    Stay away folks! that scared the crap out of me.

    You might want to set the permissions on your .htaccess file to be read-only so that it can't be changed 'accidentally' like this.

    Thank you, that's good advice.

    BulletProof Security is a good plugin. If you have issues with it you should asks for assistance on their plugin page:
