[resolved] Text entry boxes are missing (6 posts)

    Browser IE8
    Theme: TwentyTen

    Suddenly the text entry boxes fail to show in both Edit Page and Add New Page
    The Draft, Public, Publish Immediately 'Edit' links do not work. Nor does the 'Page Attributes' drop down....

    The Save Draft, Preview, Publish & Move to Trash buttons do work

    I have entered about 100 pages with no trouble until now.

    I have tried using the Appearance|Editor to refresh all php pages to no avail

    I have no plug-ins or widgets activated/running

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Another clue? I just clicked on 'Pages' I got the list of pages but when I tried to look at the list on say page 3 of the list of pages, I got:
    Error 500 - Internal server error
    An internal server error has occured!
    Please try again later

    I have managed to export the database to an XML file

    ANY guidance will be very much appreciated

    Looks like I'm talking to my self!

    Well, the problem does not appear to be theme related. I have just replaced my tweaked theme (tweaked for font type, wrapper width, image size) with a new virgin TwentyTen by doing it via Dreamweaver FTP thus:

    Local: renamed TwentyTen(local) with no Dreamweaver link update...
    switched to remote view (server)
    Remote: downloaded TwentyTen and renames to TwentyTen(server)
    That gives me safe copies....

    Then copied a virgin TwentyTen theme from the WordPress download and pasted it in my Dreamweaver sites directory alongside the two renamed safe copies. and uploaded to the server.

    On viewing my WordPress site, it had changed back to the specs of the untweaked version (Sans-serif, narrower wrapper, narrower images) exactly as expected...

    Then I went into my WP Admin and still have the original problem: No text entry box on PAGE mode (Edit Page Or New Page)

    It seems to have stopped at exactly 100 pages - Is this a limit on quantity of pages? I don't think so because of the server error 500.

    If there is anyone out there who can give me a clue as to what to do next I would dearly love to have some feedback.

    This is not a resolved issue
    I am closing this thread and starting one relating to .htaccess
    ...And error 500 on 1&1 (oneandone.co.uk)

    The issue IS now resolved.

    It was a missing .htaccess file missing from the server and the need to add an extra line to the .htaccess

    See this thread for the answer
