    I’m a complete beginner at WP or having my own website for that matter. I followed a tutorial on YouTube that appeared easy and comprehensive but now I find I’m unable to update any text or images. The original theme was “Responsive” 1.8.1, and shortly after submitting some info and pix I found the site was not “responsive” as was the claim to the WP site. I ended up playing around with the site (e.g.- uploading pix and adding and deleting text) just to get familiar with navigating around without feeling completely lost. I finally decided on some permanent text and images but when I attempted to update, I found nothing happened. So I decided that maybe the site needed to be updated to the latest version. But as I returned to “themes”, I found that I was running on the upgraded version 3.4.2 so somewhere along the line I must have updated the site to the latest version unwittingly. If I go to my dashboard – Appearance – Home Page, I’m able to type in my “Headline, Subheadline, and content”, but when I click “update”, nothing happens. Same goes for images or any other content. Any advice would be greatly appreciated other than “find another hobbie” 🙂

    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.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Thanks Esmi, deactivating the plug-ins did the job. Hope to not inquire again, but chances are you’ll hear from me again soon 🙂
