Support » Fixing WordPress » White screen when editing or creating post

  • Hi,

    I have had a couple of issues with my installation of WP. For some reason, whenever I try to edit a post/page or create a new one, I get presented with a white screen. This is the only issue I have.

    I have tried a clean install and it appears to happen even after a fresh install with just the standard ‘Hello’ Worlds and themes.

    Does anyone know what may be happening?

    Many thanks,

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    This may be a plugin or theme conflict. Please attempt to disable all plugins, and use one of the default (Twenty*) themes. If the problem goes away, enable them one by one to identify the source of your troubles.

    If you can install plugins, install “Health Check”: On the troubleshooting tab, you can click the button to disable all plugins and change the theme for you, while you’re still logged in, without affecting normal visitors to your site.


    It’s neither the theme or the plugin. The issue seems to occur even with a clean install of the standard WordPress files (before I even migrate my content across).

    All the best,

    You might check to be sure your hosting company isn’t inserting pixel tracking code for web analytics inside your page code. Depending on your hosting company, you may be able to log in and turn that off – or you may have to call them.

    Appears something changed with WP 5.1 to cause these errors to impact the visual editors.
