Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress edit UI does not display. Only able to see left-hand menu.

  • Ok this is really strange. On one of my wordpress sites, I can now only see the left-hand edit menu (the one with “Dashboard” at the top). I can click on any of the items in that menu, but none of the UI in the right-hand side appears. Just a blank screen.

    I have tried several different browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox) on several different computers. They all do the same thing. Any ideas?

  • Was an update done to any plugins, themes, or core? Can you post a link to your site?

    I can only assume that I changed something a while back that broke the site, but unfortunately I didn’t notice the edit problem until recently. So not sure what it might have been. I am unable to share the wordpress version (or update the version) since I can’t see any of the edit ui. I tried upgrading from the site’s cpanel, but it says none of the wordpress installs need to be upgraded. So I guess I must be current (?).

    The site is here:


    This site uses Studio Press, btw. Not sure whether that is relevant.

    It looks like your using 3.3.1. It also looks like your using Streamline Child Theme. You could delete the theme using ftp and it will default to the default theme. You could also delete plugins this way as well. This is basic troubleshooting to see if the issue lies with any code from a theme or plugin. Once you identify the plugin or theme you then know where to concentrate. Of course I would make sure I have a copy of anything that was deleted first.
