This is so weird .. I cannot create posts, pages or update them either

  • The one moment I was still busy creating a page and saved it. Success! Then I made changes and clicked on update and it just does not update. Neither can I make a new page. The s2member block where you add the ‘page restrictions’ not working, I can only submit for review and then the page just disappears.

    What did I do wrong?

    Did you attempt to edit your SQL database recently?

    I don’t think this problem has anything to do with BuddyPress?



    That is what I was hinting at, Paul, I had a problem similar to this (I couldn’t access any posts or pages, but I could access categories, etc. ) and it was because I accidentally messed up a table within my SQL database and had to restore the entire thing!

    Just wondering if this user was having the same basic problem!

    How do I restore the database? I think maybe that could be the problem.

    Before doing that – disable all your plugins back to just base WordPress

    Can you post again now without problem?

    If you can post ok, add your plugins back one at a time, testing until you find the one causing the problem.

    You restore a DB from a backup, have you taken a backup? if not get in the habit quickly it’s essential and also absolutely essential to perform before you go anywhere near one to start manually editing tables, which can be a dangerous exercise.



    Agreed, DO NOT RESTORE YET though. Do What Roger said, disable every plugins, including BuddyPress. Check if you can post.

    Also, go to the wp-admin. Tell me how many posts it says you have. (When I had this problem it said 0)

    And I pray that you have a backup! If not, I pray your hosting server is legit (like GoDaddy) and makes daily backups of your SQL databases.

    You should really get in the habit of making them. My SQL database is nearly 800mb! I make backups twice a week just to be safe! You should to!!!

    Good news for all the people here! Bring out the champagne and let’s have a party.

    I repaired my database from within my cpanel, and it is working fine again!!!
