I've been working on a childtheme for a few days now and tonight I hit a huge impasse.
Now, on the backend, whenever I do a save, update, edit, or other changes (anything aside from switching through menus), the system just goes to a blank white screen. If I hit the back arrow, the change actually records to the database, but it is some how unable to go through the save process on the screen like normal.
I did a fresh database and fresh install of WordPress and Thematic and re-uploaded my childtheme. (I'm working offline in MAMP.) It works, but the admin side is crazy.
I only have a style.css, functions.php, and footer.php for my childtheme. My functions.php is very basic and is cut and pasted from the forums and it works for all intensive purposes. There aren't any syntax errors from what my editor is showing me.
Am I missing putting something into my functions.php? Why is this blank screen consistently happening to me. Very scared and frustrated as the project is due in two days.
