New Custom Child Theme Disrupting wp-admin

  1. 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.

  2. Hi,

    seems to be a php error somewhere in your child theme. Please zip it and send it to chris (at) wupperpiraten (dot) de

    Can take care of it in about 5 hours.

  3. I actually figured it out with the help from a PHP friend of mine.

    Turns out that I had copious amounts of open <?PHP commands. That is I was missing the '); at the end.

    Second, there was BLANK SPACE between lines. I checked the PHP error log and the blank space I had in the functions.php was screwing everything up!

    Time to learn PHP. I spend too many hours fooling around when I should just be designing and integrating.

    Thanks for offering to help.
