After a couple months of supporting the Virtue theme we’ve found some very common issues. All with very easy fixes. So here is a tutorial on the most common wordpress fixes.
If you ever run into a page that comes up with a 404 not found error or your backend is working and all you can see is a blank page on your front end. Do this first.
- Go to Settings > Permalinks
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click save.
(You don’t even have to change the permalink type)
If virtually anything is acting strange or not working plugins are the culprit the majority of the time. Either they were incorrectly set up or they are just not compatible with your theme or server or they just plane don’t work. This is the first place to start if you are trouble shooting your site.
- Go to the plugins page of your wordpress admin.
- Select all your plugins and in the bulk actions select box choose deactivate.
