Broken articles

Post by Radooz » Sat Dec 04, 2021 5:14 pm

Hi, all of a sudden, I only got a blank white page if I wanted to write or edit an article.
Otherwise, I will get to the list of articles, then only the white page. Please advise. Thanks

Welcome to the Joomla forum!

Obviously something has changed to make the website behave that way. Did you install a new third party extension, which was not compatible with the version of Joomla, or did your host update PHP to a later version? Does the website follow best security practice?

A blank page is an indication that a PHP fatal error has occurred. If you can still access the back end, go to Global Consiguration and change the level of error reporting to 'Maximum' and activate the plugin System - Debug. This combination will display detailed error messages. Post the messages here for advice.

See viewtopic.php?f=706&t=976319 for advice about "blank pages"
