Adding text makes page go blank

Recommended Posts

So this HAS to be a known bug. But when I add text to some of the .php files (like privacy.php or even index.php) and it is a good amount of strait text (say 2 paragraphs or more) then the page comes up completely blank when I go to it. White background and everything.

 

If I erase a few lines and try again it'll come up just fine.

 

Anyone else experience this? It happens with all the php files that I try to add a good amount of text too. This must happen to other people also...

 

I've searched for the problem and other people have posted simular postings and most of them get no responses. Please help!

 

Btw I'm very experienced with html but new to css and no nothing about java (just a little background on me)

If you're talking about the text in the language files, the most common mistake is not putting a \ before any ' (single tick mark) in the text, making them all \'

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

That was it! Ohhh man... the countless hours I spent frustrated trying to figure out what was making the page vanish after putting content in. Lol. :blink: Thank you so much Germ! Sometimes the simplest things are the ones that cause the most trouble.
