Dashboard becomes unresponsive - blank screen


So I am new to php/websites. I have made some small php adjustments and added some code to dazzlings theme. With the slider to use non blog fotos and then I added/changed php code in navwalker.php to make a parent menu item respond again:


That work, then I also wanted to add the code, in that thread, in order to bring the sub-menu items to life again;

ul.nav li.dropdown:hover > ul.dropdown-menu {
display: block;

After that, when I tried to update file the screen just went to blank and none of wordpress dasboard works, everything just goes to blank, can’t log into admin/dashboard site either. Hosting is with bluehost.

Any tips/help will of course be appreciated.

Hi all,

So getting back on my own post - might help someone later. After some googling and then getting to know how file manager on bluehost works, I replaced the navwalker file in the theme’s documents and now everything is back to normal.

The syntax/structure of php works is poor, in my somewhat of a noob opinion.

Anyway. Thats that.

Hi @dermeister,

Sorry to hear of the problem you were facing.

Actually you were facing the common WordPress problem called “White Screen of Death” as described on the following page.


Awesome great to see you got that resolved.

Please advise if you have more questions.

Have a fantastic day!
