If you're getting the infamous "White Screen of Death" or "Error Rendering Page" error on your WordPress site, our White Screen Eliminator can help you locate and debug the issue to get your site back up and running in no time!
What Does The White Screen Eliminator Do?
Our White Screen Eliminator is an option that you can use from within your app settings to troubleshoot "White Screen of Death" or "Error Rendering Page" errors on your WordPress site.
To put it simply, our White Screen Eliminator allows you to reset your plugin, theme, or URL settings within your WordPress site back to their default values.
Note: You should only use the White Screen Eliminator when you're unable to locate an issue otherwise or restore from a backup. Resetting values from within the White Screen Eliminator will cause permanent changes to your site and is not recommended for production sites unless absolutely necessary.
Using the White Screen Eliminator
- Begin by logging into the Atomic control panel.
- Next, access your that app that you want to make changes on by clicking on the Apps menu item to the left of the page, then clicking on the Settings icon to the right of the app's name.
- Now that you're within your app's setting page, open up the Advanced Options setting by clicking on the Display Advanced Options icon at the top of the page.
- You should now see the Advanced Options section on your app's settings page. Within that section, locate the header named White Screen Eliminator with several checkboxes inside it. Simply enable the checkboxes for the options that you want to reset. Here's a quick overview of what each of these do when enabled:
- URL: Resets your URLs, such as home_url and site_url back to what is set as the primary domain in Atomic.
- Plugins: Deactivates any plugins that are not installed by default on Pagely sites.
