I've been following this thread to see what the outcome is.

Roger - I would also appreciate it if you would post your solutiion. I looked at your link and I'm too un-technical to understand it.

I've upgraded about 4 sites today and believe I have determined the culprit to be a non-WordPress endorsed plugin called WP Spam Free. By removing this plugin, the Flashing has decreased dramatically.

Still interested to learn more about Roger's solution, for the benefit of everyone here.

Okay then here's a hint.

It's called. "Flash of Unstyled Content"

Thanks for reporting back, Roger. I did try this per previous post without success. Do you have further insight?

Looks like Wordpress Vista (3.2) has been nothing but problems.

I do not suggest you upgrade at all.

WordPress 3.2 is faster and much better than the older versions, so why would you not upgrade?

On the WordPress forum there some topics where the upgrade has caused a problem, nearly all of these are caused by memory or a plugin with a deprecated file or code call!

Problems with auto upgrade fall into one of two areas, firstly server memory allocation, second is old and poor plugins.
http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-32-master-list?replies=7

If you have memory problems then a manual upgrade will work, using ftp to transfer the files.

Plugins can be de-activated and re-activated one at a time, and any problems can be dealt with by renaming the offending plugin folder via FTP.

If your ISP does not offer FTP then change your ISP, or pay them to fix any problems.

If you are still not sure then create a local WordPress 3.2 environment or a second WordPress 3.2 install and copy across the widgets you use and activate them to make sure they will not break your website.

Staying on an old version will leave you stuck when other themes and widgets are released.

Because it doesn't work.
Even the 2011 Theme has the White Flash. Version 3.2 is not ready.

I make my own themes.
Besides I'm not saying forever. Just until all the plugins get caught up.

This is like the Switch from XP to Vista. Nothing works anymore.

Keep in mind I'm talking power-sites. Not your average wanna be blog.

This test site is a 2011 child theme and the header does not flash?

Many plugins will never get updated, there is no control over third party plugins, these are not written or supported by WordPress, but code jockeys.

To get a theme on the WordPress directory is controlled and hard, as they have people checking the code.

But anyone can write a plugin and upload it to WordPress, there is no check on the plugin code for 'soon to be deprecated code', like there is for the themes, that is why there are more topics where the upgrade has failed.

If we are using popular plugins then they will likely catch up, but if we have older or niche plugins they might never get updated.

My approach is different as I would test on a non production install and if all works as expected then upgrade and get the benefits of the faster code.


The delay in the page load is likely down to a script loading, it could be a plugin, images, a theme function or the theme files!

If you delete <?php wp_head(); ?> from header.php the white flashes go away.

But this also makes some plugins not work anymore.

So something to do with this...

Plugin authors use this hook to load stylesheets and <script> code into the <head> </head> section, so it is not advisable to remove this call.

However it does support the theory that it is the loading of one of the scripts that is causing the flashing, it could be the flash header itself.

Have a look at the page source, right mouse and view page source, look at the scripts that are loading it could be one that is missing or is being loaded and not needed!

Fantastico

Wow. I just did this by accident. It seems Fantastico is still outdated. So if you go into Fantastico and press upgrade. It will actually downgrade to 3.12. Saved my ass. :-) Now I'll go play with 3.2 on a non live site.

Hi, Roger,

That's unfortunate that you had felt slighted in this thread. Kelley did offer you an apology, and there have been a number of requests for your solution.

Like Digital Raindrops, I also do not see a solution in the link you provided. That was an issue from 3 years ago and it dealt with Firefox 3's own code. Kelley's site issue is with IE.

And "Flash of Unstyled Content" is just that - content before the style. Kelley's site has the issue of no content - white flash.

If all you wanted was attention, then you got that, but providing a solution would make that attention mean something.

It seems having IE set to Compatibility Mode may also be attributing to this flashing.

I turned it off and a few of the sites that were flashing ceased doing so.

Hi
I've designed a theme with the last version of artisteer and it did work well until i upgraded my WP to 3.2 version and now the footer moves up when the length of the page is shorter than the full length of the screen. I mean that footer-bar must be stuck at the bottom of screen but it is suck to the bottom of the sheet. see this:
http://www.qahvegardi.com/schizowriting/2011/06/18/%D9%BE%D8%A7%D8%B1%D9%87-%D9%85%D9%89-%D9%83%D9%86%D9%85-%D8%B5%D9%8F%D8%A8%D8%A7/

Please guide me what can I do for solving this problem.

Look's like the thread on the wordpress forum is getting more action.

Too bad the mods there spend 90% of their time enforcing forum rules and only 10% of their time helping...

The only answer you expect from one of their mods is, "Have you tried turning off all plugins?" They don't actually know anything else. Kind of like Wal-mart employees...

Hi Abland,

I've only updated one site which is:

It's does seem snappier in FireFox but in IE, each page flashes white before loading. Very unsightly.

Kelley



Just saw your demo website, it is a bad one alright. Our wordpress site (www.astrasuite.com/astrablog) has no major white screen problem in firefox or IE, but major in Chrome (discussed at Google forums).

Anyway, still looking for an answer to solve the Chrome issue ...

Here is one note about it on the forum of the theme I use:
