I am wanting to change my Wordpress theme from Pagelines to Wordpress Twentytwelve as I would like to experiment with some of the features in that template. It has come to my attention that any theme that isn't Pagelines results in a blank white screen when visiting the URL of my site. I tried uploading a fresh version of Twentytwelve via FTP - but the fresh copy did exactly the same thing.

I am activate and deactivate different themes, but Pagelines is the only one that works. Can somebody help me figure out why this is?

Well a blank white screen is a PHP error, wordpress simply suppresses them. Open wp-config.php and uncomment the WP_DEBUG line, and set to true. That will show you the error, probably a plugin.

What does the term uncomment mean? Do I just search for a phrase in the configuration.php file containing wp_debug and remove it or add /* */ tags either side? Sorry, I am new to web development. I will look into this further.
