Something doesn't sound right...   How does WordPress behave if you have the default Twenty  Seventeen theme activated?  Do you still have issues?   If the issues resolve with the default theme you then know it was the theme you were using. 

 

If it doesn't we look at plugins causing a conflict.  Whenever WordPress is not behaving as it should that probably indicates a conflict of some sort.

 

Or you could have had a faulty install or update.  You can do a manual update to replace all WordPress files -- here's how.

 

HTH! 😉

You do not have to use the default theme.  This is just a way of troubleshooting if *your* theme is the cause of the conflict.

 

If installing and activating Twenty Seventeen resolves the issue you know it is probably your theme.  If the default theme does not resolve the problems, it is most likely a plugin.

 

If you've eliminated your theme and all plugins as being the problem -- that leaves the possibility of a corrupt update or WordPress install.  You then need to replace the WordPress files per the link previously provided. 😉

The process is confusing @Muse.

Please how can i link my godaddy domain name with blogger so i can manage my blog from there. Have used  the two CNAME's blogger gave me and inserted into my godaddy DNS but yet its still not working.If i load the website it just loads and stop without showing any of the blog posts.The domain name is connected to a hosting too.

I'm as confused as you are....  Your initial request was for troubleshooting WordPress.

 

If you want to point your domain to Blogger, you have to have your DNS setup properly to accomplish that.   If you have the correct CNAMES in place according to Blogger and it is not working, then there is possibly a A name record or other DNS conflict.

 

I would suggest at this point that you contact GoDaddy directly for assistance to help you troubleshoot this further as they can "see" everything in your account.
