How to Fix Blank Amp Pages on WordPress with Thrive Leads Plugin Installed

Just had this issue on our site and thought I’d share a quick update.

Blank AMP Pages are Likely Caused by a Plugin Conflict

If you’re running the AMP WordPress plugin and have recently noticed your AMP pages are blank, you should immediately check your plugins. Have you recently installed or updated a WordPress plugin? If so, follow this approach.

How to diagnose WordPress plugin conflicts

  • Open up your AMP blog post that isn’t displaying page content (add /amp to the end of your normal URL)
  • Deactivate a plugin
  • Refresh the AMP blog post (you may have to clear cache if you have cache plugins enabled)
  • Did this fix it?
    • If Yes, that plugin is conflicting
    • If No, continue deactivating plugins one-by-one

Whenever you have WordPress conflicts and errors, the plugins are the first place to troubleshoot.
