    Were you loading a lot of plugins? There could be some incompatibility issues with a couple. Try to inactivate one plugin after another and try to find the culprit plugin . If you have not done any work on your blog, you could also reinstall wordpress and restart it fresh.

    if the install is fresh, maybe just go ahead and re-install WP.. and also make sure you're using up to date version!

    If you installed Wordpress using Fantastico, sometimes it can get all screwed up and cause this problem.

    Try installing Wordpress manually.

    If you're going to go with any auto-installer, Softaculous is 100 times better than Fantastico: https://www.softaculous.com/

    Not sure if HostGator supports it...

    What Hosting do you have?

    Did you update Wordpress?

    What browser are you running?

    What plugins/addons is your browser running?

    It could be a wide range of problems. If it's happening on two different sites, it's most likely the install file you are using. The Wordpress installed through Fantastico (and most auto installers) aren't up to date. The first thing you should do after installing through an auto installer is attempt to update Wordpress.

    If you can't see the page to update Wordpress, it may be time to install manually. It's not as difficult as it sounds, and there are videos on youtube that explain how to do it on several different hosting services.

        Use quickinstall. I use HostGator, and have never had a problem installing WordPress with it. I've installed it on 5 or 6 of my websites.

          I was about to post this as well.

            One reason could be for some reason your text area (the right side area) is set to "hidden". You could try making that "visible" by defining parameters in CSS on Line 58 of your theme CSS style sheet.

    I would uninstall WordPress - clean up the root domain's folder and then instal WordPress again.

    Try that!

    I hope this helps!

    I wish you the best of the best!

    Keep up the great work!

    Cheers!

    Well, this is a first!
    Did re-installing wordpress work?
    I always install my Wordpress copy manually, try it, you might solve your problem.

    It looks like your WP install has become corrupted. As it's new and there isn't anything on it, my advice would be to delete everything (including the database) and install it again. If you installed it through Cpanel, use the "uninstall" feature as that usually deletes everything automatically.

    If a bare WordPress install is slow, it's the host. And Hostgator (EIG) is a known-terrible company.
    Reinstalling won't change a thing.

    Just to point out for those who have not actually read the thread, he installed using Fantastico which is no longer supported by Hostgator. Fantastico installs an obsolete version of WP.

    This problem is easily fixed by installing WP using Quickinstall, which is supported and installs a more current version of WP.

    Although OP did not return and say if he did get things fixed, it appears this was the issue.

    I would turn on debug in wordpress via wp-config.php

    define('WP_DEBUG', true);
    define('WP_DEBUG_LOG', true);
    define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', true);
    define('SCRIPT_DEBUG', true);
    define('SAVEQUERIES', true);

    And see if you get an errors in the debug.log which gets generated and stored in wp-content folder.

    This might help you to locate the issue and take necessary steps to rectify it.

    This should not happen in 99.9 percent of installations. Yours is definitely installation of wordpress going wrong. Just uninstall it and try reinstalling it. And if it still does not resovle, then try to install it manually using FTP after downloading right from Wordpress.org.

    And if it still continues then it is time to contact hosting support.
