RewriteUrls = TRUE leads to white page


I just try to get some pretty links. So I set the RewriteUrls-Option in the config.php to TRUE.

This is how my htaccess looks like:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
   RewriteEngine On
   RewriteBase /
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
   RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php\?p=$1 [QSA,L]

Unfortunately only white pages are displayed if i click on a category. Does anyone have an idea how this can be solved?

Best regards!

    Welcome to the community!

    You need to enabled debug mode by adding $Configuration['Debug'] = TRUE; to your /conf/config.php file.

    Thanks, but I already tried to activate the debug mode. The page still remains blank :(

    you need to look at your server logs.

    grep is your friend.

    I think it must have something to do with the last update to 2.1.8p2. I have a fresh installation in another directory (also 2.1.8.p2) which works fine!

    One thing that already produced an error was my bootstrap.after.php, which looks like the following:

    <?php if (!defined('APPLICATION')) exit();
        if (!function_exists('SocialSignInButton')) {
        function SocialSignInButton($Name, $Url, $Type = 'button', $Attributes = array()) {
        TouchValue('title', $Attributes, sprintf(T('Sign In with %s'), $Name));
        $Title = $Attributes['title'];
        $Class = val('class', $Attributes, '');
        switch ($Type) {
        case 'icon':
        $Result = Anchor('<span class="Icon"></span>',
        $Url, 'SocialIcon SocialIcon-'.$Name . ' ' . $Class, $Attributes);
        case 'button':
        $Result = Anchor('<span class="Icon"></span><span class="Text">'.$Title.'</span>',
        $Url, 'SocialIcon SocialIcon-'.$Name.' HasText ' . $Class, $Attributes);
        return $Result;

    As I wasn't able to find the Error, I re-installed vanilla. Now it works fine.
