    Hello,

    I just updated the CSS for my WordPress site, and now my site got reconfigured. Drop-down menu is in a different location. The calendar is in a different location. A logo that I had is completely missing as is a banner ad that I had. A black strip with caption ran across the bottom to each picture in the slide. Site is totally reconfigured. Please, can someone help me get my site back to its form? Thank you.

    -what theme are you working with?
    -did you save a copy of the old css file before you "updated"?
    -when you say "I just updated the CSS ", updated with what...?

    t-p,

    Thank you for your reply, and sorry for my delay. Not feeling well.

    Theme is Twenty Eleven.

    Did NOT save a copy of the old CSS file before I updated. Didn't know that I should or needed to.

    I updated the "Custom CSS Manager."

    Appreciate your help.

    Mike

    "Custom CSS Manager." is a plugin.

    So, if I understand correctly, the problem occured after you updated this plugin.

    In that case, try deactivating "Custom CSS Manager." plugin. If you can't get into your admin dashboard, try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems (because the hooks remain unless plugins completely removed or some plugins stick around in cached files. So by renaming the folder, you break them and force them inactive).

    I was able to deactivate the Custom CSS Manager plugin. It does not restore the data to where it was prior to the update.

    I do have access to my admin dashboard. So that's not a problem.

    Sounds like you're telling me to rename the folder, no, using php? Thanks.

    No, not using php.

    I viewed your site in IE9 and looks pretty normal, unless I am missing something.

    It does not restore the data to where it was prior to the update.

    What data? can you clarify please?

    Also, try clearing cache in your browser before viewing. To clear cache in your browser, press clrl+f5 keys simultaneously. Also, try different computer/different browser.

    If the issue persists, try resetting the plugins folder. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems (because the hooks remain unless plugins completely removed or some plugins stick around in cached files. So by renaming the folder, you break them and force them inactive). Instuctions for resetting the plugin folder are here: http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_Troubleshooting#How_to_deactivate_all_plugins_when_not_able_to_access_the_administrative_menus.3F

    "I viewed your site in IE9 and looks pretty normal, unless I am missing something."
    --A green "San Gabriel" logo AND running banner ads split the top slot. There was no search window as there is now. That menu that you see at the foot of the pictures used to be at the top of the pictures just below the banner ads and the logo. And what used to be at the foot of the pictures was a caption that named the pictures in the rotator.

    "So, if I understand correctly, the problem occured after you updated this plugin."
    --Exactly.

    I will work on clearing the cache and resetting the plugins.

    also, to rule out any theme-specific issue, try switching to the unedited default Twenty Eleven theme for a moment using the WP dashboard.
