Footer Disappeared (11 posts)

    I had a simple edit needed on the footer of my site and once I updated I noticed the footer gone completely. The site:

    sandrawalston.com

    I truly would like some insight as nothing I am doing is rectifying the problem. It was working before!

    Try temporarily setting define('WP_DEBUG',true); in you wp-config.php file to see if any PHP errors occur.

    Does it matter where I put that in the file?

    Not really just put it somewhere above the "stop editing" line.

    You are looking for unusual text in the browser when you visit the site. Some PHP errors probably at the bottom of the page, where the footer would go.

    If you find any errors post them here.

    If you had a good look and have not found anything remove the line from the config file.

    If you modified the index.php file, check if you have the <?php get_footer(); ?> Tag.

    I see no errors anywhere... and I know I have not edited the index page. IN fact re installed wp clean this morning with still no luck.

    Oh, I meant the index.php of you theme, located in /wp-content/themes/whatever/index.php

    Are you making any progress on this? I saw the website has a footer now. Would you like to share what the problem was? Please mark as resolved if your problem indeed is fixed.

    I am still working on this but inevitably it was the theme that needed to upgraded. So far so good though but a PITA to fix.
