    HELP, I have read all day and no luck. My site is gone, except I have the dashboard on the left side with all the tabs, jetpack, posts,events, media, etc. I can open these tabs and modify, but no luck in getting the pages back. I have deactivated all plugins (no luck), then changed to 2011 theme and still no luck. I think it has something to do with Facebook. Site lost pages yesterday, appearance, posts, menus and photos after adding facebook link.
    My Facebook page is also blank. The only think I can access on Facebook are the settings. Other than the setting, no pictures, post. Just blank. Please help?
    my site is, http://www.safer-u.com

    Wow, ur a miracle worker. I will start to customize again. Any ideas on what caused it to mess up. I was using the black mesa theme, also have you heard of problems arising when connecting with Facebook. My Facebook page is still down.

    Could not find the FB link.

    Yes, quite often FB links may not work or cause other problems. The solution is to get fresh FB codes and insert them, unless you use plugins or similar methods.

    Still something wrong with the backpage. Everything is on the left side with nothing in the middle or on the right side of the page. Also can't change color options or widgets. The small circle objects under delete or close just keep spinning

    Try this: deactivate all plugins and replace the theme with a freshly downloaded copy of Twenty Eleven (It seems you edited/ modified the original theme).

    that did not work. Error message, Unpacking the package…

    Installing the theme…

    Destination folder already exists. /home/melissaporch/safer-u.com/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/

    Theme install failed.

    Some of the remaining problems are because you edited/modified the original Twenty Eleven theme. Replace it with freshly downloaded copy. Make customizations by creating a child theme. Also note that any customizations that you make to the original shall be lost when you update next and keeping an unedited copy is essential for troubleshooting and solving other problems.

    Rename the existing theme by adding -old and try.
