WordPress layout changed all of a sudden! (7 posts)

    Hi everyone. I need help trying to figure out how I messed up something on my layout. I'm new to coding so I'm using Pagebuilder to edit my webpage.

    It all started when I was trying to figure out how to add an email/phone # on top of my page from this link.


    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/add-phone-numner-to-top-of-pages?replies=15

    It mentions to add some code onto the header.php & style.css.
    I added those and then decided to delete them because I changed my mind.
    BUT, from doing that it completely changed the whole layout and style of my website.

    How do I fix it to be back to normal?

    Hello,

    Can you by any chance provide what the site looked like before and after? Or maybe the URL of your site and the code you removed?

    Hi Andy,

    I don't have a screenshot of it before but I'm using a theme called FInex.
    My site pretty much looked like this:

    But now, it looks like this:

    I checked into the pages of my pagebuilder and all the info is still there unchanged however.

    Hello,

    Forgive me, I'm trying to understand. The second link provided with the screenshot is your site? And the problem stemmed from adding a <div> where a phone number can be entered along with some CSS. This was then removed which gave you the layout problem. But you're also saying the info is still there unchanged? You mean the info you tried to delete.

    Finex

    My Website Now

    Yes, sorry for the confusion!

    "Finex" is the site where my website looked like originally.
    "My Website" is how it looks like now all of a sudden.

    When I added the <div> before, my layout was fine.
    But, after I decided to take it out instead, my website turned into the 2nd link "My Website".

    The info I was talking about was the layout information I was editing in Pagebuilder previously. Nothing is changed in my settings to make it change from "Finex" to the "My Website" link. Everything is unchanged there.

    Therefore, I'm not sure what I have done to make my website look like the second link "My Website".

    Does it have something to do with the style.css?

    No problem. I think style.css would be my first guess. Especially if it looked like the Finex theme and turned into a simpler looking website. Is it possible more was deleted than just what was added for the one element? Are you doing the modifications to a child theme or just the original installed Finex theme?
