Support » Fixing WordPress » Header code blocking dashboard

  • Hi Everyone – I was messing around with a no-right-click code in my header (before I knew WP doesn’t allow). All was fine until I tried to log into the WP dashboard — the page is blank, with only ?> showing up. The blog itself loads and functions just fine (although the same ?> appears at the very top of the page).

    I know what I did wrong, I just can’t find the file in FTP to fix it. I’m using a template that, in the ePanel, allows me to insert code into the header automatically. The problem is I have no idea how it gets inserted or where (I know it’s in my header, but my header.php file doesn’t show the script I put in).

    I hope that makes sense? Basically, I just need to know which file the no-right-click code was inserted into so I can remove it manually via FTP — without access to the dashboard, it’s the only way to access.

    I’ve already tried loading my backup, which didn’t work.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    It looks like the error is in your header.php on the very first line.

    The first thing that should be in the header.php is <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

    I’m guessing that you inserted something at the top.

    If you haven’t messed around too much the team at elegant themes could provide you with the original theme you bought.

    Thank you so much, Christine. I have the original files for the theme, so I’ll try replacing with that first. I really appreciate your help!
