    Hi guys I am having an issues with my website http://www.ironingcolchester.com it has a normal menu home – pricing – contact – review which works fine on a desktop however when I look at the site on a phone it changes that to a drop down menu, which when you click on it does not do anything… it should drop down so people can click on a different page but as it stands you are stuck on the home page! Using the sela theme. Please help!

    Hi @samuelmanzur,
    For some reason your theme’s JS is not being loaded. Do you know if the theme’s footer.php file has been modified?
    It should look like this: https://themes.svn.wordpress.org/sela/1.0.15/footer.php

    The important bit is that it should include this line:

    
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    Just spoke with a friend who helped
    Do the website and he has said he deleted the information in the footer.php file to get rid of the “powered by WordPress” removed! Brilliant lol. How do I sort this out then :)?

    Just restored the php file doc but just removed the powered by WordPress writing from it, still not working

    You can just put/replace original footer.php from the theme archive you have downloaded.

    Can you restore the file as it was originally so that we can rule out whether this change was causing the issue?

    Copied and pasted the https://themes.svn.wordpress.org/sela/1.0.15/footer.php
    Into the php.footer section it is not even showing the powered by WordPress section now :/. There is no additional css in the customise css box. I pressed update file. Do I need to do anything else to make it go live?

    Hello Samuel,

    Do you have access to your host via ftp? If so, go to wp-content > themes > sela >

    and then upload/overwrite footer.php (for that go to the link given and save that as footer.php in your computer)

    I have found the problem, “a static front page” was clicked, have a look at the website now the button works but it is showing two lots of home pages, one I would like to keep the other which shows up now when the website is loaded, it does not give me the option to delete this as it is not listed as a page?

    Fixed that now ๐Ÿ™‚ now finally how do I get rid of the proudly powered by WordPress without breaking anything? Thanks for the help

    Great. Glad to know that you got it resolved. Btw I checked the site but it looks perfect with menu items also.

    Are you still facing any issue?

    Glad to hear that. Congrats Samuel. ๐Ÿ™‚

    No it’s brilliant thanks!

    If you know how to get rid of the proudly powers by WordPress in the footer and which but I need to delete out of the footer or css to use to hide it, it would be appreciated ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ok, you will normally find such credits in almost every theme. You have to create a child-theme and use updated footer.php so that it doesn’t show ‘Proudly powered by WordPress’ or you can just replace the text with your own ‘Copyright by Samuel’ etc.

    Using child-theme will keep your edits even if parent theme gets updated.
