99% of the reasons a plugin is not working is because the custom CSS that you entered i s not valid.
To double check your CSS, go to the debug tab and look at the EXACT HTML that the plugin is generating. If you need to, copy that into a HTML validator to find the error.
Then, simply, change your custom CSS to fix the error.
Also, if your TopBar isn’t showing, please don’t just start a support request without also supplying the details of how your plugin is configured. So, tell me the options you are selecting and copy the generated HTML/CSS from the Debug Page.
Also, look at the Live Preview page. You should see a “Time Check” and “Cookie Check” message. That will tell you if you have a time range or a cookie that will cause the TopBar not show up.
Finally, you have may have a PageID or Category ID (new in 3.10) that may prevent the TopBar from showing.
The whole Plugin doesn’t work? When I activated it, wp told me that it didn’t have a valid header. (and yes I’m pretty sure it doesn’t mean mine 🙂 )
Plus, there are no topbars displayed in the settings menu. Nothing to set up.
i had the same problem as Iono, when I try to install it via the automatic installer i get the error message that says it didn’t have a valid header.
so I’ve downloaded the plugin, uploaded it in the plugin directory, but then i received a php error…
to fix it you should edit line 516 in \wp-content\plugins\wp-topbar\lib\wp-topbar-admin.php
changin it from
Hope it helps! 😉
and do the same on line 143 of \wp-content\plugins\wp-topbar\lib\wp-topbar-control-tab.php
Not sure how that bug didn’t hit my various test beds. I just pushed out a fix in 4.02.
I am still getting the error on 4.02, and I cant find the fixes above!
Bonkerz, pls turn on debuging in wp-config.php and send me a link to the logs.
I’m having the same issue. “The plugin does not have a valid header.”
Xpaw01, pls turn on debuging in wp-config.php and send me a link to the logs.
I’m getting the same error as xpaw01. How do I turn on debug in wp-config.php?

Do you do any customization to your top bar plugin?
I would like to be able to add widgets such as Sharing (addthis) additional social media and a short menu.
The footer on this site is pretty much the idea…
This would provide a lot of flexibility to the plugin. Let me know.
I also have a test site in case the other one is not live, since we are working on it.
Let me know. Thanks for your time…I love the concept!
