    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
    <?
    to
    <?php

    Hope it helps! 😉

    and do the same on line 143 of \wp-content\plugins\wp-topbar\lib\wp-topbar-control-tab.php

    Thanks, Stefano!

    Not sure how that bug didn’t hit my various test beds. I just pushed out a fix in 4.02.

    Great! 😉 Thank you!

    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.

    I have implemented as much as was available to me with your current top bar.

    Let me know. Thanks for your time…I love the concept!
