[Resolved] Problems with the front page

  • As of this morning, I have the following issues with the Front Page:

    1. Background fills the entire page.

    2. Sidebar with categories, links, etc. is missing.

    3. The menu with New > Post at the top is missing; I must sign into the Dashboard to do anything.

    If I click on a category in a post, ie, “Posted in Life On The Big Blue Marble”, it’s all good.

    Any ideas?

  • I do notice in a line by line comparison of the page sourse that one line is missing on the damaged page. Is it safe to paste it in there?

    1. add overflow:hidden; to #page (CSS)

    3. The menu with New > Post at the top is missing; I must sign into the Dashboard to do anything.

    You can only create new posts after logged in.

    Sorry, my ignorance is legendary. How do I do this?

    OK, I guess this is in the Theme Editor?
    I see #page CSS 5 times in there

    Edit the file (you can do this through administrator dashboard, in, Appearance, editor, then find the file on the right) style.css

    Search for “#page”
    within the curly braces ({ … }), add
    overflow:hidden

    examples:

    You are fast.
    #page is in there 5 times. Not sure which entry to edit.

    The last occurrence.

    That was under /* =Print
    Did not appear to do anything

    This is what it looks like now:
    #page {
    overflow:hidden
    clear: both !important;
    display: block !important;
    float: none !important;
    max-width: 100%;
    position: relative !important;

    Try

    #page {
    overflow:hidden !important;

    No change. Is now:

    #page {
    overflow:hidden !important;
    clear: both !important;
    display: block !important;
    float: none !important;
    max-width: 100%;
    position: relative !important;

    Okay remove that overflow hidden,

    scroll to the bottom of the style.css file and add this

    #page {
     overflow: hidden !important;
    }

    I notice that right under the menu there is a white bar, as if something is blocking the display.

    No change. Stubborn thing.

    Looks like it’s working to me.

    Looks like it took a few minutes for the update to go through.

    However:
    The Sidebar is missing
    The menu at the top (new Post, etc,) is missing. (you wouldn’t see this, of course.)
    However, if I click on say “Posted in Life On The Big Blue Marble“, and go to that category, it looks correct. I can actually post from there.

    And by the way, I really appreciate the help. It looks much better now than it did.
