Support » Fixing WordPress » Sidebar, Footer disappear in post view

  • Hi all
    My site is
    If you click on a post, you’ll notice that the sidebars and footer disappear.
    On my query, this is the response from (I’m using Canvas):

    The code is breaking after the social icons, this is probably related to a conflicting plugin or a programming error.
    Have you edited your single.php file recently?
    Check your PHP logs, the error should be logged there. Contact your host if you need help with access the logs.

    I have not made any changes to the single.php file, and I’ve deactivated all plugins one by one, without success.
    I would be most grateful for any assistance, including on what I should look out for on the PHP logs (I have no coding knowledge).
    Many thanks for your time,

  • Try switching to the default theme and see if the issue goes away…if so, use a trusted and compatible theme from this site.

    Also, deactivate ALL plugins and activate one by one to see if one is the issue.

    Thanks, @swansonphotos
    Much obliged, will try your advice right away!
    Kind regards, Ryk

    Thanks for your suggestions, @swansonphotos
    No luck I’m afraid 🙁
    Kind regards, Ryk

    Then re-upload core WP files…I believe it would take more than ten minutes to both review and task my reply…

    Hi @swansonphotos,
    Thanks for coming back with more!
    Can you be more specific on core WP files – are you suggesting that I over-write the WP install?
    Working from South Africa, it’ll take a little longer than 10mins to do that, owing to international Bandwidth constraints.
    I’ll probably wait for a quieter time (overnight) on the site, assuming there’ll be downtime on the site?
    Kind regards, Ryk

    Yes, all files except wp-content folder which includes theme and plugins and check wp-config.php and .htaccess or web.config if using IIS.
