Support » Fixing WordPress » Top bar doesnt display correctly (?)

  • Resolved Darkkurama


    Hi, I’ve just installed WordPress (I’m familiar with it), but this time, I spotted a weird white line when hovering on the top bar, but only on the “buttons” that display a menu. Here is a pic:

    What did i do wrong, or what is missing in the files? don’t know as it’s a fresh installation!
    Hope I explained decently :p

  • Hi Darkkurama. Its hard to tell from the screenshot, but are you using the default twenty-eleven theme?

    If you installed a custom theme, try changing to the default theme to see if this is a theme related issue or not. A custom theme could have custom css in it that is causing a conflict with the top menu bar.

    Yes, it’s the twenty eleven theme, the one that comes installed with the fresh installation, i haven’t installed anything. Thanks!

    Are you using any plugins? If so, try disabling those to see if it resolves the issue.

    Also, I noticed this at the bottom of your WordPress site:

    <!-- Analytics Code -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <noscript><a href=""><img src="" alt="web hosting" /></a></noscript>
    <!-- End Of Analytics Code -->

    I’m not sure if you or your host did this, but if your host is adding this they may also be adding extra code somewhere else to your site that is causing the issue.

    Im not using any plugins either. I’m afraid the conflict is there somewhere… I can’t control much as the hosting is free. What do you suggest the conflict is located? Maybe a php.ini misconfiguration? Or a stylesheet?

    Hi Darkkurama. In my opinion, if you’re using free hosting and this is the only problem that you’re having, you may want to simply ignore it. While it may be a bit annoying, if it is not technically causing a problem with how WordPress functions, then you don’t really have a big issue in front of you. Also, if your free host is adding code that is causing the problem, there may not be much you can do to actually fix the issue.

    Well, i guess you’re right. If it’s not broken don’t fix it. I just wondered about it, second free hosting I try and still getting the same issue. Thanks anyways.

    Hi Darkkurama. I feel bad that I didn’t answer the exact issue you’re having! I can almost guarantee that the issue is with additional code added by your free host. You may be able to update the css to resolve this issue. For example, if you can find the div that is added (if it is a div), you can set the display equal to ‘none’;

    CSS Display and Visibility

    >_< This is weird. Just entered my site on a laptop, and there’s nothing wrong with the top bar. Looks like I have a corrupted installation of firefox or something, thanks anyways!
