Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress dashboard has lost the display style

  • Resolved sebito94



    I’m using and discovering wordpress and its functionnalities since few days.
    I was working on it this morning and everything ok, then I stopped and came back few hours later and my admin page (/wp-admin) has totally lost the style.
    My website displays as before, nothing has changed, but the administration page is so weird, I cannot do anything, everything is overlapping and it’s almost impossible to found the functionality I want in this “menu”.

    I didn’t do any update (neither WordPress update nor any plugin update).
    I also tried to remove all the cookies and cache of my brower, and tried other browsers but it doesn’t change anything.
    I restarted my computer as well but still nothing.

    Weirdest thing: I’m not the only administration profile of this website, and the other one has a normal display of this admin page…

    Obviously I would like to have it corrected on my computer…

    Please help.

    Try manually resetting your plugins (no Dashboard access required). If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

    If that does not resolve the issue, access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account’s control panel (consult your hosting provider’s documentation for specifics on these), navigate to /wp-content/themes/ and rename the directory of your currently active theme. This will force the default theme to activate and hopefully rule-out a theme-specific issue (theme functions can interfere like plugins).

    Hi James,

    Thanks for your suggestion.
    Meanwhile, I have found on the forum another suggestion which worked for me.
    I put it there in case it could help anyone else:
    Write these 2 lines in the wp-config.php:

    define( ‘WP_DEBUG’, true ); /*This line already exists, just change from “false” to “true”*/
    define( ‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false ); /*New line*/

    I put the topic as resolved then.

    Try turning off AdBlock. Was in the same boat just now and turning off AdBlock fixed the dashboard display.
