Widgets do not show up on site

  • ForrestMiller


    I am trying to add a banner to my side bars but they do not show up. I put them in a text box and dragged it to Side bar and front page side bar and nothing shows up. Ive tried deleting my cookies and that does nothing. I even tried putting a banner in the footer and that did nothing either. I have no Idea what is wrong.


    Any help please

    Thank you

    Erm..where did you put the code currently? Also, what happened to the site’s footer?



    I put the code in the side bar widget as well as the front page side bar widget. It shows the code in the side bar widget like it is supposed to. But when I go to my profile nothing shows up. I already have two other things in the side bar but it wont let me add any more below it. It wont even let me put something above it.

    For the footer I put in the same code for the banner I put in the side bar to see if it would show up there but it wont. Seems like my page doesn’t show any new things I put in the widgets

    Something is definitely messing up with your site’s layout. It looks like the any code in the footer and below is not parsed at all. It might be one of the plugins you’re using. Try disabling them to see which one is causing the problem.



    I deactivated all my plugins and the problem still persists. I have no clue what else to do. What else could be causing the problem

    Did you modify any of the theme’s files? Or if you are using a child theme, what files do you have in your child theme’s folder?



    No i didn’t modify anything in the theme files or in the child theme. It just started yesterday morning. Is there a way you can look at my page source and figure out what the cause is?

    ok, now the footer is showing up properly. Try adding the banner in the sidebar again.

    Also, I’m seeing UA-24568728-1 at the very top of the website. That looks like a Google Analytics ID. If you’re using the theme’s Google Analytics option, make sure you include the whole code block instead of just that publisher’s ID. It should look something like this:

    <script type="text/javascript">

    var _gaq = _gaq || [];
    _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-24568728-1']);
    _gaq.push(['_setDomainName', '.domain.com']);

    (function() {
    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
    ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);




    Hey thank you for your help. I figured out why it was messing up. I had a facebook like box in my side widget and that was causing all the problems. It made the footer disappear and would not let me add anymore widgets to the sidebar. It also made my WordPress dashboard at the top disappear.

    Why would a facebook like box cause so many problems?

    Also, every time I update my content (widgets and options) I have to delete my cookies and log out of wordpress and log back in. Any idea why this is happening?
