  • I made a huge mistake and accidentally clicked on the footer.php template to the side of the editor, recopied the original code back, updated it, and now the site is all messed up!

    Please help Juan, I hope there is a way to fix this! The code is pasted below.

    Hi there,

    Don’t panic, there’s a solution.

    The code that you’ve pasted here is the CSS that should be in the default stylesheet (style.css)

    Please re-download the theme files, take the code from the original footer.php and paste it on the one you have right now on your site. That should solve your problem.


    Juan, you are the absolute man. I am trying my hardest to learn this WordPress situation, but there are definitely some bumps in the road!

    Quick question, there should be nothing in the custom.css style sheet, correct? Also, if I want to make changes to the footer.php, when I click on it on the right hand side, it isn’t actually pasting anything? That is just a different section of the code?

    Thank you again, you have been so helpful!

    No problem 🙂

    The file custom.css is meant to “host” all the new css code that the theme customization takes. This way, the default stylesheet remains untouched and it’s easier to apply updates.

    I’m sorry but I don’t understans your question about the footer.


    No worries, I figured out the footer issue!

    Again, thank you for your help.

    Take care!

    Oh, great then.

    You too 🙂

    Have a nice day,
