Sidebar missing

Recommended Posts

Keith Vaugh

Oh oh, My side bar which was working fine an hour or two ago is gone missing. 

 

Nothing has changed on the site and everything is as it should be in the backend (I think). 

 

Anyone ever see this before? http://www.magva.com/blog

 

Thanks

Hello Keith,

 

Several things can cause this, but most of them are user-based and simple to find and resolve.

 

First, let's look at Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Layout Editor to see if the layout selected includes the sidebar.

 

Next, let's look at that particular page to see if the layout has been changed or sidebars hidden.

 

You can also check Dashboard > PageLines > Page Options > Site Defaults and other templates to make sure the proper layout is selected and nothing hidden.

 

Lastly, your security on the site seems to be too tight. I am getting a 503 error after looking at only 2 pages.  That's a guaranteed way to lose visitors.

 

I received this message:

Your access to this site has been limited

when viewing http://www.magva.com/shop/  or other pages. That could be a plugin, inexpensive hosting or bad server settings.

Hi Keith

 

Looking at the source code, it's showing the site was set to full width -http://screencast.com/t/9TphR8dGfu

 

Is it just this page or site wide. I've tried checking the other pages but i'm getting a message saying the following - http://screencast.com/t/fVfM4Gduj

 

I would say check the site layout options in the layout editor first, in Pagelines>site options>layout editor

 

Then on the page in the page meta. If the page is a special page, like blog, check the meta in Pagelines>page options>blog for example. Make sure the page is set to the sidebar layout.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Hi Guys, I've checked all and can't see any problems. The side bar option is selected on the blog page and nothing is hidden. Have checked in the drag and drop and every thing appears there. 

 

The strangest thing is that it was working fine when I put the site live. Then it just vanished. If you still have the login details you can pop in and have a check. Would appreciate the help.

Thanks

Got it sorted I think. Found an area I hadn't looked in and set the page layout on the blog page. Can ou check back and see if your still getting the security warnings. Have word fence installed, turn own the security a little.

Thanks

Hi Keith

 

Sidebar is working now - http://screencast.com/t/UNS9vgTQMId

 

I've checked all the pages and gone in to each a couple of times, no blocking messages appeared. All seems good :-)
