Jul 26, 2019 | Support, Wordpress

Most of the solutions you will find on this subject is that there is a missing footer code but if you are also unable to load the theme customizer, let do it the other way around.

1. Check your Website URLS

Go to your WordPress Settings > General and make sure that your WordPress Address (URL) and your Site URL are a exact match.

3. Missing Footer code?

Got to your theme’s footer.php file using a FTP client or in the WordPress Dashboard, go to Appearance > Theme Editor > find your footer file to check.

Look if you see the <?php wp_footer(); ?> code. It should be in the line just above the </body> tag. If it’s not there, past it, save and check if you can see your admin bar.
