    This all started with me adding a big block of nasty code to the add to header on the Genesis settings page.

    Now the settings page has a widget title , the site completely lost all of its styling, widgets aren’t showing up on the pages, and settings. I have tried to replace the framework files, reset the settings, and the template files but it did nothing.

    I think the oddest part is that the settings page now has the title of one of my widgets. Something is corrupt how do I get out of it.

    I tried resetting the genesis settings that did nothing. Everything including the footer is not styled right.

    I had a backup of the functions.php and the css files. Replaced those and still no fix. Then I tried replacing virtually every file with ftp Still no fix.

    Could adding the file corrupted my database? Where might it also be?

    Thanks.

    Yes. It may have caused a problem in your DB. Do you have a DB backup?

    Was it Javascript?

    Have you deleted and then re-installed a fresh copy of Genesis?

    Hi Brad.
    Yeah I think it might have been JS. I was trying to figure out .csstransitions.

    Didn’t think it would be so easy to corrupt the db through add to header.
    I did delete Genesis and reinstall.

    I have a copy of database but it’s not that fresh. The site loads so I can copy and paste the content in all the widgets. Any suggestions to make this lesson painful.

    Thanks.
