The admin bar suddenly disappeared from the front end side of my site. It is present and works alright at the backend. I thought it could be due to some plugin so I deactivated them one by one and checked . Now all the plugins are deactivated and the admin bar is still missing...My theme does have the wp_footer() in footer.php. What is it that I am missing?

Might be one of 3 things (since you verified a wp_footer)

  1. you set it to not show in your user profile
  2. a plugin you installed has a Confliction with it
  3. you created a php / js code which produces errors in your wp_footer

Course of action:
1. Check you personal user profile backend to see you haven't turned it off
1. turn off all plugin (rename plugins folder temporarily)
2. Activate wp-config errors display on (and check for errors)
- Response to this & fix errors.

Hope this helps get to the root of the problem... Basiclly these
are steps to be taken before asking a question so we could have the
additional information incase this does not solve you issuse.

Best of luck, Sagive

  • I should have checked this before..Silly on my part...It was set not to be shown in the user profile as you pointed out. Seems like the plugin I was using to enable front end posting had set that option off. Thanks! Nov 29, 2012 at 6:39
