Solved White screen of death

Post by Landshark October 25th 2021, 5:47 pm

My forum has a white screen that covers everything, and I'm not sure how to remove it or how it even happened.

The topic was posted in the wrong section, so I have moved it to the correct section.

After looking at the CSS, I can see this:
Code:
#modernbb (
    display: none;
    margin-top: 42px;
}
When I removed the display: none, I can see your forum.

You can log into the administration pane by adding this to your forum's link:  /admin

Sorry about posting in the wrong section
Added the code and still nothing. When I noticed the problem, it was after I added a widget but I deleted it from the Personal Widgets to see if the forum would reappear, and still got the white screen.

Do not add the CSS.  You need to remove it.

Ops, I misread. I deleted what I added, but I can't find the code that you said was causing the issue. Here's a copy of my CSS after removing the code I accidentally added when I read your response wrong - when I use the search to find it, it doesn't show the code you mentioned.

hello

somewhere in your css or templates or javascript you have set a display: none
this is causing the white screen

now to figure out where the mistake is you have to
- check the CSS
- if you have modified the templates , set them to default so if the issue is gone then the mistake is somewhere in the templates
- reactive the javascript so check if one of them is causing this conflict


meanwhile, if you add this to your CSS the white screen will be gone

Code:

#modernbb {
display: flex !important;
}


i also see some appearance issues on your homepage if you like help to fix them feel free to open a new thread i will be happy to help you
