Common WordPress Errors & How to Fix Them

WordPress is an amazingly stable platform thanks to the dedication and talent of the hundreds of professionals contributing to it, and the strict code standards they follow. Even so, the huge variety of themes, plugins and server environments out there make it difficult to guarantee nothing will ever go wrong. This guide will help you pinpoint and fix common WordPress problems users encounter, quickly, and without being a WordPress guru.

Before You Begin

Step 1 – Many solutions involve editing, deleting or updating files in your WordPress install. Make sure you have an FTP client you are comfortable using, and a text editor capable of showing syntax highlighting for HTML and PHP.

Step 2 – Determine where to start: Can you see an error message or is the problem more vague?

Jump to quick answers to the following common errors:


Theme is missing the style.css stylesheet

stylesheet error

This message is caused by the theme you are trying to install having an incorrect file structure, the stylesheet actually being missing, or the theme not being a theme at all.

May Wisdom and the knowledge you gained go with you,
