WordPress plugin doesn’t work after changing theme
I recently changed one of my WordPress blog theme to Chris Magiera’s Baloon theme. It is beautiful. The slight issue was, none of the plugins I want to use like Facebook nor Google Analytics work. This is where the head scratching starts.
After looking through the theme files; In this case, the solution for me was to add a missing call to wp_footer().
Chris’s Balloons theme forgot to call that function which most plugin relies on to inject the code they need to get the functionality to work.
So the fix is simply to:
- login to wp-admin
- Go to Appearance\Editor
- find footer.php
- add <?php wp_footer(); ?> before </body>
