Admin Bar Missing From WordPress Website Front End
If you’ve worked with WordPress before you’ll know that when logged into a WordPress back-end, a bar will appear at the top of the website when viewing the public facing site. The admin bar allows the logged in user quick access to perform common tasks and looks omething like so:
Whilst recently building a new WordPress theme I ran into a situation where the website appeared fine, but I had a blank area where the admin bar should have been appearing.
Fortunately the fix was an easy one. The problem was the result of the functions
wp_footer() missing from header.php or footer.php respectively in the theme files. After ensuring that these two functions were present the admin bar appeared as expected.
