I have lost the Edit Mode

Hi All, I have have lost the Edit Mode and its tool bar is not there!!!

Here is in details what happen: I was trying to get rid of the footer and modified directly the core file the footer.php file. When the footer bugged, I reversed the changes but lost the slideshow I did set up and when I log in, I have no Edit Mode and its tool bar is not there.

Can anyone help, please!

The footer.php is where the call to the javascript for the edit bar is contained.

make sure you have this at the closing of the footer:

<?php Loader::element('footer_required'); ?>

the loader has to come before the close of the body tag.
Then clear your site's cache and refresh you browser.

Hi, thanks for assisting me. I did reload yesterday the original footer.php file and my footer came back.The issue is that simultaneously the Edit Page, Dashboard AND a slider disappeared. See attached file

There are 2 common causes of this:

a) a JavaScript error that stops scripts executing. Use the developer console to see what script errors are occurring.

b) a php runtime error that stops php executing before the footer is rendered. Find the php error log for a list of errors, or - if you can get to the dashboard directly - turn on php error reporting from the dashboard debug settings section (Note, on 5.5 and 5.5.1 these settings are back to front, so you need to turn off for it to be on etc. I have heard rumour it was fixed in 5.5.2)

I'm not sure if this will help someone, but I had this problem, and it was after a migration because I had an image that was too large on a few pages. I had to replace it with a smaller one through the file manager. Everything after the too large image and the image would also not load.
