Tutorial: How to Fix Missing WordPress Post Titles
Just of recent, Earlier 27th of September, 2017, at 4:54AM, i was publishing Daily Devotionals on Our Christian Entertainment Website, Which also i Publish as many kind of Articles, Like that of Marriage, Gospel Music, Gospel Music Lyrics, Gospel Music Videos, Downloads, Events, Concerts, Interviews, Artistes Biography, News And International News Etc.
After i successfully Published a Post, and i decided to view it and see how it looks in the post single page, and as the page loads successful, i tried to scroll down and my Mouse Hover to a wrong place, which took me to the Mega Menu at the Header of the Website, and i discovered that Some Mega Menus are not showing Post Title on them.
Looking at the above screen-shot image, you will noticed that, the area i highlighted red right angle box, is not showing the post title.
Also take a look in this image and you will notice three things at a time, here, the image at the left side, is not showing post title and while the image at the right side is showing post title, and also look through at the post title, and you will notice that, the post title has some error on them, by displaying a box like question mark [?], that is another problem too. but read on, we will resolve it now.
In a nutshell, i became to contused in my heart at that moment and also I became confused too, because i do not know what to do, and i tried deleting my Mysql Database And Restore my Old Database to the website, but the issue was not resolved. So i Contacted My Host at Namecheap, and they told me that:
“I’m sorry, this issue is not in our hands or skills to help, that i should contact my Website Developer, to rsolve the issue for me, that they can only help me with Server End Problems”
So with they above statement of my hosting provider, i thought all hope is lost, i decided to also contact my Indian Friend, Who is Also a Developer, to Assist me, Though he never have a time to solve the issue, because at the time i contacted him, he is so busy working on a client project of his. But to say, i did not lose any of my hope of fixing the problem, but to be sincerely, this is an urgent issue that needs to be treated immediately, to avoid bad SEO Ranking of Our Website.
At the end of every ideas i brought out to resolve the issue, no one could favor me,i became so tired and heavy headache, because of my deep thinking about the problem. why are my thinking? the reason i am thinking, is that i don’t want anyone to fix it, i want to fix it myself, that i may share the knowledge as i’m doing now!
