Shapely Footer.php Got Deleted!

I went into my footer.php page and when I went back it was somehow completely deleted.

Not only is my footer gone, but now other widgets are not responding as they were prior.

Any help on how I can fix the issue would be greatly appreciated! I use the shapely theme by colorlib in Wordpress.

If needed, my website is

Thanks in advance!


Hello Connor

You have to download the theme from and upload only footer.php file on your server
You can also reinstall theme and but i suggest to try first method

When I download the theme and only upload the footer.php text I get this message:

“Unable to communicate back with site to check for fatal errors, so the PHP change was reverted. You will need to upload your PHP file change by some other means, such as by using SFTP.”

Any idea how to fix it or get around it?

hi Connor

You must upload file, not only the text, replace the footer.php file,
there is various ways to do this, form a hosting panel file browser, from FileZilla and so on
if you have problem with this question get in touch with your hosting support
