Vantage full-width broken?

I’ve just noticed that two of my sites on the Vantage theme (Free 1.11) that WERE full-width are now narrow. The only thing that I think I’ve done recently is to change from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.2. Would that have any connection to this? Here are the sites:


Strangely, another site, also on Vantage 1.11 remains full-width:

Home Page

All 3 sites are part of a single multi-site.

Any insight you might have would be helpful!

    Hi David

    Thanks for posting. There is a block of styles in the header causing this. There is no ID added to the style block so I can’t say which plugin is outputting those styles. Temporarily deactivate all plugins not authored by SiteOrigin, you should find a working baseline from which you can test. Please, see below for the full test. Thanks :)


    This sounds like it could be a plugin conflict issue. Can you try disabling all non-SiteOrigin plugins and see if this fixes the issue? You’ll need to clear all your caches after disabling your plugins.

    If it does fix the issue, then try re-enabling your plugins one by one until the issue comes back. This procedure will help diagnose which plugin is causing the issue.

    Once we know that, we’ll be able to look at what might be causing the conflict and either solve the problem or help you find an alternative plugin.

    If you aren’t using a SiteOrigin theme, then you can also try temporarily switching to one of the default WordPress themes to see if the issue is theme related.

    Andrew, thanks for the clue – that helped.

    Here’s what really happened. It was a combination of two things and perhaps might help someone else in the same boat.

    1. I changed my PHP version and that made a plugin break. I remember seeing some “spilled code” on a page where the old plugin died and just barfed its code (it was Alpine PhotoTile for Instagram which hasn’t been updated in a loooooooong time and is no longer supported – i.e. my own fault for still using it.) So this was just “ugly” in that respect UNTIL the 2nd thing happened:

    2. I updated from WordPress 5.1.1 to 5.2 soon thereafter and WordPress decided to “clean up” that code “barfing” FOR me. The way it does it though, includes dumping a bunch of CSS from wp-includes/functions.php in function _default_wp_die_handler into my page. This is what borked up my site layout. When I deactivated the plugin, all was back to normal (other than the missing plugin functionality).

    So it WAS a plugin problem – sort of – but masked/compounded by a WordPress change that injected unexpected and unwanted CSS into my page.

    Anyway, thanks for the help and off to choose a new Instagram plugin!

    You can mark this SOLVED.

    Hi David, thanks for the detailed explanation of what happened, it’s most appreciated. I’m really glad to hear your sites are back to normal now :)
