Hi
I am a new user to word press and seem to have developed a strange problem. I am using v4.1 together with the x theme. Up until last night all was going well, then I installed the SEO by yoast and have lost all references to header.php when I go into appearance->editor. The file is not listed for that template. I am at a complete loss and cannot see why installing this plugin would cause this problem. Can anyone help with this? Many thanks

WP v4.1

Theme Name: X
Theme URI: http://theme.co/x/
Author: Themeco
Author URI: http://theme.co/
Description: An immensely powerful and endlessly customizable WordPress theme.
Version: 2.4.0

SEO by yoast plugin

If you remove Yoast's plugin, does the header come back?

Otherwise, because this is a paid theme you should have access to support there.  Since I can't install the theme to look at how it's constructed it makes troubleshooting harder.

I have removed the plugin, but the problem still remains. Being a new user to wordpress, how can a header just disappear? What would be the best way to trouble shoot this. Thanks

Can you FTP to the site and check the /wp-content/themename/ folder to see if header.php is there?  If not, grab the original theme, unzip the archive and upload header.php back to the site.
