Blank Blog Screen

The question:

I have a problem with my blog. When you view it on desktop, the page looks fine.
Blank Blog Screen
However, if you view the “Customize” page, it looks like this:

And on mobile, the blog looks blank as well. Can you help me?

The Solutions:

Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.

Method 1

Your mathjax script tag isn’t closed properly:

<script type="text/javascript" id="MathJax-script" async
  src="[email protected]/es5/tex-chtml.js">
<body ... >

This means that the </head>, and the <body> and all of your page content is treated as text inside the <script> tag until you hit the </script> from your document.body.classList.remove("no-js");, and lost. (If you view page source in your browser you should be able to see this: the tags after your MathJax-script tag have no syntax highlighting.)

I don’t know where that <script> tag came from but you should generate add a </script> close tag after it to close it properly.

<script type="text/javascript" id="MathJax-script" async
  src="[email protected]/es5/tex-chtml.js"></script>
