without seeing page.php and sidebar.php I can only guess is, there maybe an issue with the class names. When you click the button in the dev tools do you see the class active being applied to the div?

for sure, look now it's getting creepy, the off canvas button used to appear at the right side and not to work, but now does not appear and i have it on the page.php and the sidebar.php, here is the page.php

sidebar.php (sorry this is theme.js)

jQuery(document).ready(function ( $ ) { 
    $('[data-toggle=offcanvas]').click(function () {
        $('.row-offcanvas').toggleClass('active');  
    });
});

page.php

<?php get_header(); ?>

    <div class="container" role="main">

        <div class="row row-offcanvas row-offcanvas-right">

            <div class="col-md-9">
                <p class="pull-right visible-xs">
                    <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary btn-xs offcanvas-control" data-toggle="offcanvas">Sidebar <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-resize-horizontal"></span></button>
                </p>
                <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

                    <div class="page-header">   
                        <h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
                    </div>


                    <?php the_content(); ?>

                <?php endwhile; endif; ?>

            </div>

            <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

        </div>

    </div>

<?php get_footer(); ?>

Okay, its cool. Here is a plugin I always use when developing its called: Show Current Template. this plugin will show you what file is being displayed. ie. page.php, post.php front-page.php its super helpful. this might of been a copy and paste typo but you have the jQuery inside of the the sidebar.php file. That might cause errors if true. to debug this there are several options you can do. First inside of page.php inside the div col-md-9 just write the words TEST and see if its appearing on the page in the browser. I prefer to use the plugin I mentioned earlier to see what files are being used. This way you can see if page.php is in use. If the button is gone, and should be ie at the correct media query check and make sure the site is pulling in page.php.

sorry i made it wrong and now i realize that i didn't posted the sidebar.php oh my god how awkward, now look this is the sidebar.php

<div class="col-md-3 sidebar sidebar-offcanvas">
    <?php if ( ! dynamic_sidebar( 'page' ) ): ?>
    <h3>Widget Setup</h3>
    <p>Please add widgets to the page widget to have them display here</p>
    <?php endif; ?>
</div>

im gonna try the plugin and then i'll catch you thank you

One suggestion is to clear your cache. I've been having some problems with the local host I'm using and it is not always picking up changes to my CSS. You could have something lingering in your cache that is causing the page to reload from a cached page. Right now I often have to clear my cache multiple times before certain changes show up. Just a thought and painless to try.

thank you, i already tried, and it just disappeared, i'm recovering my steps through each video to check that everything does work properly
