Smelly toliet

My toliet smells bad and the wife is not happy! The water level in the bowl is low. I think adjusting the water level fixes this, but would like some advice. Thanks.

Low water level in the bowl could be caused by several reasons, but try replacing the flapper first.
Adjust the chain to where it just allows the new flapper to close fully.
If the tank is full when you flush, it should fill the bowl to normal level.
If not, you may have a partial drain clog or partial clog in the vent pipe on the roof.
Good Luck!
