I need help please. Whenever I pour my chocolate ganache on my cake,it keeps falling off the sides and does not cover the whole cake. Am I doing something wrong???

I have taken a spatula and helped it along. You can also pour it around the edge of the cake to help it coat the sides better.

Yep, I have also used a spatula to coax it into place, as well as tipping the cake slightly to encourage it to go where I want. I also sit greaseproof paper under the cake which is sat on a cooling rack then you can scrape up the ganache which has dripped off and drizzle around the edges where there are gaps.

Make sure its not cooled too much.. otherwise pour lightly around the edge of the cake, then pour the top. I have also known people who wait until its completely cool and then ice like you would butter cream.
