    Hi there,

    I was changing the required colors to my website by going through the css stylesheet in the editor. Perhaps, the change is not persisting into my website and is showing the same boring colors! :-/ Help me! What to do?

  2. Without knowing what the theme is or what you did exactly it's difficult for us to provide you with specific help.

    Also keep in mind that editing a theme's orignal style.css file isn't a good idea. Try using custom CSS plugin or create a child theme instead.

    For now try confirming that your changes are in the files you've edited and then clear your browser's cache and cookies. Once you've done that revisit your site again and see of the changes are there.

    For Debugging
    1.Clear your browser cache.
    2.use firebug or chrome developer tool.
    2.open your website in private browser window

    In addition to what Jan Dembowski said.

    Are you using any kind of caching plugin?
    If yes, clear cache from it.

    Are you using any CDN service?
    If yes, make sure to pull the edited file again.

    @Jan - I already have cleared browser caches. Nothing changed so far I am currently using Morgan Theme on genesis framework.

    @Ravinder - I already have cleared browser caches. Nothing changed so far. I can see, that the script, which I have changed in css, is not even persisting at the time of using firebug!

    @Aditya - I am using W3 Total Cache, and have already cleared it. And is not changing.

  7. First: how and where did you make that CSS change? A link showing us what/where you've made changes would help.

    Also try deactivating your W3TC plugin and repeat the clear browser cache and cookies one more time. The caching could be on the server side and deactivating that plugin should stop that from happening.

    @Jan - I made the changes in stylesheet.css, with the help of firebug.I just changed the background color of menu-bar, but is not reflecting into the website. Okay, I am deactivating W3TC plugin and will repeat the process.

  9. That's good but what I was really hoping to see was a link like this.

    http://blog.dembowski.net/wp-content/themes/mostlyharmless-elemin/style.css

    That's the link to my installation's child theme style.css and I'm just posting it as an example. If you can't or don't want to share a link that's fine but it will hamper you getting support here.

    Keep in mind that the Genesis theme framework is commercially supported. You can post in that forum; that's part of what you paid for when you purchased that theme.

    Hey @Jan, Thanks :) It's done!! Should I re-activate that plugin now?

  11. Sure, it can't hurt. ;)

    What it looks like happened was that Aditya Pandey got it on the first try. Your changes were made but the server was still caching the old version. By deactivating the plugin you made sure the cache was no longer presented to the browser.

    Now that those changes are live you can re-activate that W3TC plugin.

    Yeah yeah!
    I am Smart. :D

    BTW Jan, off-topic, I wasn't getting mail when OP was posting. But you posted I got a mail. What's wrong with mailing?

  13. *Jan sends pat on the back to Aditya Pandey* ;)

  14. BTW Jan, off-topic, I wasn't getting mail when OP was posting. But you posted I got a mail. What's wrong with mailing?

    The OP was getting picked up by the spam filter (it happens, moderators clear that queue out). When I released the posts it didn't send a notification but my own posts it did notify you.

    @Jan, Yeh You're right! that would become difficult for me,if I am not sharing it here. But the fact is, I am working on a website, need to do some changes, as I was asked to do so!. So I can't reveal it here!

    Anyways, a big Thanks for the solution! I am playing with this more. Hoping, no more problems. Questions asked may be silly! :-/
