Error message: Theme CSS would not download-What does it mean? (8 posts)

    I have a self-hosted WordPress site that I have had to customize by changing the 2011 theme's CSS code online. The company I work for won't give me access to FTP, so I can't created and upload a custom child theme.
    Because of that, I have been reluctant to update to a newer theme, thinking it would probably cause me to lose my changes.
    Anyway, I have recently begun to see the following error message when I go to my site:
    Fatal error: Theme CSS could not load after 20 sec. Please download the latest theme at http://galleria.io/customer/
    But everything else with my site appears to be fine.

    Does anyone know what the error message is referring to and if there is a way to make it go away without having to update to a newer theme?

    I just noticed another error message at the bottom of my website and I'm even more at a loss as to what this one means:
    Warning: Unknown: open(/var/php_sessions/sess_9a457c6ddfec61090e37c7ab66c58713, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) in Unknown on line 0 Warning: Unknown: Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/var/php_sessions) in Unknown on line 0

    Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated!
    Thanks.

    The first message comes from a plugin http://thecatchconservation.com/wp-content/plugins/slickr-flickr/galleria/galleria-1.2.9.min.js?ver=1.2.9

    You work for idiots but you probably know that.

    LOL! But I'm happy to be working! :)

    Thanks very much! The mention of Galleria threw me; I didn't realize it was connected with Slickr Flickr. That message went away when I upgraded the plugin.

    But the second error message is still there. Any ideas about that one?

    Try contacting your host and ask them to properly setup the php session.save_path and send them the errors you get there.
    The path is set to /tmp and /tmp has permissions 777. The tmp directory must be open so that scripts can write to it.

    I just tried deactivating Slickr Flickr temporarily, and the error message went away.

    Unfortunately, Slickr Flickr allows me to customize photo captions the way they want them and I haven't found another plug in that does quite the same thing.

    So I guess I need to contact Slickr Flickr's developer, but I'm not sure that will lead anywhere since I have to use the free version which doesn't include support.

    I don't suppose knowing that Slickr Flickr is at fault gives you any further clues about what I could do to get rid of the error message myself (besides turning off the plug in)?

    No. The only thing I know about plugins is how to enable and disable :^) The developer is your best chance. You might Google Slickr Flickr and find help.

    You also could use css in a child theme to make your captions like you want.
