Ok, i'm driving myself freakin crazy!!!
I've been doing minor edits here and there today but for the last 4 hours or so have been fighting with this problem. I can make any minor or radical changes to my stylesheet (stye.css within my theme) and NOTHING HAPPENS!!!
for example, I just commented out the background image yet it still shows up. On multiple computers and multiple browsers.
I don't know where to begin troubleshooting this. Something is wrong, i must be stupid...please help. :(
