I'm new to wordpress so this could be a known problem with an obvious solution but i can not find anything on the subject so far..!
The situation is if i am in the appearance tab and select a new theme within the page it takes you with a theme preview i can not 'save & publish' the button looks like it may do something for a fraction of a second with a swirly thing but nothing happens. the 'cancel' button works fine.
A very similar problem i have is within a theme customisation area called epanel - elegant themes, if I make any changes and press save, the save just swirls for as long as i leave it with nothing happening.
I have reinstalled wordpress, and the themes, tried other themes and so far can not make any changes to anything. writing posts and uploading images is fine most of the time!
If anyone has any ideas or can point me in the right direction thanks in advance!!
