Support » Fixing WordPress » Background color won't change, posts won't display full text (fresh and clean)

  • I am attempting to make some tweaks to an installation of the Fresh and Clean theme here and am running into several problems.

    The first is the background color. I tried to change this in the dashboard settings but the site would not effect the change. Instead, I changed manually in the stylesheet.

    Second, I created a “Blog” page and then deleted it but the link is still appearing in the navbar and shouldn’t be. I tried recreating the page and deleting again but I can’t get it to delete the link. Where can I manually delete this in the pages?

    Lastly, I’m trying to display the full text (including pictures) version of posts on the homepage but when I adjust accordingly in the Reading->Settings, no go. Just like the background settings.

    I’m not sure what’s up with this theme but it feels like it’s just not working properly and would appreciate some help with codebending. Thanks in advance for any help, I’m getting so frustated with this.

    1. Your Fresh & Clean Theme is outdated and the index.php file is badly edited and possibly not compatible with your WP version.
    2. Instead of creating a child theme, you made extensive modifications and customizations to the parent theme.

    Possibly these can be the reasons.

    Revert to the WP default theme and check whether you face the problems.

    Thank you very much for your response. I am attempting to help a friend who was struggling with this site and I was hoping not to have to start from scratch. Nonetheless, thank you for the advice. I will re-install the theme and move forward with a child theme. Is this the most recent version of this theme? I’m afraid I’m not sure where to verify this.

    I installed a second version of this theme from this link and used that as the template instead and still had the first two problems that the current iteration of the theme has. I’m going to try again and I’ll post my results.

    Again, thank you for your help. I’m still learning javascript and php so it’s much appreciated.

    I replaced the current theme with a re-uploaded “Fresh and Clean” theme with a child theme in place where I made edits.

    One change I made which was to remove from the page.php <h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1> – that is back in the template now. I would like to remove it though I don’t believe I can do so in the child theme and will need to remove it from the page.php correct? I do not want a redundant page title.

    I am still experiencing issues with the background color not changing via settings (only manually through style.css) as well as the summary/full text display on the homepage for posts. When I select ‘full text’ display, I still only see the summary.
