Hello out there!
So I’ve made a very small change to style.css on ftp server to a theme being used for homepage. I used firebug to see where the change needed to be made, and everything looks great there. So I go to the file system, pull off style.css, make the edit, changed file permissions (644->777), and overwrite the old file. Then I go to the website (commair.biz) and the change is not apparent. So I go to wordpress and check out style.css through the editor, and nothing is different at all. Same code as before I started. So I went back to the file system (using FileZilla) and double checked everything. I AM editing the right theme’s style.css. I DID change file persmissions, and the file IS overwritten correctly in the file system.
Can anyone tell me why wordpress is refusing to recognize the change?
I would copy and paste it right in to wordpress editor but it has that message about needing to change the file permissions and checking out the codex. I know I’m editing the right style.css because the one I pulled off the file system is identical to the one wordpress editor shows me but wont allow me to change (frustrating) and identical to the one firebug pulls up and allows me to edit on the fly.
Also I have cleared all my browser caches and even tried pulling up the page and wordpress editor on different machines so I’m quite sure this isn’t a caching issue.
Please help a wordpress n00b!
If anyone wants to check out what im trying to do the website is commair.biz and the owners want the “A” “B” and “C” grey circles below the picture frame completely gone. I’m attempting to simply go into the styles.css and change their display: to “none”. This works awesome in firebug but we all know getting firebug on the fly edits to work the way they should is not always a trivial task.
