Support » Theme: Oxygen » CSS changes not showing up

  • Hi,

    I am making changes to my CSS and I dont think they are showing up. I was able to edit it before. I have a child theme and I want to change the .wrap to white. When I inspect the elements and mess with them in chrome the changes show up so I’m not sure why they wont on my own CSS.

    Any thoughts?

  • Sounds like maybe you have a syntax or other error in your CSS – try validating it –

    Sorry I’m new to CSS. Does that mean that the CSS im using isnt correct. When I enter it into the validator it says error, but I’m not sure what would be wrong with it. Here is what I am using below. Thanks for your help!

    .wrap {
    background-color: white;
    margin: 0 auto;
    max-width: 940px;
    padding: 0 30px;
    position: relative;

    That CSS is okay, some other error may be interfering with that working. Unfortunately, it’s really quite impossible to help with CSS without seeing the site live – can you post a link to your site?

    basically i want a white background behind all my content infront of the tiled image.
    Thanks again!

    Can you take down “coming soon” for a few minutes ;)?

    I used to have a coming soon page up and I just took it down so you can see but It looks like its still up. I’m not sure why that is either?

    …sorry about that.

    It was a plugin that I just uninstalled.

    Still up – looks like you have SuperCache enabled – which may also be why CSS changes aren’t working :). Clear that or deactivate it while you are working on the site.

    hmm not sure why it is still showing up. Would you recommend I delete the plug in all together? Or does it sometimes take awhile to show the changes?


    O! ok sorry for so many on going questions…

    I clicked the delete Cache button but that didnt seem to do anything. Is there something else I should do to clear it?


    Try deactivating both those plugins.

    That doesn’t seem to be working?

    i found these directions. Would you recommend trying all this?

    To manually uninstall:

    Turn off caching on the plugin settings page and clear the cache.
    Deactivate the plugin on the plugins page.
    Remove the WP_CACHE define from wp-config.php. It looks like define( ‘WP_CACHE’, true );
    Remove the Super Cache mod_rewrite rules from your .htaccess file.
    Remove the files wp-content/advanced-cache.php and wp-content/wp-cache-config.php
    Remove the directory wp-content/cache/
    Remove the directory wp-super-cache from your plugins directory.

    Actually I can’t even find those files on my hostserver… so nevermind.

    Make sure you clear your browser’s cache also. Some of the visual adjustments may be made by the function.php script that does certain image sizing and other things. Try adding a post after you make changes so things the scripts are rerun on the new content.

    YES! It’s working. thank you thank you!

    One last question. What good does the SuperCache plug in do? And since i deleted it if I have this problem in the future should I just clear my browsers cache.

    Thank you again!
