Support » Theme: Sunspot » Did WP3.8.1 break SunSpot 1.1?

  • Resolved Zuke


    I simply updated WordPress to the newest version and now the theme isn’t working. I had to make some edits to the theme itself (each category has it’s own theme), but it was working before I did this.

    That is what it looks like now. All other themes are still working.

    Hi there, Sunspot is working fine for me on WP 3.8.1, and I don’t see any obvious problems on your site linked above. Could you be more specific about exactly what isn’t working?

    Have you tried it with an unedited/default copy of Sunspot?

    It looks fine to you? I don’t THINK it’s just my browser, but I’m seeing everything on the left, running down the entire length (instead of being in a left sidebar and right content area). The background is gone, and most my formatting is missing too. All I’m left with is a gray background.

    Can you clear your browser’s cache?

    This is how it looks to me right now. This is not how it’s supposed to look. Is this not how it looks to you?

    I have now tried this on multiple browsers on multiple computers. If it’s a caching issue, it’s higher up than my personal network here.

    This is what I see in Firefox 26:

    Chrome 32:

    Based on your screenshot, it looks like your stylesheet isn’t loading at all.

    Have you tried viewing your site from another location/ISP?

    That’s really weird. I just ran a request on and it looks fine there as well.

    Something is up with my ISP then and just happened to occur at the exact same time as I upgraded to 3.8.1

    Hope it gets sorted soon.

    OK, in case anyone else is interested in how I fixed it for me (still not entirely sure what happened).

    I use Cloudflare to provide a backup site of sorts when my site has a glitch. Doesn’t happen often but when it does it’s weird. It also acts as a cache for people to increase site performance and help my sever out.

    Some combination of what my host was doing, in combination with my ISP and Cloudflare caused all sorts of issues. And was only doing it to that ONE theme. Weird.

    Restarted my VSP and purged my Cloudflare cache, and voila it worked. Again, NO idea why it was only happening to me.

    Glad you’re all set, and thanks for reporting back.
