Support » Theme: Ambition » ‘Ghosts’ of ambition remain

  • I am working on a new blog, and haven’t decided on which theme to use yet. For a while, I have been working with the free version of the Ambition theme, but have decided to explore other themes. Them problem is, after I switch to twentyseventeen-child, the colophon still appears to be a truncated version of Ambition, complete with a link to Theme Horse. I have an entirely new style.css (copied from twentyseventeen), and my functions.php does link to twentyseventeen. I have cleared my cache several times, both on my Mac and my hosting server. Also, in my dashboard, when I go to Appearance/Customize, I’m told that I am customizing twentyseventeen child, but my customize options are still Ambition. I’m not sure exactly what I did wrong, but I could use some help here.

    I am running WordPress 4.9.5 hosted through HostGator. My browser is Firefox 59.0.2 (64-bit), running on OSX 10.11.6.

  • An update:

    I was using ambition, and had completely changed themes from ambition to twentyseventeen. My style.css and functions.php sheets had no mention of the ambition theme in them whatsoever. Then, I changed themes to PureMag, again with entirely new style.css and functions.php sheets. All of my previous problems went away. Problem solved, even though I’m not sure what happened to begin with…
