    Hi Guys, I'm Joan the woner of http://www.machomax.com

    Recently I changed my site theme and unistalled W3TC. And now I'm seeing an error. When I'm logged in I can see the new theme (WPZoom's Splendid) but when I visit the site as a normal visitor the site has no format on the Homepage and in some post/pages.

    On the error pages the site is using an old theme that I had (http://themeforest.net/item/lightly-magazine-wordpress-theme/2583570)

    See here: http://imgur.com/a/4FDUr

    I tried with other themes including the default one's but the error continues.

    A fellow WP forum member checked my site CSS and this is what he found:

    W3 Total Cache Error: some files appear to be missing or out of place. Please re-install plugin or remove /home/machomax/public_html/wp-content/w3tc/min.

    Then I installed the W3TC and the problem was gone. Why this happens and how can I solve it?

    Pd.: Right now the W3TC plugin is installed that's why the CSS is fine at this moment.

    Make sure when it uninstalls that it's removing the W3TC blocks of code from the site's .htaccess file.

    And how do I do this?

    I had the same problem. The comment above you is the right solution. Go into your Htaccess folder within your hosting root.

    look for anything below #start W3tc (caching type browser as an example) and before the #end w3tc comment. Remove all those w3tc lines of code - refresh your cache and you should be good
