I recently took contol of a clients website and have been slowly cleaning it and bug fixing. Most everything has been corrected, but there is one item I can not seem to figure out...and it is important.
The theme is Agent 3.0, now owned by Studiopress. (They won't help as the original designer and theme purchaser is gone and left no contact info.)
The limited, yet important, theme options will not save. For example, it asks how many posts to show on the front page, I input 3 and hit save, and it resets to 1. I have attempted to edit theme-options.php to reset what event the defaults should be, but nothing changes.
Other theme elements will save. I can change the header, footer, widgets, etc. The theme options will not save nor change.
A Cache program was affecting theme updates until disabled, but that didn't fix the options problem.
I have no idea what the next step in trouble shooting would be. I did attempt to replace the theme with a previously backed up version, but the same problem arises.
Any help would be appreciated.
