    How very interesting, I’m glad you got yours working too…it seems a chance succession of trials but once you can save things, then deletion into another plugin that does the same thing is the answer. Phew….

    yes…I did a procedure which may have helped or not…I activated an old theme, tried out the updated imported theme of the one I really want and use normally, which I found looked odd and had removed some useful controls, so I reverted back and re-imported my older theme which I prefer. I had by then already removed jetpack, which wasn’t the issue, as it didn’t control the customise area…

    I then removed a few plugins I was using like WP Optimiser, Simple Social icons and something else…I then noticed that it then saved the changes, no browser messages saying it wouldn’t save, but didn’t apply them, so that was progress. This meant I could then delete, or copy the css in the customise area, and paste it into the plugin I had downloaded called simple custom css. Altho, that didn’t yet apply any of my changes, what made the final difference was removing the duplicated css I had put into the css area provided by the theme itself, another area. After that the css now works properly…so what exactly it all was I don’t know. Because it all worked fine before I upgraded to WP4.7 but giving a shake up seemed to help all round. Technology eh! it’s the first time I’ve managed to find the fault myself…

    I think I have found the problem, I deleted a few plugins that I wasn’t using, but that wasn’t it…but then I deleted the same code put into the theme options css section, and that seemed to do it…now I can see a few colour changes only on the css section I made…so I Think I’ve solved it…! Which is a first all by myself…! Thanks for now I read the article but it sounds a bit advanced for me…I can recommend though using simple custom css as a plugin and avoiding using customise WP itself or any css space with the theme….!

    By chance it now seems to at last enable it to be removed and save it as it should, but if you put any new css to any of the plugins, simple css, neither removing it, nor editing css in the other plugin for css, makes any changes visible…so it’s not functioning properly.

    I said, I’ve done all that and the old css I put in frozen in, I cannot alter any of it, or remove it, or use any new plugin to change anything css….so what’s wrong with WP? I removed jetpack i case it was a fault there, no difference…I’ve explained…nothing works and if I can’t delete the old css, I can’t use anything new either.

    Thanks for that, it sounds a nuisance, I hate fiddling with plugin activations….and I love my theme. Hmmm… at least it good to know that neither Jetpack nor WordPress.org are charging anything for css control. Thanks for that.

    This is interesting to me. I am very cross to find after all updates, that my old CSS window is now tiny and narrow, and now no changes are saved, it appears they are, as it says ‘saved and published’, then the Chrome window says, ‘your changes may not be saved’ if you close the window/leave page. So this is now useless, so I deleted jetpack and have now used new plugins to replace what jetpack did. If there is any pressure to pay money for a feature that is supplied free by other plugins/bought themes, this is outright sharp practise. I now am stuck with a css code that is not even deletable, as the css editor is still there now I have deleted all jetpack plugin elements. What is going on? I want my css removed, so I can paste my code in another way, which is not frozen in.

    great, thanks for your prompt feedback, when I activate this I will try this, because I just want a theme that works it’s picture tools properly and I like the simple layout and the snazzy parallax header a bonus. And a keen theme author is such a help. I’m fine with some code and learned a lot with Expound theme too.

    Ah thank you, I rather thought it was the the Suits theme in the end as none of this has happened with other themes, jetpack or no jetpack all the image controls and metaslider worked fine. In .com this theme, doesn’t show thumbnails at different sizes or spread them nicely, and now I find in .org, the metaslider doesn’t resize and adapt to the format as it normally does. Nightmare theme! And I haven’t seen the designer reply on the forum yet.

    My second issue, another them issue perhaps, is that I tried to create a row of four images, each with a url link. I found that they were initially too big for the width of the page content and one went over onto the next line. So I resized them to fit manually. But then I found the links changed places, the last one repeated the link of the image prior to it, happened several times. So in the end I found this stopped when I started again and put the images in as is, with no resizing. Then the links stayed ok. Arrrgg!

    Also if you place links with media image inserts and resize them, after saving, the links change places with each other, did it twice, until I inserted images and didn’t resize them, then it worked ok. Odd. If this theme continues to be temperamental on basic functions I shall have to consider other themes for image heavy usage.

    also if the images are resized giving them a url link messes up, the link works but it changes the link to the previous image, did this twice, i found that using the image full size worked ok.

    ok it is a page I’ve created to show you, temporarily.

    They bunch together, which they don’t on my own thumbnails gallery.

    It does this on the Suits theme, on .com and .org. but its never happened before when I’ve used three other themes.

    I’m impatient for the Suits theme designer to get back cos I’m working with a client.

    I think it’s more Suits theme, as it’s both Suits and one is a .com site, so can’t use jet pack anyway, sorry if I wasted time.

    My own site is not Suits theme and works fine, it’s the media library page and art gallery on http://www.vanessawagstaff.uk all fine. But my clients sites both Suits theme, one .org and the other .com, one in process is http://www.patriciabarker.co.uk see gallery page, at the mo I’ve used 4 columns but it won’t do, but if I choose 2, it bunches into the middle far too close together. If Suits doesn’t fix it I shall use another theme. Any other format chosen and it doesn’t expound to change, it only shows a tiled mosaic which we don’t want.
