    I was changing some settings in the theme settings (propulsion) and when I saved the settings I got this error:

    The website encountered an error while retrieving It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.

    Here are some suggestions:

    Reload this webpage later.

    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

    From that point on my site was unavailable. I was able to get my site back up and running by changing the name of the theme-folder via FTP. I retried activating the theme but got the same problem, this was with propulsion and eunoia.

    I restored my root to an earlier back-up and everything worked again … until I tried to save some changes in the theme settings. I have never had this before with propulsion or corona and it is even with the new theme eunoia. So I am completely clueless at this point and would really like to start setting-up my site in the new theme.




    Please check your allocated memory value ( ). I’d set it to 128M because then you’re on the safe side even if you’re using many third party plugins, etc.


    I tried that, did not help. I also tried a clean wordpress and a clean theme install but all without success, until I decided to wipe the entire root folder and reinstall wordpress, then re-install the theme and afterwards re-adding my plugins and posts from my back-up. And now the site is back up and running. I don’t know what exactly caused the problem but I know it happened simultaneously with saving changes in the theme-framework of both propulsion and eunoia. But a said now it saves without a problem and site is back up and running.

    Another question is it possible to write something in the custom.css saying that it should not overwrite layout.css when a mobile device is browsing the site?


    Yes, you can use css media queries – i.e. following code:

    @media only screen and (min-width: 768px) {

    would just affect screens with a minimum resolution of 768px – you can change/adjust this value and set it to eg 1024px, etc.
