    I have installed enfold with WP3.6 and found that when I make changes ( Enfold >> Styling ) to things like the footer background colour the Main Content background colour it does not always take effect. Sometimes I can make one change but not a second. ie if I change something to blue it works fine but if I then change it to green, it remains blue.

    I have:

    1. Cleared cache (even checked changes on other computers)

    2. Loaded a second version on the same server (different directory and db) but with WP3.5

    I have not tried changing any CSS or installing a child theme.

    Some server details:

    cPanel Version 11.38.1 (build 15)

    Apache version 2.2.25

    PHP version 5.3.26

    MySQL version 5.1.63-cll

    Architecture i686

    Operating system linux

    Perl version 5.8.8

    Kernel version 2.6.18-408.8.2.el5.lve0.8.61.3

    cPanel Pro 1.0 (RC1)

    Cheers

    More information:

    I still have not been able to get it to work on the above server but I loaded an example of it onto a 1and1 account and it works fine with both WP3.5 and WP3.6.

    Is it perhaps a compatibility issue with PHP? I don’t know much about these things but is there maybe something I need to put into a .htaccess file?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Please increase the wordpress php memory limit, edit wp-config.php then add this code:

    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');

    You can ask your host to do it for you.

    Regards,

    Ismael

    I have now tried upping the memory limit in wp-config.php but the problem is still there.

    It seems like I can change the bg-colour of something like the footer once but then cannot change it again for a day or two. Enfold>>Styling>>Footer

    (eddited to add) I haven’t tried many other settings/changes so don’t know if the problem also happens in things like font or layout changes.

    I have also re-checked that it is not a caching issue.

    Hi Grow,

    Try going to your wp-content>uploads folder and changing the chmod permissions on the files the theme creates there. The styles you set are all saved to the css file so if the file/folder isn’t writable then it wouldn’t be able to actually stick.

    Regards,

    Devin

    Thanks for the help.

    Uploads is currently on 755. What should it be, 775?

    #134904

    Try everything up to 777. It shouldn’t need it, but I’ve run across some servers that do.
