If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I was working on a CSS file, style2.css, saved it and uploaded it…clicked refresh in the browser and poof, the site looks like it reverted back to a fresh install of the theme. All default display images showing, none of the saved settings in the configuration are being read/displayed on the site. All the settings are still in the database, I can see them via phpmyadmin.
What could have happened? I’ve been using the site with this theme for over a year now and have been able to successfully edit the CSS and save/upload it many many times.
Is there something I can look for to see why the site is not getting the settings for the theme from the database?
What changes did you make in your style2.css file?
Depending on the code you added / modified here, this could affect the site regardless of the theme options. Can you post a link to your site?
If you change the style2.css file back to the original (whilst keeping a backup of the modified file) does this revert back to the site layout you have lost?
