Frustrated! Filesystem problem. Please help!

Post by fem07 »

I am really frustrated. I just want to work on my css files offline and upload them afterwards.
In ACP I want to configure Styles>Themes to be stored in the filesystem and NOT in the db!

I use Prosilver and everytime when I try to change that setting in details and press submit, it says
"Theme details successfully updated." But it doesnt update. The themes are still stored in the database instead of the filesystem.

Please help!!! :(

yes... did that too.
But still it the change to filesystem fails. It simply swaps back to the db.. *sigh*

I just heard that it was reported as a bug, but seems not to be fixed. At least not with the "themes-part". I will simply delete everything from the server and try to reinstall :cry: ... maybe I should first configure the write-to-filesystem thingy and then starting uploading stuff. Just a gamble. If it works, I will post it here.

installed new.. nothing changed. I actually hoped to prevend that I must clear caches and stuff everytime I edit and upload my css or pages. I only heard about 1 solution for this...

uploading the stylesheets.css together with the changed files. I will try this out.
Hopefully this bug will be fixed in future.

Thanks for help anyway.

*edit*
Found this in the bug report section:

just in case someone else gets frustrated... ;)
