Thank you for responding, I had ATOM opened, but Chrome also allows you to make changes & you can save & upload those files to the proper folders. Sorry-- prob should have clarified that a bit better. Not long after I posted this, it somehow fixed itself. Then I, fixed the background issue. There's still a few other kinks i've noticed, so I'm hoping to figure those out as well. I appreciate the help.
Yes, I had even checked my cpanel to make sure I hadn't accidentally reuploaded prosilver's (which I hadn't) oddly enough (maybe an hour after I had posted this) I logged back in for the 25th time and FINALLY the changes appeared in Chrome. The changes prior had first appeared inside Edge. This also happened last night, so I'm a bit stumped by that. There are still a few more kinks i've noticed--- but I believe they may be related to an ext I just installed earlier today called pgsocial network. Again, I really appreciate the help you guys offer.
Thank you Robert! I will keep that in mind. For the most part, I only use ATOM (text editor similar to Notepad ++) with FTP and I see what you're saying. I won't edit from Chrome anymore. I'll only use it as a visual reference. I had it checked to automatically recompile stale style settings (which is helpful) and I figured out the issues I was having (with trying to add a background image, getting it to repeat properly, and modifying the colors) which I have done successfully so far (still working on perfecting it though) Great advice, and I hope others who see this will benefit from it too.Lumpy Burgertushie wrote: ↑Thu Dec 06, 2018 1:46 amif you want to edit the style files you need to actually edit the files. any other method will eventuallyl corrupt the whole mess.
use ftp only, download the relevant html/css files to your computer.
use a text editor ONLY to open/edit the files.
when finished, upload the edited file back to the server using ftp and let it overwrite the existing one.
you must purge the cache from the admin panel or, via ftp, delete every thing from the cache folder except for the index and htaccess files.
or, you can go to the admin panel, general tab, load settings, and check yes for "recompile stale style settings".
then you don't have to purge the cache after every change, just refresh your browser to see them.
if you adopt this procedure for making changes to the style it will make it a very quick and basically foolproof method of doing it.
Latest version of phpBB has in common.php 'PHPBB_ENVIRONMENT' with values "development" and "production" and if is set to "production" You have to logon with admin session and "Delete" the cache in ACP.
I am trying to change the color scheme, (links, hovers, tables, background, etc.) from prosilvers bluish theme to a color scheme that consists of blacks, reds, greys and warmer colors.
I just checked common.css and it was already set to "development", cleared the twigs manually via ftp and it's still showing up on Both Browsers (chrome & Edge) as the prosilver theme when I'm not logged into ACP-- I even tried clearing the cache from ACP and then doing another hard refresh (ctrl +F5) and it still shows up as prosilver...orynider wrote: ↑Fri Dec 07, 2018 7:19 pmLatest version of phpBB has in common.php 'PHPBB_ENVIRONMENT' with values "development" and "production" and if is set to "production" You have to logon with admin session and "Delete" the cache in ACP.
Or You can manually delete a twig in "cache/production/twig".
