Theme edit not showing up

Post by Pumpkinpatch345 » Tue Jan 12, 2016 6:12 pm

Hello. I am currently using the theme Ariki, which comes in different colors. I use a default theme for my whole forum, but there are these 4 forums which i selected another theme as default (another color). I edited the css theme from the ACP Panel to play with other colors, and the edit result only showed up for me as site admin. Other people in the user group or moderator group werent seeing the changes either. Two days passed and now not even me as site admin see the changes. I tried to manually change the CSS file via FTP but it doesn't show changes either.
I already refreshed the theme and purged the caché, but nothing works.

Tnks for the help.

please show us the exact edits you made to the css files and exactly which files you edited.

did you also go back and refresh your theme from the admin panel styles tab after you made the changes and uploaded the file back to the server?


did you also refresh your browser properly?

and last but not least, did you ask for support from themeforest where you bought this style?

I went to the styles component tab in the ACP, selected theme. Then i changed all of the:
background-color:
Then saved, but the new color isn't showing up.
I tried also to the the exact thing, but to the colours.css doc in the theme directory of the style trough ftp, but it isn't showing up either.

details please.

show us the exact edits you made to the file.

tell us the exact filename and path of the file you edited.

it should be this file:

styles/yourstylename/theme/colours.css

you must download that file to your computer.

use ONLY a real text editor ( not notepad or wordpad or word or dreamweaver etc. ) something like notepad++ or editpad lite.


make your edits, save the file, using ftp upload back to the correct place where you got it.

go to admin panel, styles tab,
on the left, click on theme
on the right, click on "refresh" for your style.

refresh your browser f5 key

and, once again, if this does not work, you need to ask for support where you bought the style.

if it was a phpbb problem these steps would work as long as you follow them exactly.
