    I turned off my plugins to download a file for disqus. Then when I turned them on again, the custom css I put in the custom css file for Magazine Pro was gone. So I went to see what happened and the drop down option under Appearance is gone. This was weird. How do I get it back without losing all the work I’ve done?

    The Appearance section now only lists (themes, customize, widgets, menus, header and editor … no custom CSS option)

    Thanks!

    I would have to say it has something to do with that file you downloaded it might be causing a conflict with one of your plugins.


    To speed up the process please post the link to the website in question.

    Check to make sure you have activated all of the plugins. The Custom CSS isn’t typically in there unless you are using a theme that provides it or you have a plugin that put it there.

    Thank you both but I didn’t insert the Custom CSS menu. It came with the Magazine Pro theme (which I still have installed. Haven’t deleted anything).

    As for the downloaded file, I didn’t do anything with it to my site. I downloaded the file to my hard drive and then exported it to Disqus (on their site) so they could import my comments into the Disqus system (i.e. I didn’t upload the file to my site so why it would cause the Custom CSS menu item to disappear doesn’t make any sense).

    Note: I’m obviously not a techie, but I’ve never seen a menu item disappear when deactivating plugins. And yes, I’ve activated all the plugins that were activated before the Disqus process (they were only “off” for two minutes).

    I’ve also closed down my browsers and restarted them to make sure it wasn’t a browser problem. Just weird.

    Let me install it on my demo and see what’s going on. Be right back.

    I just installed Magazine Pro and the Custom CSS doesn’t show up in the Appearance section for me. So I am thinking you have a plugin that provided that or it was a previous theme. Can you provide a screenshot of your plugins page?

    Thanks! I went to your site to send you a screen shot but didn’t see where to upload an image of what I’m seeing. Is there a way to do that?

    Note: Anita and I solved it. When I deactivated the plugins, it deactivated Jet Pack. When I noticed that Jet Pack wasn’t working, I reconnected it with WordPress and everything came back. So if anyone else loses their Edit CSS menu option under Appearance, check to make sure your Jet Pack is connected to WordPress. Phew! Thanks Anita and Rob!

    But I have to say – you did a great job on your website. It looks good.

    Aw, shucks! You’re making me blush :-)

    Thanks!

    P.S. It’s taking me a little longer to figure out the Genesis process since they don’t have a dashboard like Woothemes to make changes to the site (like type/font sizes, widget bar colors, image sizes etc.). But I really like the clean look of Magazine Pro. So, I’m sure I’ll be a fan at some point. It’s just a bigger learning curve for us non-techies. For example, I’d like to add the post navigation section to the bottom of my home page (like you have on your site), but I tried adding the code from Genesis to the functions.php file (my first attempt at that) and it crashed my site. I had to have the tech support at http://www.site5.com go in and fix that for me. So, I’m a little skittish about making changes to the functions.php file :-), even though I’d like that function on my site. At Woothemes, it would just be a check box. At Genesis, it’s a functions.php change. That’s the difference.

    Oh, if you need help with going in there, drop me a line. If the site blows up… let me know, I can walk you through it. I am using blogs only on my home page so that’s why the post navigation is at the bottom. If I added the widgetized home page I wouldn’t have those there.

    Got it! And I’ll take you up on it when I get up the courage to try it again :-)

    Hope you have a great rest of your weekend!
