    Would anyone know why I might be seeing this, suddenly?

    Thanks, if you can help! I’m mystified.

    Do you have a plugin installed for a custom style sheet?

    I noticed this yesterday on the first html5 enabled Genesis2.0 site after the update but didn’t have time to think too much about it. First thought was WordPress 3.6 update not Genesis. The site had been running WP 3.6 beta?

    Just checked and It’s not on other sites that have been updated (html5 or not)?

    The first is a very basic blog? Anyone?

    Update… it’s also the only site running Jet Pack.
    Disable Jet Pack and problem solved.
    Doesn’t explain the why but always good to understand the what.

    A pro graphic designer did my child theme, and now I want to learn by tinkering, but I can’t even access the files. She can see them, but I can’t. I will try disabling jet Pack and get back to you! It’s been like that since before the 2.0 update, but she is just redoing the entire design for the entire site. I would like to be edit my own CSS code, though, now that I know how! But I haven’t ever been able to see the files. I sent her a screen shot, and she said ‘What?!” Oh, WordPress…

    Did go and check this. Never noticed it before this upgrade, but it’s a feature of adding Jet Pack.

    There are many great components in Jet Pack. Other than testing it on some of my own sites, I don’t use it.

    Best of luck with getting under the hood! Post if you have questions, it’s a great community here at StudioPress.

    You may find that your user account is set to something that prohibits you from seeing those files. It can be easy to take a site down with a change to your functions.php. I do that sometimes.

    Be sure to keep the lines of communication open with your designer/developer. It can get confusing having multiple people touching a site without it. She may be able to set you up with a working development area for you to play with, depending on your host account. For clients that want to learn WordPress, I give them a copy of Lisa Sabin-Wilson’s WordPress for Dummies book. It’s a great place to start.

    Best of Luck!

    Thank you so much, everyone! I have been absolutely in communication with my designer and do not touch anything she has done. I would like to make changes, because so far, she has been working for free (long story). You’ve been so helpful!
