    I’m totally stumped. I’m going to publish my site so you can help me.

    It’s here: Hello!

    I’m using code I’ve used before to create a round image. I’m doing this in the footer and I also stuck one at the very top to see if I can get it to work there. The class is ’round’ and it’s not working.

    I also created a test class called ‘pretty’ and applied to the word hello. It should be red in color and 55px. But the style isn’t displaying.

    Yesterday I posted a question on how to change the color of the ellipses in my pagination links at the bottom of each page. The class is easy enough to see, but the changes aren’t showing up.

    I reset Safari, everything is up to date. I can’t for the life of me figure out what’s going. I thought maybe I had blocked out some CSS and turned it into read-only text with those special symbols, but I’m not seeing that anywhere.

    When I use the developer’s tool to inspect what’s going on, it says ‘no properties’ for the style attribute. If I add styling directly to the image, I can do that. But I can’t use a class from my stylesheet, and it seems to be happening with any class I add.

    Would you please help me figure out this problem? Thank you.



    Where are you adding the CSS?


    Sounds like a caching issue – see if you have any plugins or a host’s caching that you need to clear.

    I do custom WordPress work!

    I had the same problem too. I was trying to change the color of the header in my agency pro theme but it doesnt change at all. I dont know what to do. I already added some codes but the codes are not working.

    .site-header {
    background-color: #333;
    left: 0;
    min-height: 61px;
    position: fixed;
    width: 100%;
    z-index: 999;
    opacity: 10;

    I dont know what to do. I am editing the right CSS Style sheet (agency pro child theme) but all the edits are not visible. Please help me. :(

    When style sheet changes don’t show up, it is almost always due to caching issues. This is especially true if your site is hosted by Site Ground. After making changes, clear all caches and force a reload of the style sheet in the browser by holding down the shift key while you refresh the page.

    SiteGround installs their own cacheing plugin on all sites. If you’re using them as your hosting provider, you’ll see a cache link at the top of the WordPress dashboard. Click it and you’re clear the cache. When I do that, I never have to refresh the browser.

    This has been an ongoing issue with SiteGround. I didn’t realize it when I opened this thread over a year ago. They’re an excellent hosting company, but if changes aren’t showing up, you do need to click that ‘clear cache’ link.

    I changed domains. This is the link to my new site.
