Tagged: background wont update
December 11, 2013 at 9:56 am #78328
I have the Focus Pro child theme and it seems that when I change the background color (Appearances -> Background) it wont update on my website.
I tried adding an image instead of a color - that works without any glitches.
So, does anyone know what might be causing this problem. I already tried turning off all plugins and then back on, but that doesnt solve the problem.

That's wild. I see a soft grey background working just as I'd expect, and it's #efefef. Unless you changed it without clicking "Save Changes", I can't see any obvious problem.

That's exactly the color i set, however, i still see the old one. See screenshot
Things I've tried so far
- Change the color to another
- Disable the cache plugin (empty the cache also)
- Disable all plugins
- Emptied the browser cache (Chrome)
- Tried through Internet Explorer
- Deleted the cache with FTP
- CTRL + F5
- My brother (loads the website from another country) sees the old color.December 11, 2013 at 12:05 pm #78363
Well, at least I was able to impart some good news. 🙂 Your change is working like a champ, as is Genesis.
I really can't stand using caches while developing a site, it will systematically drive you insane! They can be added just before launch. I actually looked at your site before to see if a cache was running. Chrome is also working here, and even nonsensical IE is just fine.
The other silly problem is good old Apple. The Safari browser has a cache that won't break if you hit it with a hammer, but it might update days later. For those poor individuals, and others for whom some bunk is happening, I counsel patience and a nice glass of beer. 🙂 Besides, blue color has not been proven to cause permanent side effects of any kind.

How could I have been so.,.... 🙂 It was the CloudFlare CDN that i installed because I was having some speed issues. Had to put it into developers' mode before i could see the changes.December 11, 2013 at 12:27 pm #78368
Wow, yeah, that's popping up all the time these days. Just this week, bunches of that here.
Thanks, I'll add that to my list of "why can't I see my site changes" answers. This may supercede Safari, #1 previous offender! 🙂
