I'm going to go ahead and mark this resolved even though we only have a workaround. Pagelines needs to get this permanently fixed in its next update (as well as the drag and drop issues).

Wow . . . Paolo Belcastro . . . you are the hero for figuring this dilema out about the caps&lowercase in the css file. Thank you. Seems like lot's of ranting against PageLines in the forum all of the sudden. Their themes are a step above others, that's why we jumped for Platform. Mistakes happen. In the case of new releases, often little fixes and tweaks are needed. They'll get there.

The themes are great, I have to admit. I think Platform Pro is the best framework made for Wp up to now, if it works properly. The problem is that you expect the developer of such a sophisticated theme to check very basic things like the folders' names in the CSS file! The other thing is to market such a Framework you need to prepare a very comprehensive instructional material to explain what different sections of the theme are and how they work. Fortunately in the age of PDF files and YouTube and other video-sharing websites this should be easy. After buying the theme one should find a PDF in the package to get explanation about for example what Shoebox is and how to use it. The instructions should be also easily found in the website. Otherwise you have what we see here: A bunch of first-week buyers trying to find answers to their basic questions about the theme when the Pagelines people are practically absent. I think Pagelines should have paid more attention to the quality control before releasing this theme. It is a great theme but it clearly has several bugs and issues. Also they should have prepared a bunch of videos and instructional material in advance to make the life easier for the buyers and themselves.

each suggested solution has had unintended consequences. Marking this issue as "solved" is odd.

Ok, guys you're right... sorry about this issue. Remember we just launched on Friday! The deployment of the themes from our server is changing the name from PlatformPro to platformpro and this is something we couldn't test until the product was live. Anyway, we will fix but this is the issue. You're right in Base, the css file is looking for "PlatformPro" we will change things to make it more intuitive tomorrow.

Hey guys, sorry for the delay... First did you update to the latest versions of everything? We've tried to make it easy for the child theme to work out of the box, but you need to double check the calls in the 'style.css' doc inside of Base,... in the latest edition it calls for `platformpro` which should be in the same 'themes folder. If you are having issues most likely your naming convention is off.

The issue was solved with the release of 1.0.9, and 1.1.0 has been fine since. What I had to do is delete BOTH PlatformPro and Base, then reinstall PPro, then Base. If you have customization data you need to save, perform a backup from the bottom of the PlatformPro Settings page, then import them in after reinstalling 1.1.0.
