Settings not updating

Recommended Posts

jbagley

Hi, I need some urgent help. I can't seem to get any settings in the backend of my site to update. http://www.riverclub.co.za I have just moved the site from my test environment at http://riverclub.hashfff.com to its new host. So if you take a look at http://riverclub.co.za/about-us/ I need to adjust settings in the layout editor, which are not pulling through to the main site. dynamic.css is set to 777. Is there anything else I am doing wrong or that I should look out for? As an example, my background image URL is this http://cl.ly/6UrW (screenshot of code) but in the Platform pro settings its this: http://cl.ly/6VPe (screenshot of backend) So as you can see, these aren't pulling through correctly either. :( Thanks! Jason

Does your host run PHP5 and all the minimum requirements? Did you try disabling the Ajax saving under miscellaneous settings?

Hey Adam, thanks for responding. I've just checked and the host does support PHP5. I also tried disabling the Ajax saving, but it hasn't helped. I managed to sticky tape the site to get it live, so its ok for now and I've mailed the client saying they need to move host providers since the one they using doesn't seem to be able to handle a simple WP installation. It also gives errors when trying to upgrade plugins, so there could also be file permission errors which aren't helping all of this!

If you're using FTP, you can change permissions for the plugins if needed.

Another issue I seem to have is I can't get blog posts to have the default "One sidebar on right". So in the Pagelines settings I have this: http://cl.ly/6X7s (screenshot) which I assume would mean that I would have a sidebar that has my widgets in it. However see this post: http://riverclub.co.za/news-from-the-river-club/ It seems to have the layout, but no sidebar. If I edit this setting (http://cl.ly/6Xp2) on the post, it then displays my widgets. I've set all the file permissions on wp-content to 777 as well as disabled Ajax saving. The server is running PHP 5.2.1 and Apache 2, which I guess should all be fine. Thanks for any help!

Ok, it might seem that my previous post was a different issue, but they all linked to the fact that the settings in Pagelines are not being saved / applied to the site. :( It's working on my test server, but not on the clients server, so I'm trying to work out what is causing this.

Another thing, what is the easiest way to test if dynamic.css is actually working correctly?

Try making CSS changes in the file and see if they're working on the website.
