Hi Charles! Just to be clear, you can see the image in the PlatformPro Settings page but not in the front page? Ricardo

I have the same problem, nothing happens on the front end when I make the changes but they stay in the Wordpress part.

Have you tried setting css to inline under misc-settings? Some web hosts have very aggressive caching for css, js and small images.

OK, now it works! I updated platformpro from 1.2.2 to 1.5.

Now I have a new problem: I updated platformpro, like explained here. Now, the settings that I made before (red colours and stonewall background) are showing. I opened the design control to change these colors, but it won't happen. the "saving ..." screen just won't disappear. Also some menus like the Plugin-Menu just won't open, and shows a blank site. (the plugin install navigation works, btw)

New fact, this is funny. Having the 1.5 theme active shows all the settings made in the design control of theme 1.2.2. on the website. But i can't edit the design control. (saving... won't go away) Bottom line, if i want to make changes in design, i have to switch to theme 1.2.2, make the settings in design control and switch back to theme 1.5 to activate the changes on the website. :S

Hi Charles, First, do you have any plugins active right now? Second, have you tried checking the "Disable AJAX Saving" (as seen in a previous post)?

Hi Kate, after deactivating all plugins i figured out which one is the troublemaker. It was the WPML Multilingual Plugin that caused the strange navigation problems. So far everything seems ok now. :)

Is your PlatformPro the lastest version? If not upgrade it and try again.

Yes, i'm working now on Platformpro 1.5. It's really only the WPML Plugin that doesn't work.

I think you should keep the WPML plugin deactivated if it's causing issues with your design control settings. There might be another plugin that works the same way without causing any further issues.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.
