    I have a big problem with CSS fixes. 
    I make simple corrections on theme.css and corrections are not displayed. Worse, the connected index page explodes. 

    Yet I'm coming out of the DEV mode to load theme.css. Do you know why ? 
    Do you have advice because I have to fix the decoration quickly.
    Thank you in advance

    In many cases it's your browser. Try clearing cache in your browser or try another browser. Chrome is infamous for not fully clearing browser cache so I make my changes while in chrome but also have Firefox loaded and check the changes there as I can fully clear that browser cache better than chrome.

    Server Cache and Browser Cache empty.

    I have the same problem with Chrome and Mozilla.

    It is incomprehensible.

    Can be a problem of right on files or directory.

    I tried the C777, but I still have the problem.

    Can you post a screenshot of the CSS that isn't working? We are speaking of Insignia theme? If not, I'll put this thread in the right area.

    The theme is CAPTIVATE from SEAO ... I just changed a line. (Font size)

    It's really disturbing

    Can we empty the cache of SE manually? How to do ?

    Oh. Please contact them as theme changes may need to be done another way.

    I found the solution. You had to make the correction in the theme editor in the back office.

    Loading the theme.css file on the server directly does not work.

    Thank you Donna for your valuable advice ...

    Oh I thought you were working in the theme editor. Yes always work there and on a clone of a theme, not on an original in case you need to check if an issue comes up.
