CSS stylesheet missing

  1. Hi all. Have been redesigning our starter site today at http://www.songsofthearchitect.com, and while it was working great for a while, the CSS has recently vanished from the page. I'm getting a blank CSS in the source:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://s.wordpress.com/blank.css?m=1341862925g" type="text/css" media="screen" />

    I am using custom design, and I have copied and pasted the original Suburbia stylesheet in order to tweak it. I have changed the settings to "use my own CSS."

    Like I said, it was working great. And I don't know enough about what I'm doing to fix this. Help?

    thanks!

    The blog I need help with is songsofthearchitect.com.

  2. also worth noting: when I look at it in "preview" mode while editing the stylesheet, it looks perfect. ok. thanks!

  3. I am experiencing the same error at http://retailsails.com/. Custom CSS is no longer being applied even though it says my upgrade is valid for another 2 months.

    Please advise.

  4. I started having the same problem about an hour and a half ago. Must be something system-wide?

  5. I have exactly the same problem with http://blog.tepapa.govt.nz/
    We renewed our Custom CSS upgrade just last month.

    I have changed the theme earlier today. The theme got changed all good. I can view my stylesheet changes in preview mode, but my stylesheet is actually not getting applied in the "normal" mode.

    I have tried this on a phone, on Firefox, Chrome and IE, logged in and not logged in, as well as on another network, and it is really not getting applied.

    I'm totally at a loss as to what is happening there.

    Right now, I'm trying to make sure that my stylesheet is not referencing any unexisting block, to see if that would trigger an error, and get everything buggered up.

  6. maybe it is system-wide. I hope so, because I'll be d*mned if I can figure out what I'm doing wrong over here. thanks for chiming in to make me feel less alone!

  7. I've also left a reply on the announcement of the custom CSS upgrade earlier this month. I wonder if those 2 things could be related:
    http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/04/05/custom-css-gets-an-upgrade/

  8. I'd say it's affecting a large number of people. Our site has the same issue. Can't get to the support form either because it doesn't think I have any paid upgrades.

  9. It was letting me in, so I left a message there. Thanks for the link :)

  10. (I take that back, I needed to log in to the actual account that purchased the upgrade to get the support option. CSS is still busted.)

  11. mee too. sux. my css was just fine and then totally stopped working. rolled it back to yesterday and still nothing.

  12. No idea if this will help the issue, but try clicking the "save stylesheet" button again and see what happens. I would after that also clear your browser cache before looking at your site.

  13. If nothing works then you should try something like this:

    1) Select a different theme (temporary) (coraline is best to try);
    2) See if it displays correctly including the default styles;
    3) Now try selecting your old theme once again to see if it reinstate the styles again.

    If you have CSS customisation option then you may want to copy your styles before doing anything I have suggested here because you might have to put those styles back to your blog.

  14. Done, and done and done, and still not working...

    Can you see anything on the screen? I can see your blog and the layout is default for that theme except you have removed the pictures.

    Your blog looks like this demo:

    http://sandbox162demo.wordpress.com/

    Your Customization CSS file is empty so you may want to try again to put something in there to see if it saves.

    Custozation is an upgrade costing $30 per year. I haven't paid but you guys will know if you all have paid for this service. I can't ask this question just in case it upsets somebody.

  16. I have the same problem - mst be system wide

  17. Yes, we use the sandbox theme.

    I have created an extensive stylesheet that makes this blog look exactly like our website. It's working in the preview mode, but it's not appearing on the live version.

    We do have the Custom CSS extension that we just renewed last month, and our dashboard confirms that it is active.

    Now if you're saying that our customisation file is empty, that worries me very much, because I actually put a whole lot of things in it today, and saved it probably 100 times too..... I'll try putting things in again.

    Could it be that WordPress can't save changes anymore? I've had trouble putting new Text widgets in all afternoon as well :/

  18. Actually, how did you see that my customisation file is empty? When I look in my dashboard, it's got everything in it (378 lines long).

  19. This is to let the bloggers who are experiencing this issue know that I have flagged this thread for Staff attention.

  20. @tepapamuseum

    It looks like there is some problem with the servers. It started yesterday but nobody has posted an official info about this yet. People are reporting problems that I never expected before like uploading of pictures or style sheets going missing or becoming blank.

    I am just an ordinary user so I don't know anything about this. Only the stff can help and they must be busy working on this now to have any time to come here and help.

    Sorry can't help on this.

  21. Your file is at this link:

    http://s1.wp.com/?custom-css=1&csblog=cQiQ&cscache=5&csrev=26

    I can tell from the code of your page. this is the normal way to tell if there is a style sheet attached or not.

  22. Actually, how did you see that my customisation file is empty? When I look in my dashboard, it's got everything in it (378 lines long).

    Please make a copy of it in text file on your hard disk just in case the systems people decide to upload a fresh theme to rectify the problem.

  23. It isn't a theme issue, and wordpress updates to the themes would not in anyway delete custom CSS since the custom CSS for each user is stored in the MySQL database, not with the theme files.

    That said, it is always a good idea to keep a copy in a plain text file on your computer just in case.

    I suspect that AutoMATTic are rolling out select sections of wordpress 3.4, or rolling out changes in preparation for the upgrade to 3.4 and they have introduced a bug.

  24. @thesacredpath
    Trying all day to get you check your email please.

  25. I did and responded just a bit ago.

  26. Could everyone please check your Custom CSS is loading properly now?

    We had an issue where older versions of CSS files were loading—it's fixed now. Sorry for the trouble.

  27. Thanks Lance, this appears to be resolved for me. :)

  28. Woohoo! Thanks heaps, it's definitely all better now :-)

    I'll have a go at updating my widgets as well, to see if that works again as well.

  29. working better but my background style isn't working and it was working yesterday...

    houstonbengals.com

    body {
    background-position:0 130px;
    }

  30. nevermind... wasn't working yesterday either...
