So I've had a blog that I've neglected for a long time, but I've been using the same layout for the past two years. I like the layout and it has held up through every wordpress upgrade so far.
I tried blogging again last night and the page would just randomly NOT load the stylesheet after a few too many refreshes (whether I hit Ctrl+R or previewed a new post too many times). Meaning: the tables and sidebar would not load and the links/text would appear on an entirely black background with the default-blue links...my site has a black/white/gray/pale green color scheme.
I use an almost identical stylesheet on the rest of my site (the parts that don't incorporate wordpress), and those pages don't have this "refresh too many times and it dies" problem. So I'm pretty sure this is an issue with WordPress itself, not my host/server. I didn't alter the stylesheet at all either, so there's no problem to look for -- it literally just didn't load properly, at random.
I DID notice a quick fix: when I go the theme editor, and just re-save the stylesheet (WITHOUT TOUCHING/ALTERING ANYTHING), everything loads properly again. But if I edit the widgets, preview the new post I'm writing or refresh the page too many times... I don't know, something goes out of whack and it starts loading improperly.
I hope I explained this well enough. I don't even know how this is possible. Maybe a glitch in WordPress itself?
Any input/suggestions/help would be appreciated, as I'm having trouble figuring this thing out on my own.
Here is the site I'm trying to update:
As of right now, it seems to be loading correctly. But I don't know when it's going to choose not to.
