Oh my goodness not again…I really want to use this theme, but this is now the 3rd time I need to reinstall my site from scratch, hoping someone would be able to help me. I’m busy with optimization and have lost my layout. My menu is now all of a sudden below each other and my product pictures are huge? I had the price next to my product pictures but its big now with price info below it.
Please can someone save me here?

I would need some more information to help.
What steps did you take right before this happened?
Installed a caching plugin perhaps?
Restarting from scratch is never necessary with WordPress unless your database is deleted (not easy to do).September 19, 2016 at 10:59 am #227783JJ
Mother of goodness that was a quick response, thanks Tom
Man, I installed quite a few things Gzip, Pic compressors, some other optimization tools etc. Funny thing is now if I load the Mantle theme everything is fine, as soon as I go back to GP then its all weird.September 19, 2016 at 11:01 am #227784TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Switching between themes can cause weirdness, like the need to re-set your menu theme location and widgets.
Widgets and menus are stored in the theme’s table in the database, so when you switch themes you need to re-set these sometimes.
Let me know if that helps or not 🙂September 19, 2016 at 11:02 am #227787JJ
I never really worked in GP theme, just loaded it, then Mantle and then built my sit on that….then all of a sudden the weirdness hahaSeptember 19, 2016 at 11:03 am #227789TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperSeptember 19, 2016 at 11:09 am #227790JJ
I only switched themes now to check if the Mantle theme does the same…Mantle layout seems fine. I renamed the GP folder now on root and reinstalled the theme, but still the menu items are below each other and picture sizes are big.September 19, 2016 at 11:13 am #227791TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperSeptember 19, 2016 at 11:16 am #227793JJ
Much appreciated Tom, holy crap I wish my internet service provider gave me this good service.September 19, 2016 at 11:23 am #227795TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
I’m willing to bet it’s one of your caching/gzip plugins.
Can you try clearing your W3 Total Cache and deactivating the plugin?September 19, 2016 at 11:28 am #227796JJ
You da man Tom. I honestly have no words…thank you. Fixed up, Gzip Ninja the culprit.
I really appreciate your time. I’ll buy you a coffee…also, next time your in South Africa, I’ll buy you a real coffee 😉
Thanks again.September 19, 2016 at 11:30 am #227797
