My site wishingwealthblog.com, used to have nice spacing and padding all around the elements on this page and now everything has totally squished together. Any thoughts on why this would occur after updating this evening?
I’m able to fix it by incrementing the padding of each element by 1px and then returning it to the original value. It gets fixed until I change something in customizer that requires a frame refresh, like typography or sidebar view options.
Any idea why this could be happening? Is my data corrupted?
I don’t use a child theme, but I haven’t modified the original Generate Press code. I have some minor custom CSS tweaks, and I am using a couple of GP hooks to show ads as well as generate the indicators. Everything was working just fine this evening, and then I updated the GP Premium plugin and the theme and now its all broken!

I cleared caches, still an issue. Seeing it on multiple browsers on multiple devices. But I can get it to look normal again by tweaking the Customizer settings, thats why I wasn’t thinking it was a browser caching issue.March 19, 2017 at 8:07 pm #294492TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Everything looks good to me: https://www.screencast.com/t/QeRTxnJQD
Are you sure you completely cleared your browser cache? You can check by using incognito mode or private mode depending on your browser.March 19, 2017 at 8:08 pm #294493Mike
So thats what I was trying to explain in my original message:
If I change the padding to 1px different from the default I had set, then the padding returns to the page.March 19, 2017 at 8:09 pm #294494TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperMarch 19, 2017 at 8:12 pm #294497Mike
Sure. I’ve done that.
You’ll notice that the padding is set to the original 40px on all sides:March 19, 2017 at 8:14 pm #294499TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
So what’s interesting here is the version is 1.3.46, but the style.css file is still serving 1.3.44 (notice the version at the top vs the version in the URL): https://wishingwealthblog.com/wp-content/themes/generatepress/style.css?ver=1.3.46
Any caching plugins on the site? Server caching? Using something like Cloudflare?
Basically, the old style.css file is still being served even though it should be the up to date one. Usually a service like Cloudflare can cause issues like this.
When you go into “Appearance > Editor”, what’s the version you see in the stylesheet?March 19, 2017 at 8:21 pm #294508Mike
Version in the style.css is 1.3.46
hmm… I’m on DreamPress with Dreamhost. I don’t have any caching setup as a plugin and I don’t have CloudFlare configured on any of my domains. At one point I was using WordFence falcon caching but they have discontinued that and its no longer active.
Is it still showing and old CSS file for you? I’m seeing 1.3.46 vision on the front-end code.March 19, 2017 at 8:27 pm #294510Mike
Sorry I misread what you said. I see what you mean. the file itself contains 1.3.44, but the reference is to 1.3.46.
Anything else you can think might be causing that? Can I safely deactivate and reactivate the theme without losing all the customizations?March 19, 2017 at 8:31 pm #294511TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
That suggests caching, either web (plugins, maybe left over from old plugin) or server.
When you go into Appearance – Editor in your Dashboard, what version do you see?March 19, 2017 at 8:33 pm #294512Mike
1.3.46March 19, 2017 at 8:36 pm #294513TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperMarch 19, 2017 at 8:36 pm #294514Mike
I’m going to roll it back to the previous version for now, I have a backup of the 1.3.44 theme.
I need the site to be working and when I have more time I’ll try and troubleshoot what’s going on and provide more info.March 19, 2017 at 8:37 pm #294515Mike
Sure, will do. Thanks for your help!
