    When I change the built-in skins to lime-green, it will be saved in the theme options, but nothing changes on the webite itself.

    I am having the same problem on my site. I’ve tried both picking themes as well as picking custom colors and nothing changes. The site is http://davidseebach.com/magic/

    My site is http://www.coro-zonnepanelen.nl/wordpress/

    I think it has something to with the basepath, because it is both in a subdirectory.

    hi,
    I have the same problem here. No matter where I change the colors, everything remain the same.
    I shall mention that the installation is on a subdirectory, as the previous members have posted.
    Third edit: all icons are missing, too. I guess there is sth wrong with subdirectories installation and css.

    It seems that none of the styling options are working. The font change isn’t taken into account either.

    ok. I changed the permissions of creatiz/css/custom-styles.css to 777, as well as the parent folder, but that doesn’t change anything.

    Sorry, but this website is on a private server with Plesk. So I cannot grant you access to the webserver.

    While exploring with firebug, I found that the css that contains the missing icons is referred to this path: demo.yeahthemes.com/creatiz/wp-content/uploads/2013/5/creatiz.css (hardcoded?)
    Besides, the custom-styles.css file is never modified, no matter what permissions.

    I don’t know what this plugin is, and please, can you make the reply private, when it contains URL? Thanks.

    I’ll try a fresh install on a new repository.

    I did a fresh install on a new db. I only installed the required plugins. I didn’t import anything, no demo data, no theme configuration. I granted permission to the custom css file and whole theme folder.

    But the same problem remains; the theme option are not saved.

    On my installation these are all editable and I’m still not seeing any updates go through.

    – Appearance -> editor
    – Plugins – Editor
    – Settings -> Permalinks -> try switching and hit save changes

    I’ve also done a fresh install with no luck. Anything else I can try?

    “You should contact your hosting provider and tell them about your issue. Our site work properly without any issue on Stablehost!”

    And what I am suppose to say to my host provider?

    “Your site asked for FTP info. when we try installing new plugin, this is due to server configuration totally.”

    All my wp installations ask for the FTP credentials when a new plugin needs to be installed. I enter the credential, then the plugins are installed without problem. It is standard WP config, what’s the point with that? And what has it to do with the theme? All required plugins have been installed anyway.

    I’ve installed countless WP themes on this server with this configuration and never had any issue. I’ve also installed themes which used dynamic css rewriting for the options, and they work well. This is the first theme with which I have such a problem.

    Could you please try to make a fresh install on your side, on a subdirectory? Then maybe we could nail down what the issue is.

    I would really appreciate if you could make some effort to help us find the issue, because several people experience it, obviously.

    I just installed the theme again, with the latest updates. But it’s still not working properly.

    Is there a fix allready? Can you try it yourself, by installing it on a subdirectory. I think that’s the problem.

    What I did, and the problem is still present:

    – install on localhost
    – fresh install
    – no data import
    – install on another host provider
    – install on the root of the domain (no subdirectory)
    – grant permissions to all wp-content

    Are there people out there where the saving of the options (colors and typography) do work?

    I changes the following lines in theme-styling.php:58

    /** Write to css file **/
    WP_Filesystem();
    global $wp_filesystem;
    if ( ! $wp_filesystem->put_contents( $aq_uploads_dir . ‘custom-styles.css’, $css, 0644) ) {
    return true;

    to

    file_put_contents($aq_uploads_dir . ‘custom-styles.css’,$css);

    And it’s fixed. But it isn’t a good fix. You guys should privde a better one.

    Entering the FTP credentials is a good way to do so. But asking your hoster isn’t a fix. Try to remember that.

    Hi,
    I’ve updated to the latest version 1.0.4.

    I set up the ftp credentials in the wp-config.php. and that part works fine because I can install plugins without being asked for credentials.

    I gave 777 rights to the css folder as well as custom-styles.css.

    But that still doesn’t work, neither the colors nor the fonts changes are saved.

    The only thing that worked was the correction from debiesven.

    You mention php.ini, what should we look for there?

    What do you mean “make sure that the file permission of “creatiz/CSS/custom-styles.CSS is 755 or 777” ???
