CSS changes not working

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Hello,

I have been making changes to the quickstart template.css file. When I save these changes they don't work even after clearing the cache. I can't even see the new css when viewing the page source.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Josh.

Hi,

I have solved the issue. My web hosting "Sitegrounds" has a Joomla SuperCacher. I had to disable this.

Thanks for your help anyways :)

Hi,
What am I doing wrong?

you should start with Helix3 Manual study.
---
1) Never edit core .css files
2) Use those alternative methods instead, one of them.

Hi,

Thank you for all for the very quick replies.

1) Creating a custom.css file did not work. It loads the stylesheet but its blank.

2) In "Before </head>" I put
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/templates/shaper_finance/css/custom.css">
and it still did load the in css in the stylesheet.

3) Putting the text in the "Custom CSS" field does work, but is not ideal for large amounts of code.

I still don't understand why point 1 and 2 does not work.

Thank you for the help in advance.

Josh.
