Not Saving Options

If you are experiencing a case where you're changing the X/Pro > Theme Options in X or Pro, but the changes do not save, this might be caused by reasons below:

  • Third Party Plugin Conflict: Third-party plugins may cause incompatibilities and as a result of failing to save the changes in the theme options. To make sure that the third party plugins are not responsible for the problem, disable all of them and test the case. If you are using the X theme keep the Cornerstone plugin activated.
  • Cache Problem: If you have a cache plugin, make sure that you purge the cache and deactivate the cache plugin and check the case, in some cases the hosting service providers also have their internal cache system. In such cases, contact the hosting service provider and ask them to purge the cache.
