Hey Rick,

The Read More buttons on the front page and the category pages are showing up white, so they can't be seen unless they are hovered over.  This is also happening on the category pages.  The same is happening with the previous and next post buttons on single post pages (although I disabled those) not realizing that the problem is showing up elsewhere too.

I think I might have meddled with colors somewhere that I should not have done and that's why this is happening.  I've looked everywhere but for the life of me I can't find where to fix this.  And I don't want to restore templates because I'll lose all the work I've already done.

Could you please point me in the right direction to fix this?

Also, if I may add this here, where can I change the size of the headings for the feature box, attention box and featured box content on the front page only?  Is there a way to do this without affecting the headings elsewhere like on the category pages?

Thanks in advance. 🙂

Gabi you should start watching the videos on how to customize Agility 3.  All of these things are adjusted in the Skin Design options.

You can fix the button colors under Skin Design >> Font Style Options >> Read More Buttons

Hey Rick,

Thanks for this.  So it turns out I was in the right place after all.  The issue seems to be that the colors don't actually change on the front end.  I've played around with colors, but it takes days for the colors to actually change.  I'm not kidding.  Even after clearing the cache of my browser several times, as well as the cache of my site.  I've even disabled the cache plugin.  But to no avail.  So if I play around with colors I'm not seeing the effects until at least 2 days later.  And then if I want to change something it's another 2 days before I see the changes.  I'm not sure what's causing this but I have never experienced this before.

Other things I've tried is to visit the site from another browser and PC after making the changes but still nothing.  And saving color options multiple times also doesn't help.

Any ideas?

Gabi - like it or not that is a caching issue.  If it takes 2 days to see the changes then it is probably hosting related caching.

What host are you using?

Hi Rick,

I'm with SiteGround.  I don't think it's the host.  I think it's my cache plugin.  I'm using WP Rocket which is a new, i changed to them from W3.  I think I found the trick.  I need to clear cache, close browser and open it again.

I'll contact the plugin developers about this.

Thanks for your guidance on this issue though. 🙂

But, but, but...... you should NEVER have any form of caching on while you are doing development.  No caching plugins, no host caching (yes siteground does cache), no proxy caching (cloudflare), no 'nuthin!

It's bad enough that you have to deal with browser caching.

Thanks Rick, I never knew this.  Will definitely get in touch with SiteGround and MaxCDN to find out how to turn caching off when necessary. 🙂
