    Good Day!

    We have noticed that when using both Avada’s CSS Compiling Method “Files” in combination with SG Optimizer’s Combine CSS Files feature, the CSS styling of our website pages break within 2-3 days. After clearing cache, our website is restored but, after 2-3 days, our website pages break again.

    Above required that we disable Avada’s CSS Compiling Method but when we do, our HTML file size jumps from 29 kb to 149 kb, which slows down our page loading time.

    Is anybody experiencing this issue? How did you solve it (permanently)?

    Our goal is to keep our HTML and CSS files sizes down to a minimum (per page basis).

    Feedback (or a recommended fix) appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Update:

    We may have fixed the issue by clearing all caches in the following sequence:

    Avada (Reset Avada Caches) > SG Optimizer (NGNIX, Dynamic, Memcached) > Cloudflare (Purge ALL Cache) > Avada (Reset Avada Caches) > Browser Cache

    So far, everything looks good. If the issue comes back again, we’ll report it here.

    Cheers!

    Hi! I have the same issue. I use the following: WP 5.3.9, Avada v7.4.1, Asset CleanUp 1.3.8.1, WP Fastest Cache synced with Cloudflare. I reset all the cache and everything works fine but then a few days later, Avada (Reset Avada Caches) resets on it own and breaks all the CSS… What is causing the Avada (Reset Avada Caches) to reset on it own? Anyone know??? How did you get it to stop resetting on it’s own?

    Hi @letjknow,

    This themefusion article should answer your questions(s).

    According to themefusion, any time a website setting is changed (e.g., an Avada or plugin setting change or update), the CSS files for your website will be automatically regenerated. This may cause a conflict between new and older cached CSS files and, hence, break your site.

    Cache is a good thing, but can also be a bitch if not understood or managed properly. So in short, to minimize or eliminate your issue, every time you change a setting or a theme/plugin is updated, we recommend clearing all cache. If your theme and plugins are set to “auto update,” you may want to consider changing that to “manual update.”

    This forum topic provide the order in which you should clear all cache. When clearing your CDN cache (e.g., Cloudflare cache), clear it directly from Cloudflare and not from the cache plugin linked to Cloudflare.

    Also, we recommend you update WP from 5.3.9 to 5.4.1 and all of your plugins to ensure nothing else is causing your issue.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    Cheers!

    Hi @letjknow,

    You’re welcome!

    If the above does not solve your issue, you will need to disable “CSS Compiling Method” then clear all cache.

    Go to: WP Dashboard > Avada > Options > Performance > CSS Compiling Method (DISABLE)

    Cheers!
