Weird. Changes to Stylesheet not showing

Hi!
This is peculiar and I can't figure out what's going on. Maybe some caching issue on the hosting company server?

Anyway, I've edited this line in the stylesheet: 1143:

.single .hentry {
	padding-bottom: .5em;
	border-bottom: 2px dashed #9e1ea3;
}
.blog .hentry,
.archive .hentry {
	padding-top: 1em!important;
	border-top: 2px dashed #9e1ea3!important;
}

Open in new window

I want the border on top rather than bottom for archive and blog pages. I see the changes in the admin Editor under Appearance. I see the changes when I view the file through FTP. But when I click on the stylesheet link in "View Source", or view in the inspector,  the changes aren't there!

.single .hentry, .blog .hentry, .archive .hentry {
    padding-bottom: .5em;
    border-bottom: 2px dashed #9e1ea3;
}

Open in new window


Subsequently, I don't see the change happening o the site. I cleared my cache and I checked in Firefox and Chrome.

Anyone ever had this happen?

If Wordpress is using a cache plugin you should clear it too. Ditto for CDN if you use caching.

No caching plugin, no CDN. No idea. :(

It seems to be working fine on the blog page. How do I get to the single and archive pages?

Have you tried different browsers & different computers?

Which css file is it? maybe the active file is minified.

It's all fixed now!
Apparently, I needed to update to WordPress 4.6.1.

I got on the phone with the hosting company and we tried to troubleshoot. Then they alerted me to the update. Once I updated, all my CSS showed up! So I'm assuming that there was extra security measures on the hosting company server that didn't allow any editing until that update was done!

Problem was solved by contacting Hosting Provider. I'm hoping the solution will help others who may have an file updating issue and have not yet updated their WordPress Core to 4.6.1!
