A few months ago I hired a freelancer on Freelancer.com to help me transform my website, OriolBikes.com, to what I had envisioned. He pretty much got it to where I wanted to be and I was happy.
Last month, the landing page seemed to change overnight and some of the images and text didn’t look like it did before. I tried to contact with the freelancer who did the work but never responded. I hired another Freelancer and he made it worse, so I tried to simply change themes to an simpler theme, Refur. However, after I designed the theme and activated it, the website was still showing the old theme.
Frustrated with not getting anywhere, I hired another freelancer to help me switch themes. In a very short time, the theme was switched and more or less got it to where I wanted to be.
After a few days of looking it over, there were certain features of the theme that were missing, so I changed to the Smallblog theme and I’m having the same issue. The theme shows as activated but the website is still displaying the Refur theme.
I’ve tried to clear the cache. I’ve tried on different computers, phones…still same problem. It’s very frustrating and I can’t continue to pay freelancers to adjust my themes! Maybe related to that as well, when I create a new post…it doesn’t show anywhere on the site, yet I can view it from the dashboard.
