CSS not updating

Good morning guys,

Hoping someone can help me on this issue I'm having. We are trying to add last three threads to the top of our forum as shown in below screenshot



We have a test skin for ensuring everything works before putting it on the main skin (both skins are identical) I've managed to do it on the test skin with no problems and changes in additional.css update straight away however when I go to add the same changes into the css on the main skin it won't update it.

I've downloaded the css file and everything is there but when I inspect element on our main skin the updated css isn't showing up (been over 24hours) We've flushed the cache on both cloudflare and in vb-optimize but still no luck.

If it was a caching error surely it would apply across all skins?

Does anyone have any insight on this problem and any help will be greatly appreciated

Thanks,
Justin

Sorry for the bump but does anyone know why this would happen

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

Thanks for the reply Lynne. Appreciate it. Sure the url of the forum is

Forum Link
I've also made an account if you wish to log in to see the different skins

User: TESTINGVB
Pass: testacc

You should also be able to view both skins when you log in

Test Skin Working link

Main Skin Not Working Link

I've also put the div in a condition to show only for certain usergroups as regular users will complain otherwise.

The additional.css for both (in relation to the what's going on box) is the same.


Once again Thanks for the help. This has been bugging us for some time


If you're looking for the div on the main skin it's behind





Update:
Not sure if this is to do with it but we get this error when uploading styles

"Failed to write css files. Please make sure that the directory 'clientscript/vbulletin_css' is writable"
I have chmod permissions to 777 on folder and subfolders in vbulletin_css and still have this error

When I had this issue, I deleted the vbulletin_css folder, created it again and chmod it to 777. Then it worked.

You can try moving the CSS back to the database then back to the filesystem and see if that works. Or try Black Snow's solution.

But, do you realize the id on the working style is whatsgoingon3, and the id on the non-working styleis whatsgoingon4 ? There is CSS for "3", but not for "4".

I do realize that but I've changed it it to whatsgoingon4 to see if it would make a difference on non-working style but the css matches with the div names . I'll try both solutions today and let yous know if it fixes the problem

Thanks

IF it doesn't fix the issue please send me a PM then and remind me to have a look then... I would now using the login info you posted above but to me that was directed towards Lynne so I won't login unless given direct permission and well... also I don't want to be the 2nd cook in the kitchen either, soup never turns out good that way so best to let you tinker first .
