  2. Click Regenerate Files & Data.
  3. Click Save Changes.

Clearing Site Cache

Check if you have any caching plugins on your site or any server level caching enabled. Clear those caches.

Contact your hosting provider to clear server cache.

Clear Browser Cache

Clear browser cache or check the site in a private/incognito window.

Theme Compatibility

This issue can be because of the theme. You can try changing to the default theme of WordPress such as Twenty Twenty-One. If this solves the problem, contact the developers of your theme.

Multiple Builders

If you are using multiple page builders alongside Elementor, they can interfere with the Elementor’s performance. The other builder can override the content you have created with Elementor. This stops from displaying the CSS changes. 

To solve this issue: 

  1. Open the page having CSS issues.
  2. From top-right, click Update >Save as Template.
