Hi everyone,

I'm really sorry for possibly dumb question however I don't know how to write css and I guess this is an css related issue and I was wondering, whether someone could point me towards a possible area of problem. When I edit my page in Elementor, everything looks exactly how I want it but when I publish it and open it in the browser, the borders lose their background color and for example the frame color is also totally out of place. I use Generate Press, but it does exactly the same thing with other themes as well.

I would be glad for any help.

Thank you in advance.

I eventually managed to solve this problem. I reloaded the whole website from backup that I created at the time it was all working however it didn't help so I set up a child theme, applied the custom functions to the child theme folder and then went to Elementor tools in WP and clicked on reload CSS files and since then it works just fine.
