my innov8ive child theme is corrupt (according to hostgator) so they suggested I reinstall it. I suspect it has something to do with "cacheing" because I was trying to set up wp supercache with a CDN : amazon cloudfront, and the template had issues soon after. I disabled cloudfront. This is what I'm planning to do to get my site back as it was before this issue. Please tell me if this is correct:
1. delete WP supercache from wordpress
2. Copy and paste my CSS (innov8ive) style sheet from Hostgator into a doc
3. Delete my innov8ive child theme from wordpress
4. reinstall and activate my innov8ive theme
5. paste my old CSS style sheet into the wordpress editor
Am I missing anything? Tony
PS...my site is currently showing the WP 2012 theme, not innov8ive

Tony, I am the one you correspond with on Eight Crazy Designs support. You could actually just deactivate the plugin all together, delete the files and then implement your original Innov8tive theme again.

I have deleted the WP supercache...I think the problem might have occurred before supercache and installing just exposed it.
When I initially installed my theme, it was installed as theme=innov8ive.bak is it supposed to be theme=innov8ive ??? I looked up .bak and see that it means backup...none of my other themes have that extension.
Should I reinstall the regular one?

The file doesn't come labeled like that. Where did you get the file with a .bak extension from? I would just take do what I suggested. Rename the file - functions.php on the server to functions-old.php. Then upload a new copy of the functions.php from the theme folder - not that .bak file.

Hi Anita, I was about to activate the innov8ive theme again. However, when I 'live preview' the theme in wordpress it shows nothing...do genesis child themes not preview or is there still a problem? (my old themezilla child theme does preview)
Thanks for your help, Tony

Hi Tony, why don't you go to my website and send me a note so I can have your email. I will try to assist you offline which might be faster.

thank you so much for helping me get my child theme up and running again. You were EXTREMELY helpful and I appreciate the time you took to figure out the issue. I won't be messing with CDN's again anytime soon 🙂 Tony
