Edit To Action.php Or Custom Include Resulted In 500 Error

The reason for this was it seems to be impacting the way the responsive layout displays. Once removed, the sizing on the screen looked good, however I didn't want to remove the footer completely. So, having saved the original version of this file I then copied it back into action.php and saved. Seemed to be no problem. Next, I tried to add a line to the custom include file to remove the footer at a certain size of screen. This is the line of code: #cred {display:none}

Here's the full code I added.

@media screen and (max-width: 640px) {
.blogtitle {display:none;}
.description {display:none}
#header-container{background-image: none !important;}
#cred {display:none}
.blogtitle a {margin-left:200px}
.description{margin-left:210px;color: #727272;
font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
font-weight: normal;
#header-widgets {margin-right:20px;margin-top:40px;}
color: #727272;
font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
font-weight: normal;
#wrapper {border:none}
#page-footer {border-top:none}
font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
font-size: 11px;
font-weight: normal;}

Once I saved and refreshed the page, I got a 500 error. I immediately went back and removed the line in the file and re-saved. Still, a 500 error. I can't really understand why this might have occured seeing as I've put the code back to normal, but it was straight after the changes so can't see what else it would be. No problems accessing the /admin page.

A 500 error is not a very helpful error message in that it means something has gone wrong on the server but exactly what it doesn't know.

If all else fails try switching to a standard theme delete Suffusion and then re-install and re-enable.

Let us know how you get on

Hi @fineleric, I think you have an extra brace } in your code. Please check and report back.

font-weight: normal;
} <---- this brace looks to be the extra one

Kind regards

Is not the brightest idea to edit the files of theme. Be very cautious with actions.php which is the core of theme and is not a pluggable file (you cannot edit it in a child theme). In Suffusion you don't need to touch the files for getting the results you need. Or you have pluggable files which can be edited safely in a child theme.

Anyway, all your lines are CSS code, not php... their place aren't in actions.php.

Instead of editing files, add your CSS at Suffusion Options -> Backend -> Custom Includes -> Custom Styles... Your lines added there will overwrite the original styles, letting you to obtain what you want, without breaking anything else. (Of course, correct the code as Manuel spotted)
