How Can I Work Backwards?! - Post ID...

Making a few changes the other day, all was going well until my Index page suddenly lost all its formatting. I have no idea what happened, but the css.main file was suddenly a lot shorter than it had been previously.

I managed to recover an earlier version of that file and upload it, and the live site now looks fine - but my Index page in RSD is still a complete mess. This means I can't make further changes and just export and upload them as usual.

Is there any way that I can 'work backwards' and reinstate the css.main file into RSD? I don't know where the working files are actually stored, or in what format, or whether this is possible, but it would be a lot quicker than having to completely redo my index page.

Unfortunately i think that you are stuck with re-doing the page. It may be worth while opening a support ticket first and asking the magicians at cc they might be able to reccover it.

I have found myself in this situation before. One technique you might want to try is to use a tool (usually found online) to compare two css stylesheets. If you have a older "working" backup main.css stylesheet and then your newer main.css stylesheet you can compare and see the differences. Then it is a matter of just going back in and adding the styles needed into the newer project. Of course if Wayan suggestion of asking for support worked....thats great too.
I don't design the sites, I make them work.
