Less to CSS stalling

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Running the latest of JB Venture and J!

Has been running ok and now just stalls.

Doing some final tweaking and layout stuff and no go.

Wandered through the Less to CSS threads and can't see anything obvious
Thanks

Hi

Just wondered -

Different server spec?
Server update?
Admin Tools pro installed?

Cheers

Different server spec? - same account
Server update? - Given the above nope
Admin Tools pro installed? - Nope

Thought I was the only one up this early working ;-)

I'm in the UK :)

Do you see anything in the console window or in the server logs?

Cheers

I've turned on the Console again
Not too good at chasing stuff down on that however

Hi,

Could you please open a ticket with admin access details so we can take a look.

It might possibly be an invailid variable causing the less compiler to error out .

Regards,

Rob

Thanks to Rob ... all fixed
Would never have found it in a month of Sundays.
For anyone following this here's the solution in Rob's words

"The issue is with the banner overlay transparency value.
I have changed it from 0.85 to 0.8 and the theme now compiles."

We are experiencing the same problem. Like Andrew, I've checked out Anthony's post and everything seems OK.

The compile function worked OK, I made some changes to typography.less (see below), changed some settings on the Theme Options page and the Compile LESS to CSS hangs.

Any suggestions?

Changes to typography.less shown below . . .

/*PN 12-May-15 Was "font-size: @font-size-base * 3;" now 2
h2 {
margin:10px 0;
font-size: @font-size-base * 2;
line-height: @line-height-base * 1;
word-break: break-word;

/* Paragraph
PN 12-May-15 Bottom margin was 30px now 5px
*/
p {
margin: 0 0 5px;
line-height: @line-height-base * 1.2;
font-weight:@body-font-weight;
font-size:@font-size-base;

Hi there,
Is that the full code because you are missing a bracket at the end there.

Thanks

Hi, Anthony, it's Pete Nurse standing in for Nick.

No, the code's correctly formatted as far as I can see, Anthony. I just changed values.

But underlying that is an important question - if there's an error in the LESS code, will it hang rather than reporting an error?

Hey Pete,

Nice to see you here :)

Can you create a ticket with admin access?

There is some error feedback that will popup in the top of the page (without the blue message bar) and there can also be some feedback in the inspector.

But anyway if you create a ticket I can take a look for you.
Thanks
