Notice: this information was written when Microthemer version 2 was current. On Dec 26th, 2014 version 3 was released with a completely new interface. Some of the information may be redundant, but as much of
the functionality remains the same in version 3 we haven't deleted this post.
I am using bootstrap buttons on my MAMP/localhost WordPress test site and I have used MicroThemer to change the .btn-primary and the .btn-primary:hover default gradients. All was working fine until I upgraded to MicroThemer 2.7.1. Now I cannot get gradients to apply no matter what settings I try.
I’m sorry to hear that the upgrade has interfered with your gradients. I’d like to help you resolve this issue. Obviously as you’re working on localhost I can’t login to your website and see what’s going wrong. Would you be able to send me a backup of your whole site or just your theme by any chance? If not, could you have a look at the console tab in firebug (which is a browser addon for firefox or chrome) and let me know if that throws any errors when you try to apply gradients with Microthemer?
