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.

After making my changes I hit control-s to save right? I worked on editing a bunch of stuff on my site last night just after purchasing the plugin. Everything looked awesome. Then I don’t know what I did. I either left the page or refreshed or whatever and all my work is gone. Is control – S the final save action, or do I need to do more to complete changes? Thanks


Hi Wayne

The Control+S is the final save. Something must’ve happened to wipe the previously saved settings. Have you tried restoring your settings by following the guide in this video?

I’d be happy to login to your WordPress install and check things over for you. Please send login details via my secure form:

Many Thanks,



Ah, refreshing the page may have re-imported something that overwrote the work you did. If so, you’ll definitely be able to roll back to the save just before that using the revision restore feature.


I turned on the auto save function, it seems to work great. I wonder if there is a way to throttle the timer on the auto-save….? Thanks for your help!


The auto-save feature is only as fast as your server. I can’t currently think of any way to speed things up. But I will probably do a general optimisation review of Microthemer at some point which may help speed up the auto-save feature too.

The auto-save feature probably works best when used on localhost during development rather than a live website.

ps I’ve seen your Tweet about losing your settings again and have emailed you about it directly. Hopefully we’ll be able to suss out what is going on as this really needs to get sorted.
