Is it possible to edit a template once it's saved? I've created a couple of templates that I like but that have some errors I'd like to correct.
Thanks for any replies.


Short answer: not directly.

The only way to edit templates with seamless lite is if you get in the habit of saving all your layers as a 'shape' before you publish. It's a little icon that IIRC looks like a pentagon with a plus sign. Then you can open that shape in a new template, size it, alter it and republish the updated version.

It's a little easier if you purchase Seamless Studio - you can simply download your original template .ssf from the site, open it, edit it and re upload it.

Unfortunately, that means you can't change your existing templates unless you made a shape backup. ...Trust me, I feel your pain. :)


I have been away for a little while... but just to chime in here, there is a post on using the shapes tool here in the blog that I did when we first launched it - there is a helpful video on using it:

Hope that helps Prax also had a great answer. :) m.

I just now am getting the backstory about this issue! It is doing my heart some good to know someone is working on this issue. Dear Matt Wallington, please and thank yous to you for keeping up the work on this because it means a lot to me. I have been feeling so down about this! I'm such a loyal CL user! Knowing that you're going to take care of it helps reassure me. Updating my profile images is part of what I love to do here. I was really beginning to regret attempting to change it and really felt bad when I couldn't change it back to my old image, it's good to know it's been an issue that, I, alone, am not going through. Please keep us up to date.

Best wishes!

hey there! i'm having issues with my profile picture (which is why i currently don't have one anymore...... :-/) and i have a feeling it links back to the server move. every time i try to upload a new profile picture and click the button, i'm redirected to a page that says "nothing to see here!" and my profile picture doesn't change at all. i deleted my old profile picture in the settings menu, thinking that might clear up the issue, but now i can't add my old profile picture or replace it with a new one! any advice / tips / assistance is much appreciated :)

edit: just realized this has already been semi-discussed so sorry for the redundancy! also thank you to matt and chris for all of the hard work you're doing to get the site back to normal. :)

I was able to replicate this issue and have some ideas on what could be causing the issue. I will try to address those tonight.

I'm having the same issue! I'm stuck as a grey face. :'(

The issue with the "Open" button in Photocopa is back. I can't access saved palettes again.
It worked for a while after I'd first noticed and addressed this problem, but now the button is back to being unresponsive.
