    How big is your EXTRA.css template?

    I can't open it, but IMO it's very large, maybe thousands lines

    PS: I'm the one who asked you about piling abundant code in extra.css about 3 weeks ago :p

    Several thousand lines shouldn't be an issue.

    There must be something else going on to trigger that error.

    What do you mean by "ACP offline editor"?

    "ACP offline editor" means that my forum hasn't be live, I'm working offline with XAMPP

    How should I restore it ? I didn't have any backup for the extra.css, it's disaster if the scripts vanish :(:cry:

    Yes, it's possible you may need to tweak some of the XAMPP settings.

    It's just temporary fix , the problem still exists here.

    I just noticed that when I get rid of this line from my config.php :
    I can't open the extra.css again although I have emptied it before, the questions are :

    1. What should I do to get rid of this problem ?

    2. In future, if I get this kind of problem again despite I've gotten 'ini_set("memory_limit","256M");' inserted in my config.php, what should I do ?

    thx for your help :)
