not sure if i am posting this in the correct area, but i am looking for some help please! i converted an existing site to silverstripe.. everything seems to work okay but the big problem i have is that the changes made in the admin are not showing up on the website. eg: i bold some text.. it is bold in the cms but does not appear on the website. new text shows on the website and paragraph formatting but no other formatting?

If you move your installation you have to delete the silverstripe-cache, flush the database and the template cache.

. it is bold in the cms

How is it bolded? If you look in the HTML view in the content box how it that bolded? (eg with <strong> tags?). Try save the page then reload the cms with ?flush=1. Is the text still bold in the cms?

Hi samanthab. Mabey your styling on the page template vs CMS varies. Is your page content within a .typography class div same as your CMS? Make sure you did not misplace the styles and have something overwriting them.
