Hi guys,

It is my theme that is using this class but i think it is also in arkeditor right?
I use the less.php compiler to compile my less files to css on the fly with a caching.

How can i fix this or is this possible to change that class in Ark so it works with this compiler?
I use it in all my website's :-D

I started disabeling all kind of plugins and the Editor - ARKEditor gives the problem with my theme.
Even if all other ark plugins are disabled.

I hope we can find a fix!

Hi Joris,

The editor does not use the class ' Less_VisitorReplacing'. So something else is going on. Could you raise a support ticket with your site details so we can look into it.

Kindest Regards,

Thanks for the reply,

I first wanted to ask my developer because you said we do not use it.
I wanted to change the less compiler but after the last (ARK) updates it is working again.

It is like magic :-)
