Check your permissions and clear your cache by turning on dev mode and then refreshing your site then turn dev mode off.

The following folders must have 777 permissions set recursively:

Also this sub folder needs 777 recursively as well.

If the problem persists let us know please.

you will need to sign into your site using ftp (filezilla for most people) then you need to make those permissions recursive on those directories with the permissions options on filezilla.  (right click on the folder for the menu)

Recursive means that every folder and every file in the directory must be 777 

And then the sub folder of ow_smarty/template_c needs to be 777 recursive as well. 

Then take a look here to refresh your oxwall cache.  


then just press control - f5 to fresh the page  then turn dev mode off. 

or you can get the free plugin called extreme cache in the store that will clear your cache for you without editing the config file. 

hope that helps

profile pics are showing just fine for me.  It looks like a cache issue, are you using cloudflare?
