Hello there,

 

I am using a DMS Child Theme to customize my site and the CSS that has been added via the custom LESS/CSS editor on the front end. The CSS loads fine when I press ctrl+enter (PC) however when I visit the live site none of the custom LESS/CSS shows up. Not sure what I am doing wrong here so a bit of help to get my over would be awesome. I have included screen shots of what the site is supposed to look like. http://screencast.com/t/cL9Vx4Gv

The live site location is on my profile.

HI,

 

If your custom CSS isn't working upon refresh, its likely you have some errors, you will need to review your CSS and rectify any mistakes.

If that doesn't work, provide a link to your site, with DMS debug enabled (DMS Toolbar > Settings > Advanced) and also add your custom CSS to our pastie service then link it in your reply.

The CSS is now working because I am using the Wordpress CSS feature. I believe this overrides any theme CSS however i am not sure if this is the correct method to have the CSS showing. Any thoughts?

Hi there, in DMS you'll need to use the Css/LESS editor inside the DMS control panel. http://screencast.com/t/9FFmKAXsID5g

 

Once you've entered your css, click elsewhere inside the admin panel so you see the spinning saving icon in the top right hand corner of the DMS control panel. Once its finished saving then click publish. Then you can check the page again for the changes.

 

Full details of the different methods of making css changes can be found at http://docs.pageline...ow-to-customize
