DMS 2 Live Preview with Child themes


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi guys.

 

Any ideas why the CSS/LESS live preview doesn't work when you are using a child theme?  I know the LESS is used from the child instead, but it would be a huge disappointment to lose the function of the live preview because of this, it saves hours of development time.

 

Many Thanks

I Press CMD+Enter and nothing happens, the slider does flash on and off though.  This has happened a few times when using child themes

I also notice my css in the LESS file of the child theme compiles to http://www.essentiallyashgrove.co.uk/?pagedraft=1 instead of http://www.essentiallyashgrove.co.uk/wp-content/themes/nicks-base-theme/style.css?ver=203-0319115308 which is still as it comes.

 

I am also trying to use @{plChildRoot} but it is taking me to the site url, not the child theme url... :/

What CSS are you trying to Live preview ?
