Question

Posted · Report post

Hello, I have Platform Pro & Platform Pro Base installed. Base "child theme is active" when I edit css in base.css nothing happens? the child theme is importing the main theme ok and editing with firebug works. Its like the base.css is not overriding the main theme css any ideas?

How are you editing base.css? And, are the changes saving, just not showing up?

Hi Kate, In the base.css if I do * { display: none; } everything seems fine ie. nothing displays on page however if I do #page { background: transparent; } I still have the #page white background? if I write the same code in firebug, #page white background gone!

What about `#page { background: transparent !important; }` does that work?

hi... I'm new to this and this is my first site. I'm on my website and I press F12 and the firebug program comes up. I change a couple things with it and it works out on my page. I don't know how to save those changes though. Can you help me out. When I refresh the page it just goes back to how it was before.

You have to copy/paste the rules that you change and put them into the base.css file of your child theme OR in the custom css box in the theme settings page - custom code panel
