When to use Custom CSS vs Child Theme

Recommended Posts

joie

I used the Custom CSS / firebug to customize my platformpro such as - adding background image to a canvas / page - adding background image to the fboxes. - changing the header weight - Shift the main navigation menu up into the header image and so on Just read about child theme and considering whether it is a good way to customize What are the cases when Custom CSS is the way to go ? If I choose the child theme method, will the custom CSS be also available from the Child Theme ? Thank you, Regards, Joie

What are the cases when Custom CSS is the way to go ?
Let's say you added an element to your widget that has CSS you made yourself. For example, a DIV layer that requires a specific style and its selector is div.mycustombox. The CSS for this could go in the Custom CSS but you also have the option to put it in base.css. It doesn't matter which one.
If I choose the child theme method, will the custom CSS be also available from the Child Theme ?
Yes, it will be available (it will function for the child theme).

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.
