Do I need to compile style.LESS ?

Recommended Posts


I am trying to customize a child theme (base theme), I am looking at the document and seems like I don't need to compile LESS file into .css, is this correct?


When I compile LESS file, it overrides the comment section of the css file and broke the theme.

The style.less file is added to the compiled CSS so there is no need to compile it yourself.

      Hi, could you let me know where the custom less/css is saved to - i.e. how I could access it directly via the server.
      I hid the Admin Bar by mistake and now can't save any changes to the Custom CSS as the Save Button is not available - so I need to find another way to access and edit the custom CSS.
      Thanks in advance

      I've been trying to upload a video to use as a video background, but the size was 12m, and the alotted max file size is 8m. I downloaded a couple of pugins that increase the size by creating php.ini files and all of that jazz, but to no avail. It would say (Max file size = 250mb) but after I uploaded I would get an "HTTP ERROR",
      Soooo I logged into my cpanel and saw that the php I was using was 4 version out of date. I upgraded my php to PHP 5.6 and now I get
      Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 39583744) (tried to allocate 15 bytes) in /homepages/39/d200014696/htdocs/dymondentertainment.com/wp-content/themes/dms/dms/includes/less.plugin.php on line 848
      When I activiate another theme that is not pagleines, the site works fine.... but will no longer work with Pagelines DMS Version 2.2
      My site has no gone dark. What can I do?

      I installed DMS for a new site and got an error message on install and when I install any plugin.
      Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /nfs/c09/h04/mnt/208781/domains/prevailcoffee.co/html/wp-content/themes/dms/dms/includes/less.legacy.php on line 818
      I installed the latest DMS
      Please advise. I'm now having issues getting any plugins to work. Not sure what to do next.

      I built a simple site without a child theme, using just the Custom Styling Classes and Inline CSS Styling available in PageLines' various sections. I also added a few lines of CSS in the Jetpack Appearance tool--maybe 10 or 12 lines, nowhere near 1040. I am now getting this message:
      /* LESS PARSE ERROR in your Custom CSS: parse error: failed at `` line: 1040 */
      Where can I find the Custom CSS and--more importantly--how can I fix it?
      The site is ndpointstrategies.com.
      Thanks in advance.
