How to load an external css-stylesheet from the child-theme directory after the main style.css using functions.php?

Recommended Posts

ketri

I use codekit when developing sites because it's a lot better for handling Less with auto-refresh, bug reports, ability to use a decent text-editor.
So basically I'm overriding the less from the main style.css and combine them together later when work is done.

 

Here is the code in my functions.php

 

function high_priority_style() {
  Wp_enqueue_style('important', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/wp-pohja-codekit/codekit.css');
}
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'high_priority_style', '999');

Still it's loading right before the main style.css

How can I load an external .css after the main style.css using functions.php?

Thanks!

Hi,

 

I remember replying to a topic you wrote on this subject already - http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/32753-how-should-i-proceed-if-i-want-to-covnert-less-css-by-myself-ie-with-codekit/?hl=codekit

 

Not sure why you mention bug reports, bug reports for what and why you're using Codekit to do something that DMS already does for you ?

 

The best code editor our there is SubLime Text, some may argue for TextMate, Atom.io or elites will say Vim.

 

There are already live preview browser plugins or applications already and I am positive this can be achieved with SubLime Text too. There are also Lint packages that you can install which will inform you if you have made any errors in your code.

 

So I really don't see the benefit of using CodeKit, DMS compiles it already for you. Especially, as the built in editor already provides Live Preview.


Please search our forums, before posting!

Maybe I'm missing something, no need to argue :)
I'd still like to know how can I achieve loading an external stylesheet after the main style.css.

Thanks!

999 is the lowest possible priority 1 is highest.

I made a quick video where I try to explain my situation better: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ty64wCn7OLw


The custom Less form in DMS front end:
- no auto-complete

- no snippets

- no version control

- no cmd+tabbing to go between text editor and browser

- its a small space if there is lots of less

- etc

+ live preview is nice! 

So even though I think this is a good design and totally respect it, it just won't cut it for me if I write more than a few lines. So this wont's do.

 

Child-themes style.less -file and refreshing
- slooooooooow
- Needs to refresh and deal with cached Less-files so changes won't show every time

 

Codekit:
+ fast
+ does not need even refreshing because of css-injection

+ can open the site in mobile devices and see changes change there also without refreshing

+ If I have bugs, it tells on what line they're on etcetc

- one more http-request because of another stylesheet but I can combine them later or not worry about it


So for these reasons I need to get my own .css -file in the head after the main style.css

Thanks!

Could I please get a little bit of help here =) 
I still cannot get the .css -file to load after the main style.css. 
I tried using different header hooks but for some reason the .css file ends up outside the <head>...

Thanks for your reply Simon_P

Unfortunately it's still adding the stylesheet just before the main DMS style.css. I think I also tried a similar solution I found from stackoverflow. 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/m79bm8k41h08ud7/Screenshot%202014-05-22%2014.58.37.png

I wonder why is that? I'd assume that someone who knows DMS inside out would know how the main stylesheet gets loaded and how can we load something after it.

Thanks!

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      See:
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
          }
      }
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      Hi guys!
      I am using the LESS/CSS Pagelines extension and tried to add the following code to make use of FontAwesome:
      a.c2a:before {
          content: "\f07a\00a0";
          font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Pro";
          Font-weight: 900;
          font-style: normal;
          font-weight: normal;
          text-decoration: inherit;
          padding-left: 4px;
      }
       
      The issue is that as soon as I have the CSS via the Custom Styling text box, Pagelines (or the extension) strips out the backslashes (\). As a result, I had to abandon the CSS/LESS extension and instead add all my CSS code to a separate .css file.
      Is there a fix or workaround for this?
      Thanks

      Hello, I am having a problem similar to that experienced by Michael Kummer here. We have pages that show this automatic scrolling issue (examples here and here) and it is sufficiently annoying that we have seen customers bounce while trying to convert. Strangely, it only happens at specific resolutions, so it can be difficult to reproduce. In general we can only consistently reproduce it on a 4k resolution with a browser width between 1517 and 1536px. 
      Thanks to Michael Kummer's help we were able to set the overflow-anchor property to none in the entire body, which fixed the issue as far as we can tell, but also obviously disabled scroll anchoring for the whole site. I tried applying it to the specific element that looked like it was being reloaded, which was the PL Meganav extension, but that was unsuccessful. 
      Can anyone help us figure out which element or ID we can apply this property to, so that we can fix the scrolling issue but not disable scroll anchoring for the entire site?
      Thank you -

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.
