Child Theme and Modified Sections

Recommended Posts

Keith Vaugh

Hi All

 

Can the CSS of a section be modified in a child theme?

 

What I have is a Child theme using Danny's Skeleton, and I have copied the sections I want into the theme folder. I want to do some modifications to the styling (all CSS) and am wondering is this the best way to do it or should I just add the styling to the master style.less file in the theme folder?

 

I have tried to do some minor modifications that way I am questioning, however they appear to not be altering the styling.

 

Thanks

Keith

Hi Keith,

If you create a child section via a child theme you can edit the sections style.less file and this will override the default styling for that section.

Thats what my thinking was, however it was having no impact on the site... However after a period of time had lapsed the changes where reflected, hence I discovered it was a caching plugin that I had forgot to disable...

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
