Hi, Me again
Some really bone questions here…
1) Many of the support forum guides mention that to make particular changes to a theme I need to edit the style.css. However, when I look at the style.css in the editor there is a note by Kriesa that I shouldnt edit that but edit it in the custom.css file. So…
A) Is this file uploaded to my server
B) If so, will changes that I make on that file which is on my server take effect work.
2) Secondly, I want to remove the part below my comments form which says “you may use these html tags and atttribute”. I know there is a previous thread on this point with how to resolve this.
Part of the resolution involves adding something to quick CSS.
A) Where the hell is my quick css?
B) if I insert the code thats been supplied with the instructions to add to my quick css, will some voodoo occur where this code is added in the right place.
C) I ask because most instructions to make changes are via css or PHP but no one really says where to insert this code.
Thanks again for all your help,August 28, 2012 at 11:11 pm #89087August 29, 2012 at 1:42 am #89088
To explain, you can make CSS customizations to either the custom.css or the Quick CSS box found in Theme Options > Styling. We recommend you do so in custom.css simply because if something where to happen for instance you clicked the Reset to Default Settings button then you wouldn’t lose your changes. Also when Kriesi updates the themes he doesn’t touch custom.css so your customizations are safe from be overwritten.
The custom.css does come with your theme. It’s located in the theme’s /css/ folder. To access, you would need to use a FTP client like FileZilla.
Now to remove the “You may use….” paragraph all you would need to do is insert the code below into your custom.css.
What this does is tells the browser to hide that paragraph from view.
As far as the instructions, when we talk about entering code into the custom.css – really where in that file doesn’t matter as long as it is in that file. It has to be in that file to override existing CSS styles. Now when making PHP edits we try to give you the original/default lines to replace or at least where in the file to look since the location does matter. Sometimes though the location depends on what you’re trying to do.
Hope that answers your questions. If not let us know.
