    Hi there,

    I just updated my child theme for http://www.dmgilde.nl/. My settings changed though, where the child theme should prevent this. Besides, the changes I make in enfold/css/custom.css don’t have any effect anymore. Where can I adjust the css now?

    I want to get rid of the white space between the image and the header. Hope you can help me.

    Regards,

    David

    Hi David!

    When you update the parent theme you only need to update your child theme if one of the files you are replacing gets updated. So as long as you are using style.css in the child to hold your CSS then it wont get written over when you update the Enfold parent theme files.

    Cheers!

    Hi Devin,

    It still happens. My social media settings get lost every time I update the parent theme. Flags are missing. Mobile version is different.

    Before

    After

    I thought the child theme has been built to prevent this. Any ideas?

    Hey!

    Thank you for the info.

    Please add this on Quick CSS or custom.css:

    .avia-menu-fx .avia-arrow-wrap {
    visibility: visible;
    }

    Regarding the social media, did you add any files on the child theme folder, specifically the header.php? Copy the file again then re-create the modification.

    Best regards,
    Ismael

    Hi Ismael,

    You css code doesn’t do much. :-(

    I lost my header settings now (which I shouldn’t using child theme). I try to change this in custom.css (enfold directory/css/custom.css). I never change/add in the enfold child theme directory. Should I? I still don’t understand the use of a child theme as it keeps on changing settings after updating enfold.

    I have 3 problems to solve now:

    1. there is a white space between the header and the image now. How can I remove in custom.css?
    2. white space on mobile is too little, hence it cuts of the logo
    3. social media icons are still missing

    Your help will be appreciated. Website: http://www.redlinegolf.nl

    Thanks Josue,

    Don’t see the social media icons though. Do I need to change that in custom.css? And what about upgrading Enfold next time. Will these settings be overwritten again?

    Regards,

    Hi!

    What social media icons are missing and where were they/where are they supposed to be?

    When using a child theme you should add all custom css to the child theme style.css. Only if you change the name of the theme would you lose any child theme settings. If anything else is happening for you then try updating with all plugins off. WordPress and the theme work pretty hard to make sure the child theme experience is the same for everyone and so far I’ve never run into an issue where simply updating the parent resets any child theme settings.

    Cheers!

    Hi Devin,

    Just a lack of knowledge. Didn’t know style.css in the child theme had to be used. I removed the data in custom.css (backed it up in case) and pasted it in style.css. Will work with that file from now.

    Social media icons should be right from the search icon. I don’t seen them in desk top and mobile version. In enfold settings it says top right. But I think it has something to do with previous changes in custom.css or header.php. Hope you can see, why they don’t show.

    Regards,

    Go the the theme options and then the Header Layout tab. Then in the Extra Elements tab there is an option for the Header Social Icons. Using the dropdown choose the “Display in mian header area” option.

    They show up, but not in the header and on mobile.

    Hi David!

    It’s because of this code you have in style.css and custom.css:

    #top .social_bookmarks { margin-right: 50%; }
    

    Cheers!

    Thanks. That worked. (-50%).

    Cheers to you!
