Stitch
[resolved] Change menu font (7 posts)

    Hi. I'd like to change the font on the navigation buttons on the lefthand rail bar. I tried following Aditya's instructions about the child menu but it doesn't seem to be having any effect.

    I created a folder called stitch-child in the themes directory, and added a file called styles.css in that directory, and added the text she/he recommends but nothing changes.

    Does anyone else have any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    We'd need to see your site to be able to help with a question like this.

    You don't currently have a child theme active on your site, but you do have custom CSS so you can use that to make changes - try adding this code and using the font(s) you want:

    .menu-new-vertical-container a {
       font-family: XXXXXX;
    }

    Thank you. But I don't understand why my child theme isn't active. I put a directory called "stitch-child" in the "themes" directory and added a style sheet. Is this not the right way to add a child theme?

    Thanks.

    Yes, what you have done sounds correct, but then the child theme should show up under your Themes in the Dashboard and you need to activate it - just like switching to any other new theme. Also, you will need to redo any settings and options you've done in the theme - as not all of those are carried over to a new theme (child or not).
