    Dear forum,

    It might be a general, but basic question.

    I´ve just installed MY Custom CSS to do changes in the Expound theme I want to use. I gues I have to "activate" MY Custom CSS in the stylesheet or another php of the original theme, don´t I?

    Or can I just make changes without connecting them together?

    This is my blog:

    Thank you very much in advance

    You have to activate the plugin, yes. When you do that, there will be a new item in the Dashboard called "My Custom CSS" - click on that and you'll see a "box" to enter CSS - that's where you'll put the changes to your site's CSS. They are applied to your site - you don't need to "connect" anything.

    Hi WPyogi,

    thanks for the quick answer. Yes I know that it works like this but whenever I put a code in the Custom CSS thing, it doesn´t change anything.

    could it be that I have to write sth. like "customize" before the code

    For example I jut pute the header.php in the MY Custom CSS and changed some parameters. But there weren´t any changins at all..

    Then it's likely that either you have syntax errors or your CSS is not specific enough. If you need help with questions like that, you should post on the theme's forum here:

    http://wordpress.org/support/theme/expound

    CSS is theme/site specific, so that's the best place for theme-specific help.

    You cannot put anything EXCEPT CSS in custom CSS. If you want to modify the header.php file, you need to use a child theme and put a copy of that file in the child theme and modify it there.

    Ok thanks. So would it be better to do it with a child theme?
