    Hi, is your theme on the WordPress.org repository?

  3. That looks like it's this theme which really isn't supported here.

    http://themesmarts.com/themes/euclid-free-wordpress-theme/

    I'm not sure that site supports their themes or not...

    When I open style.css in editor

    You don't want to do that exactly as you should not edit the parent theme that way. If you make changes and the author releases an update then you'll lose all of your work.

    Instead create and activate a child theme of that Euclid theme.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Make a new directory in wp-content/themes/ called euclid-child and put this style.css file in it.

    /*
     Theme Name:   Euclid Child
     Description:  Euclid Child Theme
     Template:     euclid
     Version:      1.0.0
    */
    
    @import url("../euclid/style.css");
    
    /* Your CSS goes below this line */

    Once that child theme is created and activated then you should be able to safely add your CSS below that line.

    That should work unless the theme isn't child theme friendly. If that's the case then you may want to contact the theme authors directly.
