My Custom CSS
noob question (5 posts)

    Sorry in advance, i am VERY new at CSS. I use a normal child theme for my website, and the original theme has a bunch of .php files, some of which i've modified through my child theme. The theme has a pro-version that uses a child theme, and so now I can't use my own child theme to edit the pro theme (it refuses to give me certain options built into the pro theme if i try to make a child theme for the child-pro theme). So it was suggested that I use a program like My Custom CSS.

    I took one of the .php files I edited (the entire text of the footer.php file, not just the piece i edited) and pasted it into the My Custom CSS plugin as a trial-and-error approach, and absolutely nothing changed. I've tried other plugins and some of them even give me errors. So my question is, what do i have to do differently to edit on this as opposed to using a child theme?

    I have very little coding and programming experience, so I don't even know what to try, otherwise I would have spent hours just punching stuff in until it worked instead of wasting someone else's time with a stupid question. Any help would be incredibly appreciated

    My Custom CSS is only for CSS and u can't use for classic text, html or php. I think u need a different way to fix your problem (maybe also with my custom css - but u need a good css experience).

    @buzztone - That's what I used originally to make the child theme I already have. Which is why im so confused why I can't use the same child theme in my customs CSS

    @mporopat - My Custom CSS is not designed for modifying child themes in the way you appear to think. It just helps in one specific area i.e. CSS.

    There are a number of basic concepts you will need to grasp to understand what is involved in creating and modifying child themes. You should start by reading http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes carefully to make sure you understand these basic concepts.
