P2: Editing style.css does not work? (5 posts)

    Trying to adjust a few CSS bits I have come across a very basic problem: For some reason none of the changes I make are displayed.

    Is there some special way I have to make CSS changes?

    (Also; can I create an overriding custom.css?)

    Create a child theme. http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    CSS files are generally cached by a browser -- so try clearing the cache on your browser and then viewing the page again. Or try a different browser...

    But CSS rules can be overridden by another CSS rule that has higher precedence -- so you need to make sure that your changes are coded so they actually take effect. Using Firebug is the best way to do that.

    Thank you for your initial thoughts. I have adapted many a WordPress theme, work extensively with Firebug, always test CSS alterations in more than one browser and heard about child themes - albeit in an amateur capacity.

    With P2 my alterations do not show up. Strange. I feel it may have to do with the "live update" feature of P2.

    Anyway, I will investigate futher and look into the option of creating a child theme.

    Thanks again.

    I've tried to setup a P2 child theme before and ran into problems - I think due to the complex nature P2 it's not very child theme friendly.

    Have you tried adding CSS tweaks to the bottom of the original style.css file?
