  • Resolved katarisaurus


    I have what feels like a bizarre problem. All I want to do is adjust the size of the font on my site (

    Here’s the problem: My site uses the Responsive theme with a child theme over it. I created this child theme a few months ago.

    For some reason, when I look at the Editor in my dashboard and at the files of the site through my FTP, the dashboard shows that the theme installed is Responsive, and my recent child theme is not shown at all anywhere.

    Despite this, my site still looks like how I customized it with the child theme.

    Has this happened to anyone else? Do I need to recreate and reinstall my child theme? (I still have the files, so it’s not from scratch or anything – just really confusing)

  • look at view-source: – there is no reference to you child theme css but there is a bunch of css in the header of the site so maybe you used a custom css plugin rather than a child theme

    I did not use a custom css plugin.

    Somehow, my child theme was lost but the styles remained. I don’t know how this could have happened. There have been a lot of updates and a lot of disruptions to my site (at least the dashboard for a few days last week).

    It is absurd to me that my child theme, previously found under “Sorry Katari” is now just gone.

    Sigh. Yeah, I’d completely forgotten how I’d customized my site. It wasn’t a child-theme or a plugin: it was done directly through the Theme Options for the Responsive theme.

    Sorry for being a jerk, salsaturation. I appreciate you responding to my stupid question.

    No worries – glad you got to the bottom of it.
