    Yes, you can. I am running using a child theme.

    Follow this guide. https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Don't bother trying to create a new CSS. Just copy the original to the child theme folder and edit from there.

    Good luck and YEMV

    Following my post, I did another round of checks and I found the search and social icons missing from the header.

    After some poking around, I have decided to use a far simpler method.

    Attitude offers CSS overrides.

    So I use the following to make the font bigger. A sanity test is to make the size artificially big say 27 and see on screen where it balloons out.

    body, input, textarea {
    font: 17px 'PT Sans', sans-serif;
    }

    Good luck and YEMV

    I have been trying to make some customizations to this theme, first by using the custom css box, and then I created a child theme. It seems like the child theme css is not always overriding the parent, and a lot of the code I wrote in the custom box did not work either. This is not the first time I've created a child theme, but this is the first time I've had so much trouble getting the code to work. Npalexande, did you ever get it to work?
