Support » Plugin: My Custom CSS » noob question

  • 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).



    @mporopat – too learn how to use WordPress Child Themes you should start your research at



    @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 carefully to make sure you understand these basic concepts.
