Support » Theme: Adventure Journal » [Theme: Adventure Journal] Trouble adding custom stylesheets

  • I’m really enjoying personalizing adventure-journal, but I’m having trouble finding where to add custom stylesheets. I’m running wordpress 3.2.1 and version 1.7.2 of the theme.

    According to style.css it says: "If you need to make changes to this theme, create a new stylesheet in the wp-content folder then go to the 'WordPress Admin > Settings > Adventure Journal' and add your new stylesheet under the 'Custom Stylesheet' section. "

    But there is no “Adventure Journal” option in Settings. Instead I found it in Theme Options but it says my stylesheet url can’t be found. It also said that about my graphic for my logo, but the logo shows up on the blog.

    I’m actually able to load the url as the theme interprets the filepath and see the stylesheet. So what gives?

    If you can see that the files are loading, you can completely ignore the warning message.

    We’ve noticed that in some rare cases, the file_exists() check AJ relies on doesn’t work correctly on some server configurations, and might give you a “false negative”. This is actually quite rare and appears to be due to a server misconfiguration (such as safe mode).

    The warning will NOT stop the files from loading if it doesn’t detect them. No matter what, the file URLs you specify will be used on your website, even if the files don’t exist. AJ is simply trying to give you a heads up so that you can double-check for yourself.

    So if you know that the files really DO exist, and you can see that they are actually loading on your website, then you can completely ignore the warning.

    Once you put a copy of the style.css file in the wp-content folder it disappears from the list of files that can be edited under the Appearance > Editor option. I’m probably missing something really simple because this is my first site, but any guidance on how to edit would be great.

    Also, I have it in the wp-content folder and can get to it by entering the address. I’ve put the address in the Custom Stylesheets folder but it appears the site is still being driven by the main style.css file. I checked this by making a change to the style.css file using Appearance > Editor and seeing the style change on the site.
