  • I can edit the css for my site only via the Theme Settings tab – if I make changes to the style.css by accessing the cPanel nothing happens. I prefer to edit in the cPanel because it’s easier to navigate and also because I am able to see that the edits have been saved. (I can’t find a file anywhere in the file manager that seems to contain the edits I make after editing via Theme Options.) I am using a Custom Community child theme. I had a problem with this a few moths ago, but it was because I had a space in the name of my child theme. I removed it and everything seemed to be working at the time, but no longer. Help?
