[Resolved] What does @import actually do ?

  • I’m just reading through http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes — and puzzling over the line: “The @import rule brings in the parent’s stylesheet.”

    What does that mean from a php / html perspective ? Can someone give me a brief “behind-the-scenes” on what “brings in the…. stylesheet” means ? Is it like an “include” or a “require” or is it doing something else ?

    This is not a WordPress issue. Please try asking these kinds of questions on a general CSS forum. Or try using Google.

    Ah – thanks. I never heard of it and thought it was a WP thing 😛
