Support » Theme: ColorMag » Why I can not Modify Anything on Style.css via FTP, WordPress editor…?

  • Hello,
    I would like to reduce the size between the widget on the sidebar. Right now I have added some images via the text widget and some features posts and the space between them is to big. You can see it here:

    I’ve tried to do so editing Style.css file via FTP, via WordPress editor, custom css,… and nothing work.

    The line I’m try to modify is:
    1289 #secondary .widget, .error-404 .widget {
    margin-bottom: 35px;
    (I would like margin-bottom: 10px)
    I’ve made the changes on Chrome Inspector and it work fine. I’ve made another changes on the Style.css as a TEST and nothing work, nothing change at all.

    I’m not using a child theme since I don’t modify the files.
    I’ve checked the Permission of the file on cPanel and it is 640.
    Colormag Theme is up-to-date…

    How can i make this changes? Why my changes on Style.css don’t work at all?
    What am I missing here?

    Help Please…

  • your changes seem to work, like you have made them with custom CSS;

    the bottom margin is now 0px.

    try to clear your browser cache to get to see the latest changes to the formatting.

    Michael, thank you very much for your fast reply.
    Yes, I have tried again and again after publishing the question on the forum and I did it on Custom CSS by adding:
    #secondary .widget, .error-404 .widget {
    margin-bottom: 0px;

    Before I make a mistake by omitting ‘#secondary’. Before I’ve added it like that:
    .widget, .error-404 .widget {
    margin-bottom: 0px;

    But the BIG question is: Why I can not make changes on Style.css file directly from the file via FTP or WordPress Editor?
    Is there some kind of permission? I even try changing the 640 Permission of the file to 777 (I know it is a big risk) and it didn’t work neither.
    I have deleted cache from browsers and from WordPress, reload many times and nothing.

    It would be really great if you can help to solve this ‘mistery’ 😉 for future changes.

    Thank you again for your support and time.

    Kind regards,
