Can anyone please explain how the child theme editing works in the Scholar Theme?
Tammie, I hope you're able to continue helping me from the previous thread here.
This is what I want to achieve:
I want to manually edit a child or custom.css (whichever actually works), such that I can have control over element styles and so that I can update the parent theme without it overwriting my edits.
I have included a custom.css file in the child theme. Previously there was an import directive in the child style.css that pointed to a non-existent file. I activated the functions.php file...which seemed to do nothing (unfortunately though I can usually find my way around php, I am not a 'from scratch coder').
There were no imports in the Parent Theme style.css that pointed to anything in the child theme.
Currently it appears the edits from within the Custom Styles form are written to theme-options.php, which is in the Parent Theme folder...I can only assume that this would be overwritten during update?
I started editing the default.css template (via Custom Styles), so that it looks like mono.css theme...an extremely tedious process (given the few changes I want to make to the mono.css theme), which offers no capacity for styling elements and is made more difficult because the config. descriptions in the Custom Styles Menu correlate with neither Firebug or the CSS pages...so it's pretty much trial and error to find out what many of the styles actually are.
I would appreciate some clarification on this and I apologise in advance if I am missing the blatantly obvious :-)
