I tried to use the style.css in the Jevelin Child Theme to add some larger amounts of CSS code, but it doesn’t work. The code is being ignored.
It works when I use the custom code field for css in the theme settings, but from what I understand this is only supposed to be for smaller changes to the css.
Do you have any explanation why the style.css might not work?
I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.
I have tested it on my test site and it is working fine for me.
Could you please share me your child theme along with the custom CSS code so that i can troubleshoot it on my test site?
Use following plugin to download it and then attach it to your reply here to share it.
thank you for the hint. I have attached the child theme to this post. The CSS code is below:
padding: 20px 0;
padding: 10px 0 5px 0;
padding: 3px 10px;
The site is in maintenance mode, so if I send you the link it won’t work. A while ago, I sent you login credentials which are still valid for you to access the backend and frontend despite the maintenance mode. Do you still have access to those login details? The URL is sachjournal.blog and the css code is for the 404 error page.
Please note that the css code is not currenlt you the style.css file of the child theme, as this didn’t work for me. It is rather in the Custom Code CSS in the Theme Settings. You would have to copy the code in question to style.css please.
The same problems still occurs. After you copied the CSS code into the style.css file, it was both in the style.css and in the custom code field of the the theme settings. When I deleted the code from the custom code fields in the theme settings, the css from the style.css file is not being recognized. I did clear my cache and even tested it on another computer; and both times it did not work for me.
Not sure where you are testing it but it is working fine for me on the page https://sachjournal.blog/kontakt/ as shown in the attached screenshot.
Please tell me specifically where it is not working by sharing page URL and screenshot.
