Additional CSS works but style.css doesn't


I can change my website’s style using the Additional CSS console in the Wordpress dashboard, but when I try to change the style.css file in my child theme using exactly the same code, nothing happens.

Please help, and thanks in advance.


hi Neil82

Sorry but why you think that this is the problem? this is absolutely not the problem and you can house all your CSS in the additional CSS box which is intended exactly for this

Hi Noda,

Thanks for your response. I’m now to building a website, and wanted to learn how the style.css file works. But you are right, it’s probably not a big issue as such.
