    Luxe custom css

    I've searched and cannot seem to find how to get custom CSS implemented for this theme. We do not have access to the actual file structure.

    I tried adding a css selector to both the cssui and the readytheme css files, but nothing seems to be coming through. I have checked the name, made adjustments - I am stumped.

    Is there a way to refresh the cache and dynamically rebuild that style.php? Do we need to go somewhere else in the admin area in order to adjust css? Or am I missing something? Other themes I have added to the readytheme and it's show up pretty quickly.

    Thanks

    With the Luxe ReadyTheme, all of the theme styling takes place in the mm5/themes/luxe/css/settings/theme.css file. If you do not have FTP access to your site to edit the files, I would recommend contacting either Support or Professional Services for assistance.

      Our preference is to use a 'custom' css file, load it after the original and then add styles to override the original. This way, if there is an update to the original styles, you don't need to re-add your customization's.

        Thanks for the suggestions. I find it odd that you can't edit the css from the dashboard, but will work around it! Will get access to the files; in the meantime just used inline styles as a quick change.

          I second what Bruce has mentioned, you'll find it best, in the long run, to not edit any of the original CSS files. I started created a custom.css file when I was first using the Bootstrap based ReadyTheme (Bootstrap CSS files are some that you never ever want to edit). Until you get FTP access, add the style to either the Page's head tag area or if it's something for all pages stick it in the HEAD Tag field. I find by doing it this way, it's easier to find and move into a custom.css file.

            If you use a custom file, you can upload it and access from Menu | User Interface : CSS Resources (tab).

            Although, we prefer using our Edit This! tool https://www.phosphormedia.com/product/pm_edit_this.html tool as its more convenient method of editing. (It also lets you submit the CSS for validating with a single click.)
