I am starting my Pinegrow adventure, as with everything there are significant problems with finding a way around.
I am working wth HTML theme, want to preserve styles, but also to add some of mine.
One of my biggest issues is there is no css that I apply is not applied, I tried to add to style.css in theme nothing happens, I am very confused how this work.
Hi @dakiriki. I’ll try to demonstrate how I do it when using the Bootstrap framework and hopefully it will be helpful to you. After opening PG and creating a new Bootstrap page then adding a row and column to the layout I’m going to apply css to the column background. Screenshot of pre-styled layout with the column I plan to style selected:
Then I click on the CSS tab followed by +Add rule, then I name my style and select whether I want to assign it to the selected element, in my case column (Create & Assign class) or not (Create).
Then I add whatever values I want to apply to this style. If I’ve chosen to Create & Assign class I see the changes applied to the column as I edit the style, see screenshot:
If I just opted for Create the style won’t be applied until I select the element (column) and in the CSS tab select the + symbol beside the style I wish to apply to the element I’ve already selected. If an element already has a style applied the + symbol displays as a - symbol so you can remove the style.
Hope this makes sense and that it helps you figure out how to apply styles. Any further questions feel free to ask.
Sorry, I did not express myself correctly.
What I wanted to say is, I expect to have my custom CSS rules to be in
style.css of Wp theme I am creating.
So, after a bit of play with importing CSS in Pinegrow I was able to get CSS rules to be written into
style.css, but by looking at functions.php it appears that
get_template_directory_uri() is pointing to HTML directory, not wp theme?
At first, I thought that problem was in the style.css file of HTML theme but remained after I renamed a file and imported my
So my question should be, I think:
- How to keep existing styling of an HTML theme and add custom directly to
WP theme style.cssso it is ready to use?
- How to get that
style.cssis properly recognized by WP, as changing path in
functions.phpdoes not help?
This is the part where I am getting confused, I figured part with creating CSS rules from the tutorial.
I am not WP noob but I am a noob in Pinegrow, that seem to be very good tool for rapid development.
This is my learning project and most likely I am making mistakes
I like what I see so far, just there are many blurry parts
