5 thoughts on “Using the Custom CSS and JS Editor in BoldGrid Crio

  1. I cannot get anything I put in the CSS editor (as is instructed here) to work, or even to show in the Chrome inspector. It’s as if the custom CSS is being totally ignored/not loaded. Something as simple as resizing the logo – this works in the UI in Appearance > Customize – logo immediately changes size – but once it’s published and tested in browser, the logo size remains stubbornly hard-coded in html (why?) and the custom CSS in question is nowhere to be seen in the inspector. I could understand it perhaps being unable to override the hard-coded width and height html tags (again, why?), but the fact that the custom styles from the CSS editor don’t even show in the cascade is baffling… I thought this would be simpler than the rigamarole of creating a child theme and enqueueing scripts and styles – I was wrong. This theme has fought me in every conceivable way, of which this is just one.

    To be clear, browser cache is disabled.

    • Hi Philip-

      Crio is designed to be fully customizable without the use of a Child theme, using the Custom CSS and Custom JavaScript sections of the Customizer. It’s not straightforward to create a child theme, because Crio is already technically a child theme of the Prime BoldGrid Theme Framework. Our developers are doing some research and we’ll be coming out with a how-to guide shortly in the future for details of creating a child theme.

      If you’re looking for the ability to easily add functions like you would in a child theme’s functions.php, I highly recommend checking out the Code Snippets plugin.
