Custom CSS vs. Child Theme style.css
Just a quick question. Ever since I have been using the Graphene them, I have always utilized the custom css option in the them options page. However, this css is not minified with the rest of my css and js files, and I am up to 139 lines of customizations.
I am using a child theme, and when I remove the custom css, from options, and place it in the style.css of my child theme, it does not seem to work.
I place my css after the
(optional values you can add: Theme URI, Author URI, Version)*/.
AM I missing something?

What is the exact name of your child theme stylesheet, and what is the exact name of the folder where it resides?
@ronangelo – no I haven’t seen that yet. I did see the child theme creation (http://docs.graphene-theme.com/Customisation_using_a_child_theme) page as well as the wordpress codex on creating child themes.
@josh – childtheme stylesheet is style.css. the folder it resides in is /wp-content/themes/chris-graphene-child, along with functions.php, and rtl.css.
My apologies for my super stupid-ness. It works fine. I am using W3 Total Cache with Amazon Web Services in a “push” setup.
After I made the changes, I uploaded everything EXCEPT the minified files, since I was thinking I was editing the theme files.
Once I did that, site is good to go.
PS. I wanted to do this because my custom css was all showing up in the source. I didn’t like that. Since W3TC minimizes per theme, it was only minimizing my child theme stylesheet, and not the parent graphene css. So I also went in an added that stylesheet as well.
Thanks for trying to assist!!!
