Slider Control buttons not showing

    I have several sites built on graphene. I notice consistently that when I use a child theme, the controls on the slider don’t show up. Is there a fix you could share? Thank you so much.

    Here’s some examples:

    Have you edited parent theme style.css or sprite_master.png image?

    I have not edited the parent theme style.css but maybe the sprint_master.png image? If i edited/removed the latter, it wasn’t really consciously. Is that image just the slider controls? Do you have a css code I could put in the custom css box that could fix this? Thanks so much. And thanks for your work. I’m a big fan of graphene.

    If you edited the sprite master image, you will need to replace it with an unaltered copy via ftp.

    It looks like you have copied all the code in the theme’s style.css into your child theme’s style.css file. Do not do this. It’ll cause a lot of trouble, including the one you mentioned above.

    Please see this documentation page on child theme for more details, and the correct way to create a child theme:

    Ok wow, I didn’t know that. I read the docs link above. Thank you. Do you put the rtl file in the child theme as well? I’d read in wp back when to do that so that file is in my child theme folder. Important question: When editing the css now, after I fix the child theme css and upload, is it ok to use the custom css feature/box in the options section? Or should I go through the editor link to place modified css?

    Thank you for all. Your work is much appreciated.

    Your site is not using RTL (right-to-left) languages, so there’s no need to copy create rtl.css in your child theme.

    You can always use the Custom CSS feature, but whatever you put in there will not be added to your child theme’s style.css file. Instead, it will be added to the site’s <head> element dynamically on every page load. It’ll work, but will add a tiny bit of extra page size to your pages.
