UPDATE:

The theme authors have shut down their site and there hasn’t been any updates in a few months. At some point this plugin will break something, so I can’t recommend it any more. Sad face!


I’ve noticed in the forums, there are a lot of questions regarding the style sheet of the child theme not affecting the output. Their response is to use the theme options custom css. I don’t like to use it that much because it spits out the css on the page rather than keeping it in a file.

If you look at the source code, you can see that your child theme style.css is very high up on the page before several other style sheets. But there is a neat cure for this. Re-Order.

Re-Order – Change CSS and JS Loading Order

It’s a little unintuitive at first. Where it says

Reset Scripts and Stylesheets

Do this first after activation – May require up to 10 seconds

 

Go ahead and click, ignoring the buttons above for scripts. You will be presented with a list of all your styles in the order they are loaded, and all you have to do is find the child style sheet and drag it to the bottom of the list. The hit ‘save new order’ in the blue button.

You might have to do it again after installing other plugins that have their own style sheets.
