Where to put custom CSS for BP Child theme

  • shirleyddsn


    I’m working on figuring out how to make customizations to my buddypress website. I hadn’t been able to find anything that made sense until I found THIS webpage, that I was trying to follow along with the tutorial.

    This tutorial finally helped me figure out where the folders are supposed to go in my child theme folder, but I still for the life of me can’t get any CSS to change.

    I’ve created both a file called style.css and custom.css that I have attempted to put in –


    I have also attempted to change the style.css in my wordpress dashboard->appearance->edit page, with no results.

    Thinking that maybe I was using the wrong #id or .Class somehow, I decided to try to put a red border around EVERYTHING just to see if I could get SOMETHING to work (* {border: 1px solid red;} ) and I can’t get anything to work in any location.

    Can someone please help me figure out where this custom stylesheet is supposed to go? I’m going kinda crazy over here.
