If I need to make a change to responsive.css or reset.css or superfish.css for my child theme (in this case, I want to widen the drop down navigation menu box to fit the width of the page title so it doesn’t wrap to a second line) do I also need to duplicate the folder structure in my child theme and then add the amended .css file?
If I have to edit the responsive-1 or responsive-2 css sheets, do I need to add the “extend/layouts” directory in my child theme – that was my other question. Or am I missin gsomething (or being too lazy??) 🙂
responsive-1 is the layout file for Xi. responsive-2 isn’t used (future use!).
Copying css files into your child does not do the same thing as copying template files like header.php or single.php etc. WordPress spots the alternative template files but it cannot do that with the css files.
If you look at the example in the child theme docs at the bottom of page about creating a fully custom stylesheet. In this example I do the same imports that the parent does but then pull in my own layout.css (in mu child theme folder).
But I must then reproduce the rest of the styles that were in the parent style.css in my child css.
Changing responsive-1 can be done this way. But just a few edits can be done just by overriding styles in the child’s style.css.
