customize style of Layers Theme and DAWG theme

Asked on April 19, 2016 in Customization.

Hi, I use DAWG theme. This theme is a child theme of Layers Theme. I want to customize a framework.css which is in Layers theme and no in DAWG theme. Should I create a new child theme? Can I add framework.css to DAWG theme? In the futur I will customize too the style of DAWG. What I should to do if DAWG is already a child theme?

    Hi there,

    Never edit the stylesheets in Layers, or it will be lost with updates. See the following for how to use the browser inspector to find the combined style of an element, then copy it into your CSS panel in the Customizer:

    Custom styling added to the CSS panel or with the DevKit extension does not get lost on reinstall, deactivation or update. If you need to add custom scripting to DAWG, you will need DevKit.  Further customizations, such as widgets, templates or functions should be created as a custom plugin, or you can add them to DAWG but then take on responsibility for updating it later.
