[Resolved] Child theme css not showing


  • Author
  • #7750



    I’ve made a child theme for Polestar to remove the “theme by Puro” in the footer area. I tried removing some of the code in the footer.php, but apparently it wasn’t the right one. Can you tell me what to remove?

    Also, when uploading the child theme to WordPress the original css seems to override the custom css I’ve written in the customisation. I tried moving it to the style.css in the child theme folder but it didn’t work.

    Hi 🙂

    Glad to hear you have a child theme up and running it makes customizing much easier. I wish I could give everything away for free but unfortunately I can’t. Premium sales help cover the cost of developing, maintaining and supporting the theme. I can’t assist further with regards to attribution, it is automatically removed by the premium plugin.

    Your child theme CSS is most likely not working due to lower specificity. CSS Tricks has a great article on Specificity if you’re keen to learn a little more.

    If you let me know which page and rule to check I can help further.

    Thanks 🙂



    I understand, thanks for your reply!
    Maybe you can help me with something regarding the custom css;
    I’ve changed the hover functions on the site, but I can’t seem to find out how to change the hover color in the bottom footer (where the “theme by puro” text is displayed). Can you tell me?

    Sure, you can try:

    .site-footer .bottom-bar .polestar-container a:hover {
        color: #4d8ffb;
