In short yes…
The client is currently looking at the development of this site – so in order to make them happy I have been editing the base file in the parent theme. However I know this will be over written with an update. Thus the overall change of the site.
The file with the major changes in it http://archedevelopmentserver.com/template/wp-content/themes/evolve/library/media/css/base.css
But I have made alterations to the css file in my child (text should be red for one)
None of the changes here are taking – it does not ever show up on the “view source” of the site.
This is the code for the style sheet that it seems to be using.
