and also 4 index.html files. I am using a wordpressmu site. I have a CSS window on each page to insert code and of course the wp html area. Do I place the entire folder with all its content on the host in the publichtml location? Or, do I place these folders separately…and if so, where? I have been trying to get an answer to this question for almost 3 weeks reading articles, etc. Any advice you might be able to provide I would really appreciate.
@Bizolly, your css and js files are placed in your theme/child-theme directory.
When you make edits to a theme, it’s best to create a child theme to make those changes, as any future updates to that theme will reset your changes. With that being said, I create a child-theme, then keep my `style.css` in the root of my child-theme, and any js in a folder inside the root of the the same childtheme.
So… `/wp-content/themes/my-child-theme/style.css` for CSS
`/wp-content/themes/my-child-theme/myjs.js` for JS
Chris, I know this confusion is all based on the fact that I have so much to learn, please bare with me.
My theme has a childtheme: Dynamix is the theme.
It provides a blank CSS, etc.
Do I place the CSS code (cut/paste) it to the style.css they provided or do I place the CSS style document from the folder I downloaded into the CSS folder of my child theme?
I hope you understand what I’m trying to ask you. The reason is I have several things to add and the CSS code for each item is very long. Its hard to imagine cutting/pasting all this code into one CSS style document as it would end up being a very long document and I’m not sure how I would separate each feature….see?
Thanks for your patience here!
In that case, what I would do is put a `/js/` directory in your child theme, and enqueue your scripts as explained in the tutorial I linked to previously, then I’d add assign classes/ID’s to your WP template files that you’d like to style, then cut and paste any css needed from those plugins in your style.css.
I wouldn’t import all the css files from all the plugins, that’s just overkill, and chances are, they have styles that overlap each other as well.
**EDIT**: WP comes with jquery installed too, so you only need to enqueue the actual plugin, not the jquery file attached.
Hmmm…..I’m not sure I can do this…skill wise I mean. I did read the tutorial you suggested but as informative as it was it didn’t address this particular situation.
Chris you have been very kind to spend this time. I’m not sure how to do all this but please know I do appreciate it!
I’m not familiar, but if you’re looking to invest in your learning, I hear good things about [Treehouse](http://teamtreehouse.com “”).
I also really like [Lynda.com](http://lynda.com “”), I believe they offer free video tutorials, but with a subscription, they allow you to download the demo files and work along side the video.
