    David,

    I love your demo site Volume. Will you elaborate on your suggestion to move the Additional CSS to a child theme? Is this move for ease of editing? Is there a potential problem with leaving it in Additional CSS? I am fairly new to the WordPress environment and would appreciate your guidance. Thanks.

    “As a note, most of the Sites use Custom CSS, this is added to Customizer > Additional CSS. Some sites have a lot more then others, mine in particular. Volume and Dispatch have 400 lines, which i suggest may be nicer if it was moved to a child theme but not necessary.”

    Hi Alex,

    There shouldn’t be any issues if you just leave the CSS in Additional CSS.

    It’s just good practice to use a child theme when you have lots of custom CSS, but 400 lines isn’t really that bad so it’s totally up to you.

    If you want to go ahead with a child theme, then download one from here:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/using-child-theme/#installing-a-child-theme

    Then copy everything from Additional CSS to the child theme’s style.css file.

    Let me know if this helps 🙂

    Leo,

    Thanks for your help.

    I have another question regarding the Volume site template. I created a new header element based on the pages header element. I duplicated all the element settings exactly and included the required html.

    <h1>
    {{post_title}}
    </h1>

    However, the post_title is still overlapping the site title. What am I missing? I would appreciate help. Thanks.

    Oops! Here is the code I was referring to.

    <div class="inside-header">
    <h1>
    	{{post_title}}
    </h1>
    </div>

    Can you open a new topic for the separate question?

    From my experience, the best way for users to learn and us to track the issues is one question per topic.

    Thanks 🙂
