Help..! Editing CSS for themes


Hey, I’m new to development in Omeka and still figuring out how this all works. I’m trying to test out making some cosmetic changes to the Cozy theme. Per the answers to this forum topic (Custom Theme Dev w/o Gulp? ) I was under the impression that I would be able to edit the CSS file directly in my text editor, then upload the file back to the folder (in this case, file path: /var/www/html/themes/cozy/asset/css). I tried a few different changes that would be obvious to see if they worked, like changing the background color and altering the header font size, but saw no changes reflected in my site.

Is anyone able to shed any light on what I’m doing wrong here? Do I need to be making changes to the Sass files using Gulp instead?


Hello - have you consulted the developer documentation?


Also try hard refreshing your browser to clear your cache (shift + cmd + r on macos, shift + ctrl + r on windows). You shouldn’t have to use gulp+sass to make changes.
