I need to refer the widget to the correct CSS stylesheet for formatting.
Being new to this can anyone enlighten me as to where the stylesheets are (or what stylesheet I need to point to)?

many thanks

What version of Atahualpa and WP?
What is the link to the widget?
What is your URL?

Atahualpa 3.6.1
Wordpress 3.03
www.sparkleweaver.co.uk

The widget is cart66 - I am trying to update the settings/customise styles:
"If you would like to override the default styles, you may enter the URL to your custom style sheet."

I think what they are saying is you can build a style sheet and then put in it's url.
You could also put your customization CSS into the CSS Inserts and it would be used.

you can add CSS at ATO->Add HTML/CSS Inserts->CSS Inserts - by doing it this way, it becomes one of the theme options and is stored in the database so you don't have to worry about updating a file the next time you update the theme.

If it asks for the URL what does it want? Something like:
http://www.sparkleweaver.co.uk/wp-co...alpa/style.css

or just the style sheet name?

Not having the plugin, I'm only guessing. but I'm guessing that if you add your custom CSS to the CSS Inserts, you don't need to fill that in. That is as long as the plugin is not writing to that file - ie, it wants the url so it can modify the file.

Okay - so this is what I did.

I edited the Cart66 style CSS - took a copy first and put it on my home computer using "notepad" first - and sorted the issues out.

Downside is if I upgrade I will have to redo the changes.

many thanks JD

But why not just add that CSS to the ato CSS inserts?

Quote:
You can customize virtually every aspect of the design of Cart66 Lite by specifying your
own CSS. If you like, you can put your custom CSS in your theme or you can upload
your own custom CSS file so that your CSS changes aren't lost if you switch themes. If
you want to upload your own CSS file, just tell Cart66 Lite where you put your CSS file
by specifying the URL to your CSS file.
See, you can just add the CSS you want to the CSS Inserts. You only need to specify a URL IF you create your own custom CSS file

Yes, I noticed that - the thing is I don't know the URL is - my technical skills on this are miniscule and I'm on quite a steep learning curve

if anyone needs some iSeries/AS400 help however........

Let me try again, according to those directions, you have two options
1) create a file and put the custom CSS in it and then put that file on the server and tell the plugin the URL to that file

Or

2) add the custom CSS to the themes CSS.

Now in Atahualpa you can do (2) by just going to ato->Add HTML/CSS inserts->CSS inserts and putting the custom CSS there. It will now automatically be come part of the Atahualpa style sheet, and, since it is stored in one of the atahualpa options, it will remain there when you upgrade the theme or the plugin

JD I heard you the first time

Cart66 asks for a URL for the CSS

I don't know how to show the address

I am guessing it is:

http://www.sparkleweaver.co.uk/wp-ad...alpa/style.css

This really is where I came in - it seemed to get really complicated

I need confirmation or just how to give this URL - once I know I'll know for future

The way i read those instructions, you do not need to specify a url unless you have made your own file with the custom css. It has nothing to do with the themes CSS file.

If you would like to override the default styles, you may enter the URL to your custom style sheet.

Just for arguments sake, suppose I did have to enter the URL - what would it be?

I did have to go and (nervously) amend some cart66 style.css code and it did impact the way the site looked.

There is no path to the CSS file for Atahualpa as such. It is a dynamically created style sheet. I would suspect that if you want to create your own style sheet for the plugin you may be able to do so and put it anywhere you want.

Is there some reason you don't want to use ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts?

Way off original idea now - but it eventually comes to how I refer, if ever I needed to, (URL wise) to any files on the server I guess. Didn't know it would cause so much brouhaha.

If you are talking about the style.css you shouldn't edit as it will get overwritten if you upgrade the theme then the path would be
http://www.sparkleweaver.co.uk/wp-co...alpa/style.css
Any path to any Atahualpa file can be determined via an FTP client.

I hope I am understanding what you want correctly.

The path to the file you use will depend on where you put it. Say your domain is 'mydomain.com' and that points to the folder you installed wordpress in. And you add your custom style sheet 'mystyle.css' to the wp-contents folder. The URL to that file would be
HTML Code:
http://mydomain.com/wp-contents/mystyle.css
