Child Theme is breaking icons


I've tried to use your child theme in order to delete some "!important" css code from base.css which interferes with styling a booking form plugin.
However when I activate it, all icons on the site stop working and display a □ instead.

What do I need to do to make icons work with the child theme?

And is there a different/better way to remove a few lines of code from base.css?

These are the rules I can't seem to overwrite with custom CSS:
.ui-datepicker table tr:first-child td{background:inherit!important}
.ui-datepicker table tr:hover td{background:inherit!important;color:inherit!important}
.ui-datepicker table tr:hover td a{color:inherit!important}
.ui-datepicker table tr:nth-child(2n) td{background:inherit!important}

Thank you very much for your help!

  • Hello Pablo,

    I will try that thank you. It's a shame the Betheme developers didn't read this guide, otherwise they'd know not to use !important in a site-wide style sheet ;-)

    • Always look for a way to use specificity before even considering !important
    • Only use !important on page-specific CSS that overrides foreign CSS (from external libraries, like Bootstrap or normalize.css).
    • Never use !important when you're writing a plugin/mashup.
    • Never use !important on site-wide CSS.

  • Let's say I do want to use the child theme, what can I do to fix the icons issue?

  • Hi Pablo,

    Yes the problem persisted even with all plugins disabled. 

    I copied the fonts folder across to the child theme and that solved the problem, if anyone else has the same issue.

    Not the most ideal solution but I don't expect the icons css to be updated a lot, so should be fine. Otherwise I'll check with my host about CORS library.

    Thanks for your help!
