To optimize the website, I tried several things: 1. Move all the css into a Custom.css file and minimize it as Custom.min.css 2. Copy Style.css into a Defer.css or All.css file and try serving that from my website. 3. In the process I found that the "style.css" file in the lower right DESIGN is totally empty! Yet from the STYLES css in the center there is css code. How do I fix this problem?
Also I would like to know how to copy the Styles.css to a file outside of the BSS easily so I can minimize it. Additionally, I thought that if I EXPORT the website, it would save the STYLES.css but it does not seem to do that.
Additionally when I right click on the DESIGN heading STYLES and try to export a file there is no choice for that, only Import css, Create css, Link external css, Create folder and Include Order.
In the center CSS area where it says STYLES when I click on that there is css code. When I click in the OVERVIEW on a COMPONENT, the css changes, showing the css for that COMPONENT (I believe). I don't know where in the world that CSS is stored I thought it used to be stored in the DESIGN styles.css file but that is empty now.
When I try to right click and SAVE AS the STYLES heading in the Center CSS area, there is nothing I can do. Same for my Custom.css file when I have it up in that area and highlighted.
In the Center CSS area there is a "Create" button. With STYLES hightlight I can click "Create" and a new css statement is started. If I click on the arrow I have a choice of all the files in the DESIGN css area, or a "New Stylesheet" If I pick "New Stylesheet" an empty untitled.css is made. What happens if I pick one of the existing files? I HAVE NO IDEA!!!!! And I have not done it because I don't want to mess this up any further. ---BTW This should be clearer to the user!!! I think "Create" means "Create Css" but I could be wrong.
I would like to understand how STYLES.css works, and would like to fix my installation. I would also like an easier way to "Export" a given CSS file to some location outside the BSS file or into the Export directory, so that I can use that CSS, then minify it and then upload it to my website with Filezilla.
I need to make small changes to spacing, color etc that are mostly in the CSS, I need a way to SAVEAS a specific file, and I am getting to the point where I don't need to change the index.html as much (each time I have to doctor it a bit at the top and bottom to make it faster).
Thanks for a great program! Rick
PS Also under Publish Options > Publish Tab it takes a very long time to finish with a note to hit the "Publish" button in lower left. I hit the button and nothing seems to happen. The computer spins up. It never completes..?? We need a progress bar or something.
