I am trying to edit the colours of certain elements in my child theme on wordpress (the specific theme is Kleo if relevant). I have been doing fine adding in custom css to the child, however it seems the parent theme has labelled a few options as '!important' (at least that is what shows up when I inspect the elements in chrome). I'm not sure why they've done this but it makes for somewhat clunky code when I subsequently have to include '!important' on everything else I edit to overcome the parent's '!important'.
I was wondering if anyone knows of ways to edit the parent theme's css or of any other way of getting around this problem.
Many thanks for any help
