I need help with a small issue.

I want the child theme style.css file to be loaded from scratch since I'm doing heavy graphic modification and no all the changes are properly loaded.

I know this can be done using the style.css?ver=XXXX.

I see that my website is now loading the version 5.3 that I imagine being the wordpress version running on the website atm.

What files (where and how) do I need to change to solve this problem?



you can define the version when enqueuing the file :

add_action("wp_enqueue_scripts", function () {

        , get_stylesheet_uri() // = get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . "/style.css"
        , ["parent-style"]
        , wp_get_theme()->version // use the child theme version

  • Is this supposed to go in the function.php file? In the main or child theme folder? – Ghees Dec 2 '19 at 11:06
  • in functions.php of the child theme – Kaperto Dec 2 '19 at 11:12
  • So I'll paste the code there and I'll see. Thank you! – Ghees Dec 2 '19 at 11:23
  • I'm afraid this isn't working. I put the exact same code int the child theme function.php file, but it's still loading the old version of the style.css – Ghees Dec 5 '19 at 10:36
  • look the source in the browser to be sure to have style.css?ver=.... – Kaperto Dec 5 '19 at 10:48
