    Hi guys,

    I appreciate that this is most likely a general problem and not a problem with the theme itself, but I was hoping someone can help me as I can’t for the life of me find a solution that I can understand and implement, after spending quite some time doing google searches.

    Basically I created a Child Theme and I have no problem overriding the parent’s main stylesheet.

    HOWEVER, there is a stylesheet in a subdirectory: /victoria/css/shortcodes.css and I can’t override no matter what I try.

    I have tried:
    – replicating the subdirectory and style sheet in the child theme directory – doesn’t work
    – calling the stylesheet using the @import function:
    @import url(“../victoria/css/shortcodes.css”); – doesn’t work
    – using !important in the child theme’s stylesheet – doesn’t work (because that particular attribute also has !important in the shortcodes.css stylesheet?)

    I’m out of ideas. What am I missing?

    Any help would be very much appreciated!
