Hi,

When I make a site it is making 5 CSS files but it is only using 3 of these in html code of the pages.
Why is this?

I also can see that of the 3 used the 2 is quite difficult to read and modify.
Is this on purpose?

Can You give some pointers how to read the 2 files?
coffeegrinder.min.css
wireframe-theme.min.css

You should not be touching those CSS files Jens in any way. Leave them alone or you could cause all sorts of problems. Instead, if you want to make custom changes, you link in a custom.css under the Layouts and define your own styles.

Hi,

As I understand You would ad an additional CSS sheet with my custom back etc..
I should not edit main.css that is readable and good structured?

You did not comment on my point that RLM exports 2 CSS files that are not used.
Will the new RLM export more "clean" website, where unused data is not exported or do we have to clean up Ourselfes?

As far as I can see, those two files:

coffeegrinder.min.css
wireframe-theme.min.css

they ARE the ones being used. You have them in two versions, the other versions are without the '.min' in the name. Those are the ones that can be read, but you should not change anything! The two files you mentioned are the same files, just minified (hence the '.min' in the name) so that the pages load faster. Because they are minified (compressed), it's very hard to read them.
Ha en riktig god dag!

I think the main point is that CC:
-- provides the compressed files for the site to use to optimize the site performance
-- provides the uncompressed files so you can see easily what is in the compressed files without having to use a 3rd party to read the compressed files
-- provides a way to add a custom.css file so that you can (1) safely make changes without messing up the exported code and (2) so that your changes do not get overwritten when the project is re-exported.
