    Hi, I'm wondering if someone can help. I'm using the Baby log theme and I'm trying to change the menu and widget menu to Black with Yellow writing, I have been playing and sort of stuffed up- webpage is http://feebeecreations.com.au/

    The yellow i want for the writing is #f7f40f

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    Are you using Firebug to work with CSS? It will show you exactly where the CSS is coming from - and then you can use that code in a child theme or custom CSS - to change it.

    Make sure that you are not making changes in theme files - they will be lost when the theme is updated.

    ok i have downloaded firebug and it works well, i think i have found what to edit- so when you say to change in the child or custom css rather then in the theme, do you mean if i go to my cpanel and edit from that admin instead? Sorry I'm still a learner when the editing side of things.

    No I mean you should not be modifying theme files at all (style.css or any php files ). See http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    or for just custom CSS: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jetpack/

    Any changes you make in theme files will be lost upon updating the theme -- you really don't want to go there :).

    Should have also added - -when you find the styles using Firebug -- copy the CSS code you want to change to the child or custom CSS - and make the changes there.
