buddypress Frisco theme changing header with CSS (5 posts)

    I know how to edit a css file and I'm using Firebug to locate the CSS and then changing the CSS file in the WordPress/appearence/editor portion of the WP admin.

    I can turn off the blue header gradient in firebug written like this:
    #header #search-bar {
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(center top , #098AC6 0%, #098AC6 15%, #055478 100%) repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    filter: none;

    How ever I CAN NOT locate that line of code in the actual CSS Style Sheet in Frisco.

    I've even looked for it in the BP Default with no success.

    I've also added a background image CSS to #header and #header #search-bar and the blue gradient is still there.

    Thanks,
    Wells

    You'll need to add new styles to override old ones.

    Try downloading (and installing) this Custom CSS Manager plugin and use its allocated section of the dashboard to hold your CSS modifications.

    Yes but I know enough to do my changes right in the css file. The crazy thing to me is that I can't find the line of code in the child theme or the original BP default.

    Why would it show in firebug but not the css file in the theme itself?

    Why do you need to find the originating CSS?

    Yes correct.

    When I do nothing happens. It's like the code I see in Firebug is overriding my new css.
