code in child theme (2 posts)

    How do I change the stylesheet of a twentyeleven child? I am new at this, and I have read all the instructions several times as well as searching the forums. Do I copy all the code from the parent stylesheet to the child? Or if I make changes in the parent, do those changes affect the child but remain permanent if the parent is updated? To be more specific, I am trying to make the central header, graphic, menu, etc. in twentyeleven to automatically resize to the size of a screen instead of being smaller in the middle of the screen. Thank you for your help.

    You only put changes in the child theme style.css file - and yes, those are safe from theme updates. See:

    For specific help with changes to your site , you'll need to post a link to your site once you have a child theme set up.
