Custom Navigation on Custom Background Image (4 posts)

    I've searched and read so many threads not only via wordpress.org but via google, as well. At the risk of getting scolded for posting a question that has (surely?) been asked and answered countless times, I don't know what else to do, other than pull my hair out.

    I'm trying to integrate the style of my static site, badnursie.com with my new WP blog.

    WP theme: Twenty Eleven - Child
    PHP knowledge: Absolutely none

    I've already managed to resize my header via my child's functions.php to use temporarily.

    What I want is to completely remove the default nav bar and use my custom nav with my header as a background exactly as it is for my static pages.

    HTML for my nav list:

    <ul id="nav">
    <li><a class="current" href="index.html">home</a></li>
    <li><a href="about.html">about</a></li>
    <li><a href="/blog">blog</a></li>
    <li><a href="gallery.html">gallery</a></li>
    <li><a href="freebies.html">freebies</a></li>
    </ul> <!-- END navbar -->

    CSS for my nav list:

    [CSS code moderated - just post a link to you site]

    Would someone please be so kind as to just tell me exactly what to replace with what before I break out into hives?

    Add this to the bottom of your child theme style.css - it isn't complete, but will (should?) get you started.

    #access {
    background: none;
    box-shadow: none;
    clear: both;
    display: block;
    float: left;
    left: 160px;
    margin: 0 auto 6px;
    position: absolute;
    top: 150px;
    width: 100%;
    }
    
    #access ul {
    font: italic bold 20px/32px Georgia,"Times New Roman",Times,serif;
    }
    
    #access a {
    color: #D5754B;
    }
    
    #access li:hover > a, #access a:focus {
    background: none;
    color: #373737;
    }

    While I appreciate the quick reply and don't mean to appear ungrateful, I guess I'm just too noobified to make use of that crumb of info. Perhaps someone else could offer something more thorough? Please?
