Problem with CSS triggering off of body_class tags? (2 posts)

    I've got a "Bare Page" template added to the Twenty Eleven theme. To get a different style I'm using "My Custom CSS" plug-in (which Rocks) to do page-specific CSS, based on the class .page-template-bare-page-php which I get from body_class().

    These rules work fine:
    .page-template-bare-page-php .entry-header {
    display: none;
    .page-template-bare-page-php .entry-content {
    width: 100%;
    .page-template-bare-page-php .entry-content {
    padding: 0;

    This one doesn't work with the .page-template-bare-page-php in it. If I take it out, it does.

    /* Doesn't work */
    .page-template-bare-page-php .singular.page .hentry {
    padding: 0;

    /* Works */
    .singular.page .hentry {
    padding: 0;

    I'd appreciate a pointer to the CSS selector subtlety I'm missing.

    please create a child theme http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes to work with, instead of editing Twenty Eleven directly.
    it is vitally important to have an unedited default theme (which is Twenty Eleven for wp3.2) in case of problems; also, a child theme will help to keep customisations during an upgrade.

    can you post a link to your site?

    have you checked that the css classes are output on the pages using the page template?
