ROUNDED CORNERS- twenty eleven (15 posts)

    Hi guys! Is there any way to add rounded corners to the twenty eleven theme? I've been trying for the past couple of hours with no luck. Also, if any one knows how to get rounded menu tabs I would be forever indebted!

    http://www.taradillon.com is my site!

    tasty.donuts- thank you very much! But where in my style sheet does the code go? I'm very new to this.

    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress 3.2 theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues.

    Create a child theme for your customisations. Once your child theme is active, we should be able to help with the customisation.

    Does IE support rounded corners yet?

    Cheers

    @esmi. Do you think the mods would make that a sticky topic at the top of the list if we asked and if you think it'd be worth it?

    Just trying to save you some work!

    It's not just Twenty Eleven that shouldn't be edited. The same goes for Twenty Ten and most of the more recent themes in http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/

    I know it's tiresome posting (and reading) the same message over & over again but, longer term, it is working. We're seeing many more child theme support questions than we were, say, a year ago. Plus, experience suggests that the very people who need to be told about this are the ones who won't bother reading a sticky topic. :-)

    That said, if you think this should be discussed, why not join the forum volunteers mailing list and post it as a suggestion? I'm sure you'd be a welcome addition to the list.

    Sorry - missed this first time around:

    Does IE support rounded corners yet?

    No - not without a javascript hack.

    Hi esmi,

    Thanks for that answer. I'm sure you're right about the child themes business. People seem to think it's hard, but in fact one of WP's great advantages IMNSHO is that it's so easy, to create a child theme. And please keep adding your comment every time I forget to remind people to use a child. It's a public service :-)

    Anyway, mustn't hijack the thread, must I.

    As for IE, yes, that's what I understood. I thought tdillon2011 should be aware before believing the problem solved when it's only solved for proper^H^H^H^H^H^H non-IE browsers. The hack you're referring to is this one, I guess? That's what I've used in the past, anyway.

    Cheers

    I'm not sure everyone agrees with you. ;-)

    If it helps at all, I recently uploaded bare bones child themes for Twenty Eleven & Twenty Ten:

    http://quirm.net/themes/twenty-eleven-child/
    http://quirm.net/themes/twenty-ten-child/

    So those who find the prospect of creating their own child themes is still too daunting can just upload those themes to get started.

    Yes, it does help. Thanks. I'll try to remember to point people in that direction if appropriate.

    I'm bringing this back up because I'm still interested in making rounded corners for 2011. Let me stipulate:

    1) I fully acknowledge the importance of child themes, know how to use them, and use them consistently.
    2) NO original 2011 themes will be edited, harmed, molested, or interfered with in the making of the rounded corners.
    3) I am currently working on a child theme.

    Having said all that, where in the stylesheet can one go to add the requested rounded corners?

    Thanks.

    I may be misunderstanding you, but you just add the appropriate rule to your stylesheet (presumably style.css) for the box you want to add rounded corners to.

    The rounded corners will not appear in some (?) versions of IE without you adding some JavaScript (presumably in your child theme's header.php file).

    There's an explanation here, which looks pretty good.

    Thanks! There's a great explanation here. My problem is that I haven't done much with modifying 2011, so I can't discern where, in the stylesheet, to apply the rules. I wish there were a "get to know 2011" article somewhere around, but I haven't been able to locate one. I'm like the original poster (who kind of got weary and went away)--I haven't completely deciphered the stylesheet yet.

    Anywhere you like.

    Since you're using a child theme, just add it to the end of your child theme's child sheet and it will take precedence over any rules previously declared (via your @import statement at the top of your child theme's style.css file, immediately after the comments). You sometimes have to use specificity, if the parent child theme stylesheet contains a more specific rule. Which is why it's a good idea to use FireBug so you can see the level of specificity required.

    Cheers
