[resolved] Twenty Eleven Child Theme not showing changes (5 posts)

    I've got an active 2011 child theme working and I'm now trying to make some changes to the header font. However, any examples I use and put into the childs style.css file, don't seem to show up. I know I'm missing something here. In my searching it would seem that some of the other themes have portions that override the child theme. I'm wondering if this might be my issue and how to go about finding it? I cannot seem to locate where the original 2011 theme has its style.css located so I can look at it. Does anyone know where in the files the header information for 2011 is located?

    Thanks,
    Kevo

    The best way to work with CSS is by using a browser tool such as Firebug (addon for Firefox) - it shows you the CSS code for the element you want to change - so then you can copy that bit of CSS code to your child theme and make the change there.

    If you post a link to your site, someone can likely give you more specific help.

    Well that kinda helps. I still can't find where I change the color and font for the heading? I can change the color for the text in the body of the page, but nothing with the header. I really didn't think this would be that hard to change.

    Ah, I just spied on your site (assuming it's the one in your profile) and found out what the problem is - you're using the dark option for twentyeleven - see this:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes#Note_on_Twenty_Eleven_and_using_the_Dark_Theme_or_Link_Color_option

    So the code you can use is this:

    #site-title a {
        color: red !important;
    }

    Obviously, use whatever color you want.

    Sorry you had to struggle with this - that's one reason it always helps to post a link to your site :).
