This is probably a dumb question but im new to this whole WP thing so please excuse ignorance/stupidity.
Im making a child theme using twenty ten as the parent.
im having trouble figuring out how to get the menu looking the way i want it.
I need to use a bg color (which was easy) but also need to add colored buttons - which will also require me altering the height of the nav bar.
Basically i had an existing site layout that i did in html/css and now i need to turn it into a wordpress theme. ive made significant progress altering the twenty ten theme to suit my needs but i am having trouble with the top nav (described above) and the sidebar nav (spreading out links and adding buttons).
so here it what it looks like right now:
and here it what it needs to look like:
for the sidebar im using the "simple-sidebar-navigation" plugin but when i tell it to use a specific stylesheet it doesnt seem to work.
does it have certain class and id names hard coded into it that i havent discovered?
