  • Resolved danhaskett


    Hi there,

    I have been modifying the Twenty Eleven theme using a child theme and have been fairly successful but there are just a couple of questions that I was wondering if anyone could help me with.

    My site is Weekly

    1. How can I remove the grey background colour that appears when hovering over the navigation buttons? I’ve tried to fix it with this but it doesn’t work –

    #access a:focus {background: none;}

    2. I’ve been trying to move the search button down a bit so that it is more in line with the buttons in the navigation menu but can’t seem to work it out…where would I be able to do this?

    3. I don’t want ANY bold text in the whole site, is there anyway of disabling this without having to go through each “bold” option?

    I’m trying to use firebug in firefox to find out what needs to be modified but sometimes it’s quite hard to find the right code…

    Any help would be much appreciated!

  • Background:

    You probably want:

    #access li:hover > a

    Haven’t tried it, but it looks right.



    Search box:

    #branding .with-image #searchform {
      bottom: -40px;



    Thanks for your help Pae, I appreciate it.

    De nada.

    I don’t have an answer for you third question. I suspect the answer is that you need to find out all the places where bold text is used (search for “bold” in the text of the stylesheet) and then add rules to overwrite them.

    You might start with:

    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {
      font-weight: normal;

    That will pick up any styles not reset anywhere in the style sheet and give you something to work on.
