Differences aside form other posts, have you sorted this problem yet? There were a couple of files that needed changing in the core to get mine indented correctly. If you like I could track them down.
We used to be able to do this. It seems to be a glitch because there is no distinguishing mark up so the old .children selector doesnt work. But CSS can be applied to pages children – unless we have missed something.
I tried with CSS but had difficulties. Luckily I found someone that had modified a couple of root files and now it works perfectly as on my site. It would only take me a few minutes to find them on my local server.
Was this change designed or just an unfortunate side effect of the other improvements?
