child themes and editor-styles.css (2 posts)

    I have a child theme setup to tweak the default twentyten theme. One of the changes I made was to turn off the italics for blockquotes within posts. Problem is, the editor-styles.css file for twentyten tells the WordPress editor to make italics within blockquotes format as font-style=normal so they'll display different from the italicized rest of the text. I want to change that.

    I created a new editor-styles.css file within my child theme directory and changed the blockquote settings. But it isn't being picked up. Rather, the editor is still referencing the /twentyten/editor-styles.css. Is there a way to override this within the child theme, rather than just editing the twentyten/editor-styles.css? I'd rather not have to make the change over again each time twentyten is updated.

    Hi,
    Use the !important rule this will override any other calls to the elements style attribute.

    Example:

    .my-content a{
       font: normal 12pt sans-serif !important;
    }
