I've searched and read so many threads not only via wordpress.org but via google, as well. At the risk of getting scolded for posting a question that has (surely?) been asked and answered countless times, I don't know what else to do, other than pull my hair out.
WP theme: Twenty Eleven - Child
PHP knowledge: Absolutely none
I've already managed to resize my header via my child's functions.php to use temporarily.
What I want is to completely remove the default nav bar and use my custom nav with my header as a background exactly as it is for my static pages.
HTML for my nav list:
<ul id="nav"> <li><a class="current" href="index.html">home</a></li> <li><a href="about.html">about</a></li> <li><a href="/blog">blog</a></li> <li><a href="gallery.html">gallery</a></li> <li><a href="freebies.html">freebies</a></li> </ul> <!-- END navbar -->
CSS for my nav list:
[CSS code moderated - just post a link to you site]
Would someone please be so kind as to just tell me exactly what to replace with what before I break out into hives?
