Support » Fixing WordPress » Editing Element Style (CSS)

  • I not too familiar with codes, but I’m learning. I know that is not specified by a CSS file but how do I come about editing it.

    I edited the paddings, using inspect, so if you look into the, it will show you something like this: {
    padding-top: 0px;
    padding-bottom: 0px;

    Whereas the elements section shows:

    <section class=”et_pb_fullwidth_header et_pb_module et_pb_bg_layout_light et_pb_text_align_center et_pb_fullwidth_header_0″ style=”
    padding-top: 0px;
    padding-bottom: 0px;

    So how do I go about editing it in the editor, I’ve got my child theme already up. Help me, please :'(

    You need to write your own CSS that ‘overrides’ the current CSS. Is this how you’ve been making your other CSS modifications?



    you can style it using with regards respect to that specific section class.

    .et_pb_fullwidth_header et_pb_module {
    <your style here >

    If that style is overwriting try using the important tag

    @yahya It still does not override the CSS after I’ve used the important tag.

    @andrew Yes I’ve been making my CSS modifications this way using Child Theme, am I doing it wrong? but it does work most of the time if it’s not element style.

    btw, appreciate the quick reply guys!



    Can you share the URL?

    @yahya Sure, thanks for taking your time bro!
    As you can see, the padding-top and bottom of the “SERVICE” background color is currently at 50px.
