Fifteen Theme: Finding CSS code (4 posts)

    I'm pretty new to WordPress and am currently finding my way around customising my Fifteen Theme. I have inspected my site via Firebug, and located CSS lines where I can change the main content background colour from the default grey to white...but when I go to my dashboard>appearance>editer, and try to locate that CSS line in the stylesheet I cant find it...in fact the CSS that comes up on Firebug doesnt appear to be the same generally. Any ideas on what might be wrong or what I need to do? thanks very much!!!

    Do not edit the theme itself. First create a child theme for your changes. Or install a custom CSS plugin.

    OK great, will do. I've had a look at different sites providing instructions on how to set up a child theme...and they all mention creating a new theme folder to begin with...but they don't make it clear where to create this new folder...Can you help?

    The child theme's folder should be in wp-content/themes, the same place that all the other theme folders are located.
