    I am using new Twenty Ten Template. I have manage to work my way through a myriad of issues...being new to all of this WP. I want to change the Title font type ONLY and I can't seem to accomplish this. WHen I change the font style, it changes it in the Nav Bar, the sidebar etc. I can't seem to find where I could only change it for h2 title of the page font.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks alot:-)

    Don't edit the Twenty Ten theme! Your changes will be over-written the next time you upgrade WordPress or the theme. For this reason, it is recommended that you consider creating a child theme for your customisations.

    Oh my gosh....I had no idea! Thank you for that info esmi :-)

    I have the entire site done now...do I have to redo the whole thing...or if I just set it to the CHILD THEME...everything will stay the same when an update occurs...is that correct?

    I have the entire css style sheet of my new look saved. So I think I can do this. However I still like the set up I have except for changing the one h2 font type and color. Do I just create a separate style for it to get only it to change and not the Nav bar and other headers? I am not quite sure how to go about this.

    Sorry I am just getting into this css styles and am unsure of what to do.

    Thanks to all.

    Back again...I thought I followed the directions but I get this error message:
    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

    Name Description
    Twenty Ten Weddings Theme
    The parent theme is missing. Please install the "wp-content/themes/twentyten-weddings" parent theme.

    I have a style.css in the folder and I actually put in all the other files from twenty ten. So what am I missing. Where does the parent theme go?

    I changed the style sheet to this:
    Theme Name: Twentyten Weddings Theme
    Description: The 2010 child wedding theme for WordPress
    Author: Retired Innkeeper
    Version: Child Weddings theme version 1.0

    Is this correct?

    Make sure Template name says twentyten in your information header of a child theme.

    Here is an example information header of a child theme’s style.css:

    Theme Name: Twenty Ten Child
    Theme URI: http: //example.com/
    Description: Child theme for the Twenty Ten theme
    Author: Your name here
    Author URI: http: //example.com/about/
    Template: twentyten
    Version: 0.1.0

    As with any WordPress theme, the information header must be at the top of the file, the only difference being that in a child theme the Template: line is required, so that WordPress knows which theme is the parent of the child theme.

    Yes thank you. I finally got that after reading the Child Themes section.

    However, now I see it tell me that if the original template changes, so too will my new child???

    One problem I still have is that sub categories are not lining up properly in the navigation. I haven't changed any of that code and am comparing old style sheet with new one and can't find what is doing this.

    Look here: http://luraypageweddings.com/services/
    why when you click to view dropdowns does it not line up properly.
    Note: this only seems to be happening in Firefox
