How to make a CSS change using Firebug

  • I’m trying to get the background color to change behind my ad space. I’m using firebug and can’t seem to locate the correct file in my editor. My site is here. html body.home div#wrapper div#section div.hidead is the location, When I add
    “background: repeat sienna” to

    element.style {
    margin-bottom: 2px;
    margin-top: 2px;

    It shows up how I want it to, but I am lost as to where I locate this in the backend. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Good question. To start working with CSS, you need to create a child theme of your theme so that you don’t mess around with the core code of the theme itself. This helps in debugging and updates for original themes becomes a doddle.

    How to create a child theme, you need to read this document and implement it step by step to get to know it thoroughly!!.

    Hope this gets you started.

    Thanks! I figured out how to do the child theme creation part, I’m assuming I could just add something in the stylesheet… What would I have to put in for code?

    You may find this forum useful. When querying specific CSS properties and values, the query expands beyond the scope of WordPress forums.
