    I just created a twenty twelve child theme. I’d like to make some minor adjustments, such as chaning the title and tagline font size and style and the menu bar color. Can I just go into Editor under appearences and add code below it? I tried copy and pasting some code already and the changes didn’t show up.

    This is what my editor looks like right now:

    /*
    Theme Name:     Twenty Twelve Child
    Theme URI:      http://oxfordinfrance.com/
    Description:    Child theme for the Twenty Twelve theme
    Author:         Jillian
    Author URI:     http://oxfordinfrance.com/about/
    Template:       twentytwelve
    Version:        0.1.0
    */
    
    @import url("../twentytwelve/style.css");

    First make sure that under Appearance > Themes , your current theme is your childtheme, then yes, go ahead and add the CSS under this line.

    @import url("../twentytwelve/style.css");

    You can make changes thru Appearance > Editor but SFTP is a lot better.

    I made sure that my current theme is my child theme and then I added CSS but it still didn’t change the size of my description. Any suggestions? I’m new to this and it is all very confusing!

    /*
    Theme Name:     Twenty Twelve Child
    Theme URI:      http://oxfordinfrance.com/
    Description:    Child theme for the Twenty Twelve theme
    Author:         Jillian
    Author URI:     http://oxfordinfrance.com/about/
    Template:       twentytwelve
    Version:        0.1.0
    */
    
    @import url("../twentytwelve/style.css");
    
    h2.site-description {
     color: #020202 !important;
     font-family: times New Roman;
     font-size: 22px!important;
     }

    It IS working – make sure you clear your browser cache.

    Also, you should not use the !important rule except when absolutely necessary – and here you don’t need to – it works fine without it.

    You’re right! Thank you so much!
