  • No, child theme styles follow the same CSS “rules” as any other styles – so you probably need to use more specific selectors.

    Firebug (or other browser tool) should show you which CSS is active — and then you should be able to use those same selectors in your child theme. Is that what you are doing?

    Can you be specific about what you are trying to change and the code you are using?

    here is my CSS…if you look I changed the size of the font to 25 but it is not changing on the page – what does that mean when a portion of the text has a line through it?

    Read up on CSS Specificity.
    You’re not using specific-enough selectors.

    Edit: Link amended.

    What font on what element – what are you trying to change? I can see all the CSS on your site – no need to post that.

    Are you using Firebug? It shows you all the information you need.

    I am using chrome developer tools

    It should do the same thing. When you look at whatever text you are trying to change, what does it show as the active CSS for that element?

    I got it thank you!
