[resolved] Style.css for Twenty Ten: Need to change font and font colour (6 posts)

    I'm using Twenty Ten because of it's simplicity, stability and predictable results.

    I know it must be ridiculously obvious to anyone else but I can't find where to edit the style.css to change the font-family for the menu. I want a higher contrast link colour in the menu body and I can't understand where the stanza for that is. I want to change the background colour on mouse over too.

    Apart from that I also can't see where to declare the font-family for the name of a logged in member on the right side in the Primary Widget Area.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    style.css is located in Appearance>Editor or you can edit it thought ftp. wordpress>wp-content>themes>twentyten>style.css

    If you're not using a Child Theme, and if the theme doesn't have a designated section of the dashboard for CSS modifications then install this Custom CSS Manager plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-css-manager-plugin

    Then use its "CSS Code" section of the dashboard to hold your CSS modifications.

    Alternatively use your Child Theme style.css file to hold your CSS modifications.

    I made a backup of the plain vanilla style.css then modified the css. There are some comments in the file that help a little bit. Thank you both for trying to help but what I need is someone to point out where the section of the style.css is that controls the menu's font-family, font colour, colors of hover and visited.

    I repeat I know where in the style.css is the section that controls the menu. I've already been parsing through it but don't understand where that section is.

    Using a web inspecting tool like Firebug will help you figure out what you need to change. Also, check out http://themesandco.com/snippet/firebug-best-spent-6-minutes/ for more information.
