Twenty Ten class missing in Style.css?

    I’ve been trying to make the sidebar a little wider in my twenty ten theme, I am using aardvark and firebug in firefox and noticed it says the sidebars class is “xoxo”, I can not find nor do I believe its even it the style.css file at all!

    What should I do?, create it myself in the style.css and assign a width?

    there are often more css selectors output in the html code, than are used in style.css;

    however the css id for the sidebars are #primary and #secondary

    .xoxo is a css class of one of the widgets.

    be aware that twenty ten will be overwritten with the next upgrade of your wordpress version;
    consider http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    could I copy just the files I edited and make a child theme with those and just re-upload a fresh copy of twenty ten and overwrite the old theme? Basically just moving the files I edited to the child theme folder?

    first, make a backup copy of your existing theme

    Basically just moving the files I edited to the child theme folder?

    yes, that is part of the precedure.
    you have read the codex documentation?

    No, the codex section of the wordpress site is confusing to me, I read that it is suppose to make theme developing easier, but looking at the code, it looks complicated and unorganized. I could edit themes on WordPress 2.X easy, WP 3.0+ has really changed.

    I successfully created my twenty ten child theme.
