Support » Themes and Templates » [TwentyEleven] changing the nav bar–not as easy as changing CSS?

    I’m trying to change the nav bar with my child theme, but I’ve learned that, despite changing #access in a child theme’s style.css, the nav bar’s style is generated over whatever CSS was supposed to replace it.

    So how exactly do I change the generator–wherever it is–to display the CSS from my child theme?

  • The CSS changes must be specific enough to override the parent CSS code — changing things using just #access may not actually affect all elements within that section of the page if they are more specifically styled in the parent CSS (i.e. #access ul li is more specific than just #access).

    If you want more specific help, post a link to your site.

    Hey thanks, that allowed more of my CSS to go through.

    Not all of it, though. i’m trying to change the height of #access ul to 36px instead of inherit. won’t let me, though. it interprets my only link’s css to have padding, which i removed in my child’s css file:

    The height of the element IS set to 36px (that’s what height controls). Are you talking about font size?

    looks like i’m just experiencing a longer-than-normal delay from my web host.

    marking this resolved, your solution worked. thanks!
