Support » Themes and Templates » twentyten theme CSS questions – only two!

  • So, first of all, in the past 48 hours I have learned a lot about CSS from just looking up other people’s questions in this section, so a big thanks to everyone who’s ever answered anything on here, chances are you’ve already helped me! Having said that, I do still have two questions of my own:

    1. In the twentyten theme there is a black bar that runs between the main content and the footer. I’m not sure what section of code on what page I need to access to edit that bar – ideally I’d like it to match the vertical one I have between the content and the widgets.

    2. Whenever I hover my mouse over the drop down menu, a little box pops up with the alt-text for the link. It’s annoying and I’m not sure how to get rid of it.

    If anyone can help me with either of these issues, I’d be very grateful! The website is

  • I should add that the alt-text on the drop-down menu links shows up in Google Chrome, but it doesn’t happen in Explorer (I don’t have any other browsers on this computer, so I can’t speak to them). Could it be a Chrome thing?

    I think the black bar is in the css id colophon;

    #footer {

    margin-bottom: 20px;


    #colophon {

    border-top: 4px solid #000;

    margin-top: -4px;

    overflow: hidden;

    padding: 18px 0;


    just change the #000 to the green color you are using elsewhere, and change the size to what ever width you want.

    btw the alt text also shows up in FF
    I don’t see the alt text in the source,
    so maybe it’s hardcoded into the new menus and I haven’t played with those yet, sorry.

    Thanks so much for the help! I’ll be happy to be rid of that black bar, at least! 🙂
