    This page:
    is a staple for the first time wordpress theme-builder. I rely on it.
    Installed 3.5 today, it came complete with twentytwelve theme.

    I had some challenge creating my first child theme for twentytwelve, though. The source of my frustration- the WordPress codex instructions tell us to override the parent theme css with this line

    #site-title a {
        color: #009900;

    site-title is not an id (as denoted by #) it is a class.
    so this code must read:

    .site-title a {
        color: #009900;

    I know this is a small thing for me to complain about... but it is the Codex! It shouldn't lead newbies into simple trouble.
