How to modify the theme using a child theme

  • Kim



    Well I still see some offset in #sidebar_buttom & footer area

    Im trying hard to see where its coming from, not that easy 🙂

    Have You tried these two groups in Custom CSS or Child Theme – style.css :

    #sidebar_bottom {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #EEEEEE;
    border-top: 15px solid #CFCFCF;
    clear: both;
    margin-left: 263px;
    width: 900px;

    #footer {
    background: url("images/sprite_h.png") repeat-x scroll left -100px #000000;
    height: 66px;
    margin-left: 263px;
    width: 900px;

    Nice shoes by the way 🙂




    Thanks, Kim.

    Yeah, I added those but 263 px didn’t line it up for me so I edited to something like 225 px. I guess that makes it line up in mine but not everyone else’s. Is there some way to make the offset to it centers automatically rather than being an offset from the left?



    Today I updated to the new Graphene version and I’m having some trouble with a few different things. Firstly, my sidebar is not to the side of the content area – instead, it is floating either above (if I have it set to the left) or below (if I have it set to the right). My footer is also extending the entire way across the page rather than being ‘connected’ to the content area.

    Lastly, I’d like to know how to change the colour of the title bars in the sidebar, as well as the comment submit button and the “read more of this entry” button.

    Thank you!



    Yay, I figured out how to edit the comment and rest of entry buttons.



    Changed the sidebar title colours too! Awesome. Now I just need to fix the footer and the weird sidebar orientation. Sorry for all of the posts, I’m just figuring out how to use FireBug as well.



    Weirdly enough, I changed my column settings a few times and then it went back to normal. On to fixing the footer! Haha.



    I fixed everything! Thanks 😀



    You might add to your list of how to use Child Themes – that the user will need to ACTIVATE the child theme from Appearance -> Themes. That was my main problem :o)))



    Hi duskinchains

    Nice to see that You got along with Firebug.

    Works like a charm 🙂
