  1. I've got the Power Blog child theme and love the functionality of it, but I'm wanting to do a different colour scheme. No matter what I change in the stylesheet, it ends up still looking the same. What could I be doing wrong?

  2. *scratches head*
    If I'm looking at just color changes for various things on the blog, I add, at the very bottom of my style.css, something like this:

    /*Color Edits*/
    body {
    color blah blah blah
    #header {
    #footer {
    etc, with whatever else I want to change
    If it's at the very bottom of your style sheet, it's the end of the cascade and should appear.

    I had a strange problem with Wordpress a short while ago when I upgraded to 2.9.1, where changes made in wordpress's editor wouldn't "take", no matter what I did. I ended up having to overwrite wp-admin/theme-editor.php and then everything was all right.

    Other than that, maybe a caching problem?

  3. Hi,

    could you please provide some more details 'bout what you are trying to do?

    Changing the colors of your blog using Firebug works.

  4. I figured out what I was doing wrong. I didn't bother to notice that Power Blog was still taking its color and font styles from the default stylesheet.

  5. .. but you are not changing the color and font styles in the original Thematic files?!

  6. No, no. I'm doing everything in a copied file of the style.css from the Power Blog theme.

  7. Ok, still having some trouble. I've got the header, footer, and main sections changed as far as color.

    Now my problem is changing the overall background. I can't seem to get the tag right. And I'm trying to remove the category list but can't seem to figure that out either.

    Edit: Nevermind, the background change. Now I just need to get rid of the categories.
