  1. I am currently trying to style the menu with css.
    How do I know which css file to modify?
    Their are several css files for this theme and when I modified
    2c-r-fixed.css it appears to have conflicting issues because the
    image loads, but the old styling stays. Do I have to edit all css pages?

  2. the menu is styled in default.css. typically i prefer to copy this into my style.css and delete the import for default.css

    once you get your child theme set up properly (there is a sample in the thematic zip file!) my kaleidescope explosion color-coded and commented menu should help you get it styled quickly. see the sticky:

    ps- you do not have to edit ALL css files. but you have to understand that CSS stands for Cascading style sheets... which means that CSS rules 'cascade' downwards until they find a rule that comes later and changes the rule or is more specific. and then that new rule will cascade until it meets one that supersedes it. so if for example you set the body background to be black in the first stylesheet you import, and then set it to white in the 2nd, and then in the style.css you set it to be blue. it will end up blue as that was the last rule processed for that particular element.

  3. Thanks for the reply.
    I have spent the last to days studying but still having trouble. I have not worked with css in two years and I'm having trouble. My main issue is that I get lost in the WordPress layers. All though my understanding has increased 10 fold with the help of this forum.
    I don't understand the sf-menu layer and their seem to be a lot? My main focus is to style the primary menu and control it from my child them. I seem to be close but cant get the ends to line up.

    Thanks for all your hard work on this forum

  4. waynefwayne,

    Even with great guides like Helga's I would shoot myself without without Firefox's Firebug and web developer tools.
