Hello,

It looks like you’re making some edits to theme files. Make sure to never do this because then you’ll never be able to update the theme. You can edit literally just about the entire theme from a Child theme. In the sample Child theme that came with the theme, there is a “custom.css” file already in place that proceeds all CSS files of the theme. You’d simply put all your CSS overrides in there.

For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

.style_slate #access li a { color: #9B9678; }

Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
