    I want to change a few small things in the themes css file such as centering some of the text, but I simply cannot find the stylesheet.

    I’ve already went to: Appearance – Editor – style.css
    but all I see when I go there is:

    /*
    Theme Name: Alyeska
    Description: A simple business theme by Theme Blvd.

    /* This theme’s primary styles can be found in /assets/css/theme.css */

    Hello,

    The theme has many CSS files that can be found in /assets/css/ and /framework/frontend/assets/css/. You’re not going to be able to get to these files through your theme editor in your WordPress admin panel unless you have a plugin like WP Editor installed. — But trust me when I say digging through these files is not how you want to be making CSS customizations.

    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 your custom, overriding styles either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    Make sure to give this video a watch: http://vimeo.com/41331677

    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.

    I installed the WP Editor as shown but I’m not seeing the “assets” folder in the theme editor. It only shows the main theme files.

    ???????????

    A couple months ago, when we released Alyeska v3, we started including a new child theme that no longer has an assets folder because now all of your custom styles can simply go in style.css of your child theme. This is new and why we no longer include the above child theme video in your documentation any more. So, you don’t really need to the WP Editor plugin if you don’t want it.
