    I’m making a website with your brilliant theme and everything is just about perfect, but:

    Is it possible to make the tagline (under the headline) non-italic? I tried to poke around in the editor, but i suspect that I need to play with some kind of CSS.

    Hello,

    For any kinds of style changes you want to make to the theme that are outside of the scope of the options provided are CSS customizations you’d need to make to the theme. 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‘s custom.css or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    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.

    Sorry for asking totally noob questions but I would hate to ruin my site… You suggest that I write the changes in the CSS Stylesheet Editor within wordpress right?

    I no little to nothing about CSS but that would be something like:

    .tagline {
    	font-style: normal;
    }

    I tried that but it doesn’t seem to do the trick.

    It’s a good time to learn, if you want to make customizations. 😉

    See in the right column that screenshot; it tells you exactly what in the theme is effecting that area. This is what you’d do in your inspector by doing Right Click > Inspect Element either in your Firefox or Chrome web browser.

    So, the line used here is:

    .header_logo .tagline { ... }

    And so in order for you to override, you need to either match it or write something more specific. So this:

    .tagline { ... }

    … would be less specific. However, this would work:

    .header_logo .tagline {
    	font-style: normal;
    }

    Thank you SO much… I promise to go straight to lynda.com and search for a CSS guide 🙂

    And thank you again very much for some amazing themes!

    🙂
