Reply To: Some CSS advice

Jason Bobich

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.

Here are some selectors that you can fiddle with from your Child theme’s custom.css file in terms of padding and margin in this area.

/* 1st Gallery */
.home .featured-element-2 .element-content .element-inner { … }
.home #wrapper .featured-element-2 .gallery { … }
.home #wrapper .featured-element-2 .gallery .gallery-icon { … }

/* 2nd Gallery */
.home #wrapper .main-bottom .gallery { … }
.home #wrapper .main-bottom .gallery .gallery-icon { … }

Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – 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.
