Some basic design mods

    Hi Jason,
    I have 2 small design mods for this homepage. Since I haven’t messed with the CSS yet, I thought I’d ask advice before trying this out. As the screenshot illustrates, I’d like to:|
    1. Butt the header graphic to the top of the nav. Right now it looks like I have a 25px gutter.
    2. I’d like to add a red background to the footer area.

    Hello Don,

    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.

    #branding #header_content .container { ... }
    #bottom .footer_content { ... }

    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.
