Help with CSS

  1. Hi
    I'm trying to change my page "investment" with CSS, I have Dreamweaver and when I design the page in Dreamweaver and I try to copy CSS and paste it into post/html part of it it doesn't show all the CSS changes (color, font). I have a table within a div tag "wrapper", but it only shows the "table" with no modifications(CSS). I have an upgrade Custom CSS, and I tried to past CSS into it but it doesn't do anything....

    My theme is Nishita

    thank you

    The blog I need help with is lanasphoto.wordpress.com.

  2. Note that CSS is theme specific, so you cannot use the CSS stylesheets from other themes with the themes at WordPress.COM. You cannot build or use your own custom theme built from scratch at WordPress.com.

    The only themes we can use are those found here > Appearance > Themes
    This is a multiuser blogging platform. All blogs wearing the same theme are using the same underlying template and we cannot access the underlying files and edit templates or themes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    There are two free themes, Sandbox and Toolbox designed to allow maximum flexibility for CSS editing and creating new “skins”. Toolbox is more modern and includes a lot of support for CSS3 and HTML5, so it is really only limited by your skills and knowledge.

    If you have CSS editing experience the upgrade will allow you to stylize the appearance of themes you find here > Appearance > Themes, but will not allow you to change the functionality, by editing the underlying template.

  6. @ mrkcollection
    All CSS editing is theme specific here at WordPress.com. This thread is on the Nishita theme only.

    This CSS Forum is available only to those free hosted WordPress.com bloggers who have purchased a custom design upgrade from WordPress.com. The WordPress.com blog linked to your username is devoid of any blogger created content. Provided you have actually purchased a custom design upgrade from WordPress.com for a free hosted WordPress.com blog, please start your own thread by clicking this link > http://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/css-customization#postform

    Note: We do not provide support to WordPress.org bloggers on this forum. That support is here > http://wordpress.org/support/ Please read > WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org: The Differences

  7. I have Dreamweaver and when I design the page in Dreamweaver and I try to copy CSS and paste it into post/html part of it it doesn't show all the CSS changes (color, font).

    When you copy and paste code from another source, you must also consider other CSS being applied by the theme on the WordPress.com side. Of all the CSS that is applied on a web page, the CSS with the most specific rule will be used. It's possible that when you add your CSS from Dreamweaver that it is not specific enough compared to the CSS in your theme.

    There are a couple of options at this point. The best would be to ask for help with a specific example of what you're trying to do. That will make it easier for us to try to help.

  8. I have a table within a div tag "wrapper", but it only shows the "table" with no modifications(CSS).

    Try using a name other than "wrapper" for the div tag.

    Also keep in mind that the theme you are using may have CSS which changes how tables look. If you don't want that to happen, you need to find the relevant CSS and add rules to replace them to override what is in the theme.

  9. @mrkcollection, it would help if you were to ask questions about separate themes in a new thread and please include the link to your WordPress.com blog. You can create a new topic here: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/css-customization#postform
