Editing classes.

  • Jun. 20th, 2007 at 9:38 AM
I have a paid account and work with a theme layer with Bloom Blue as base theme. I found the base theme's screen.css and tried to copy paste and edit the different classes in my theme layer. So far I've tried to change:

.layout-twt #content
.layout-twt #header

None of them change anything however. I wondered if I need any other code to be able to override these default settings. I know I haven't got much yet, but before I make it all very messy I wanted to make sure I got these things edited.

Theme Layer.

Well, first off, I'd try putting the CSS (see below) into the Custom CSS part of the edit journal area, rather than using a theme layer. If you're only going to be working with CSS there's no need to use a custom theme.

You've got:

body {
background-color: #deebfe;

.layout-twt #content {
background-image: url(http://www.soronrille.com/livejournal/bg-content-twt.jpg)

.layout-twt #header {
background-image: url(http://www.soronrille.livejournal/bg-header-twt.gif);

In this CSS, you're missing a colon thingy (;) at the end of the first background image specification. Also, you could try putting inverted comas around the image location paths(i.e. "http://www.location.com/myimage.jpg"). I don't think that matters, but I always use them.

Oh god, I forgot the colon, how stupid! Well, it isn't working either though. Not even with the ".
I'm not only going to change the CSS, I just started with it. That's all :)
Well, I'm going to try and get another base theme and see if that works out...
Thanks though!

The "layout-xxx" classes aren't required to change the header image. It's all covered in the header tutorial mega-post here. Also, make sure you use the right class for your layout; .layout-wtt is the one for two sidebars on the right, not .layout-twt.
