WordPress TwentyTen & TwentyEleven Theme Basic Editing for Non-Techies

December 31st, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

In the video above I demonstrate how to do some basic editing on the default WordPress themes (Twentyten and Twentyeleven) to reduce the header size and remove some of the items that, in my opinion, take up way too much space in the header. In the process, I show the basics of setting up a child theme and provide a glimpse into how I use local copies of WordPress running on my computer to make theme editing a lot quicker and simpler. I also demonstrate how to preview changes in Firebug and then copy those changes into your theme css file. This tutorial is intended for non-techies…if you are an expert, then this isn’t for you. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the tutorial, I’ve been playing around with TwentyEleven and found a plugin you might like, “twenty-eleven-theme-extensions”. It allows you to change the header height to whatever you like and adds other feature to change on the Template – it’s really cool, and perfect for those who don’t want to touch any html/php code.

    I’m confused as to where to find the import rule…in the video, the import rule comes from twenty ten child theme, but I don’t have a twenty ten child theme…I am working on twenty eleven…so where do I find or how do I create a rule?
