    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to implement the nanobloggers method but I can't seem to get the blog to display properly using the custom css file that came with the product.

    I have uploaded the custom css file which was just a text file with css coding inside it. The trouble is that within the theme itself is another file called custom.css.

    Can 2 custom.css files work together or do I have to delete the thesis original?

    Any help would be appreciated guys... (I have been at this for over 2 hours)

    Thanks

    T10

    First of all, I'm not familiar with nanobloggers method, but I'm familiar with how CSS works.

    The elements of the last CSS loaded will be the active CSS. If two CSS files have the same name (but maybe in different locations), just remove one or rename it.

    By the way, two CSS files with the same name is not usual practice or even improbable because CSS files are usually stored in one location.

    I am not familar with the nanoblogger method but I do know you can't have two .css files with the same name trying to style a page.

    I think this would be your easiest approach...

    1. Install the "Thesis Openhook" Plugin and activate it. Once activated you will notice a lot more options in the wordpress dashboard.

    2. Click on the "Thesis Custom Styling" button in the 'Appearence' section. The Thesis custom css file is now in your right window and you should be able to edit it right in your WP dashboard.

    3. Open your nanoblogger custom.css file and cut the file and paste it into the Thesis custom css file (above).

    4. Save the Thesis update and you should be ready to go. The Thesis custom css file will overwrite the original css file and update your installation.

    The Thesis Openhook plugin shortcuts a lot of work including page styling, headers, backgrounds, css files, almost everything - eliminating the need to edit the core php files.

    Kanshu and LV thanks a bunch for guiding me with this. In a way I feel terrible because the problem wasn't the css at all. I found an option within the theme options panel that displays a drop shadow around the layout. This was the effect I was trying to achieve but wrongly assumed that it was the custom.css that was responsible for this.

    It's all good now guys, and thanks once again for your help.

    Cheers,

    "Attention! In order to edit your custom files, you'll need to change the name of your custom-sample folder to custom."

    I can't seem to even get to my files, let alone rename that folder... could this be because perhaps my nameservers haven't updated yet? Cause if not, I'm experiencing a problem I have never had before....

    Solved the problem... nvm!
