CSS Examples

The following examples show how you can customize your theme by making slight changes to existing CSS styles. Each example addresses a specific location on the page. The syntax applies specifically to the “Media” theme, but can be easily adapted to your current theme. Examine the style sheet used by your theme to become familiar with the styles. Then, experiment by entering CSS code directly into Edit Custom .css box, to see the effect on your store.

Use the Firefox plug-in Firebug to help you determine the specific names and values used in your theme. You can find the css class or id name of all items on any page by using your browser’s developer tool option if available. For example, you can point your mouse on any item on the page when using Google Chrome by right clicking and selecting “Inspect Element” in the menu list. A window will expand at bottom of your browser and will show the browser’s source code where you can find all the relevant css class or id names.

Use this code to remove the extra white space under the top navigation.

Search Box

Use this code to remove the quick search box in the header.

Link Style

Links are formatted according to the style sheet of your theme. You can change the color of the links in your theme by changing the color code that is assigned to the anchor tag.

a { color:#2166a0; text-decoration:underline; }
a:hover { text-decoration:none; }
:focus { outline:0; }

List Controls
