CSS & Wordpress Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello. I call myself having studies this forum but I can't seem to find the answer to this question. If it has been answered, please excuse me for re-posting it. If it has been answered, I would appriciate it if someone would direct me to that thread.I am using the Engrave Lite (Free Version) theme by Think Up Themes, Ltd. in Wordpress. Please see the link here. I am having problems getting anything to render in the box to the right. It took me forever to finally find a way to closly duplicate the box on the left but I was finally able to get it done. I have been working on this for 3 days now, and can't make it work. From all of the reading I have done on the W3schools site, it seems like I should simply be able to enclose my information that should be displayed in that box between the p id tag and the and the close p tag. Like the word "Hello" in the following example:

<p id="rcorners1">Hello</p>

However, with this done, the word "Hello" shows at the bottom of the page just above the footer.My css code looks like this:[codeblock]<style>#rcorners1 { position: relative; clear: top; top: 23px; right: -525px; border-radius: 9px; border: 1px solid #CCCCFF; background: -webkit-linear-gradient(white,#E5E5FF); /* For Safari 5.1 to 6.0 */ background: -o-linear-gradient(white, #E5E5FF); /* For Opera 11.1 to 12.0 */ background: -moz-linear-gradient(white,#E5E5FF); /* For Firefox 3.6 to 15 */ background: linear-gradient(white, #E5E5FF); /* Standard syntax */); /* For Safari 5.1 to 6.0 */ padding: 0px; width: 370px; height: 257px; } </style>[/codeblock] I have the css code in a plugin for custom css coding, and it seems to work because it shows the box. Does anybody have any ideas? It may be the theme. is there a way to override the theme if it is?Thanks for your time.

The first step in trying to get third party code to work is to open a problem ticket with the vendor. If the vendor is not providing the support, then you have a theme that should be discarded. If a vendor is not willing to support their product, then you need to look elsewhere for third party code.


Without a link to the site, there is no way of knowing if the problem is solvable. Most of the time with these things there is load time scripting to set styles that is almost impossible to get around. It is poor design to modify styles that way, but most of the themes do not anticipate that a developer might want to do something outside the normal limits of their software.
