How do I find CSS?

I know where to put the Custom CSS in Ning, and I have a small amount of CSS and HTML experience. My roadblock has been finding the code to change. For example, we liked the Religion template, but the yellowish horizontal bar with the menu is too wide. I have Firefox Developer Edition, Web Developer, and the Chrome Inspector; do I use these or something else to find the code that needs to be changed? There are many other changes that I need to make, and would love to know how to do this. Any pointers would be greatly appreciate. Thank you, Dan.

    What exactly are you hoping to change?

    If you look back through my discussions, you'll find a lot of code to use.

  • Thanks JFarrow for your extensive support of the Ning community. I am trying to learn how to find the code that needs to be changed. For example, someone posted the code to change the height of the header using .site-header. If I wanted to change that (and I hadn't found the forum post), how would I go about finding the code that needs to be edited? There is a lot of good code and help provided in the forum, but I need to know how to find and change these myself. Thank you so much. Dan.

    • Hi Dan,

      You can use the Chrome inspector or dev tools in the FireFox, to see the structure of the site and the classes used for each element of the site on the page you are looking at. Also, you may use the inspector to change some properties of the classes to see immediately the effect of your code, when you have reached the result you have been looking for you can add the code you have changed to the custom CSS section in the design studio to apply it on the live website. 

      Also, you may check the following article from our help center https://www.ning.com/ning3help/commonly-used-css-classes-and-html/, there you will see all commonly used classes.

      Hope this helps.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.
