Child Theme for Grunge WordPress Theme?

If one of the main objectives of having a child theme in WordPress is to protect custom CSS tweaks and mods from being overwritten by updates to the theme, then that logic doesn’t apply for Gantry’s Grunge theme for WordPress. The Grunge theme was no longer being developed as of June 2011, which is only fitting, since 2011 WordPress Themes are much more suited to using child themes, since the series is actively being developed and constantly being updated.

So for now, we’ll save child-theme development for other WordPress themes that are in active development. Nice try, though!

Gantry FusionMenu Styling

I needed to style one individual item with its’ own CSS rules to distinguish it from the rest of the main menu items, so I figured out how to do it with this bit of code:

.item220 span {
    color:silver !important

How does it work? First, locate the single menu item that needs to be styled. In this case, it was .item220 as revealed by using the Firebug add-on for the Firefox browser. Then just add the CSS rule, in this case its the color style for the element.

Image: O – original, L – large, M – medium, S – small
{pgslideshow id=1|width=100|height=100|delay=3000|image=M}

And, as a reminder, we used this bit of code as a substitute for loadposition in content:

Where ‘realEstate’ is the name of a template or module position.

But now we’re moving to a couple of additional plugins:
