No problem, man. Just remember that the key to understanding it all lies in the languages themselves… not the actual theme controls. So if you have to continuously reference HTML and CSS, that will definitely help you get the hang of how to use the boxes and packages.
“If we know what HTML is responsible for, and we know what CSS is responsible for, is Thesis 2 really that hard to use? … As promised many times by Chris and the DIY Themes team, you do not have to be a web geek to understand how to use Thesis 2.”
If the last portion makes absolutely no sense to you, or you are unfamiliar with how CSS selectors work, it may be time to hit and learn the basics of HTML and CSS.
The “Reference” field you filled out represents the link between your Package and your Box. Without placing the reference in the Skin CSS panel, regardless of your CSS Selector, the CSS will not work.
As promised many times by Chris and the DIY Themes team, you do not have to be a web geek to understand how to use Thesis 2. You don’t have to know HTML, CSS, PHP or anything else to know how to use Thesis 2.
I’ve got REALLY good at customizing (in a sense) WordPress themes. I bought Thesis last year and wasn’t too impressed. So when I heard about 2.0, I thought let me give this thing another try. I even watched some tutorial videos and got bored out of my mind. I guess my problem is I’ve never coded from scratch, but I understand HTML and CSS. I really want to take my developing to the next level, I have all this creative stuff in my head that I want to be able to skillfully create. Thanks for the post, it’s given me some motivation to figure this thing out. People pay me to design their WordPress themes all the time, maybe I can make a whole lot more money if I really knew what I was doing….lol This darn learning curve…UUUGGGHH!!

How To Edit A Css Template. Thank You for visiting PRONOFOOT35FO. Nowadays were excited to declare that we have discovered an incredibly interesting topic to be pointed out, namely How To Edit A Css Template. Lots of people attempting to find info about master bedroom design ideas and certainly one of them is you, is not it?
By the way i am a newbie and completely noob in technical area. But i find that spending $57 is much more profitable in every single way than spending $200 on Thesis.
If it’s any help to other non-coders, here is where we’ve gone as a result of the abysmal T-V2 fail. We are now developing again–with Genesis Framework, and the Dynamik for Genesis child theme. You might want to check out Eric Hamm’s Dynamik–it appears to offer all the tweaks and customization possibilities (for non-coder/non-CSS folks like us) that Thesis 2 promised. It has been supported, updated and maintained for over a year(?) now. With no hype–just personable, consistent support and professional videos, etc.
Even ‘with’ documentation, Chris’ claim is vastly overstating the reality. Every single bit of the UI is dominated with HTML and CSS language. I’m sure I could spend a day reading up on what classes, selectors and variables are and how they relate to each other, but the whole point of 2.0 was supposed to be that I didn’t need to.
The classes that are already used can be seen in your boxes (HTML) and Packages (CSS). You could even view your page source and search for a class name if you’re unsure if a particular name has been used or not.
There doesn’t seem to be much discussion about developers having to use the new package interface to write css. I don’t know about you, but there’s no way I’m going to feel comfortable writing my css by inputting values into text fields and selecting from options in a drop down. Using a text editor to hand write css is how many developers do it.
Very well written, Sean.
As a website non-developer person who has been trying to learn Thesis, CSS and HTML in my spare time, I think Thesis 2.0 is great. It makes the trial and error process less scary. Before, I would see a site feature I liked and then go try to figure out how to get it with a widget or using some code I did not really understand. Although Thesis 1.0 had lots of reference info about using hooks, etc. it was/is still confusing to me. I know nothing about PHP. And I’m always afraid I’ll make some error that blows up my site and not know how to fix it. With 2.0 I feel I can at least look at the classic theme template boxes and packages and learn from what’s there.
