Perhaps I've been staring at this for way too long, but need some direction.
I am "fixing" a theme that was edited withOUT using the HTML/CSS inserts. I've got nearly all of it squared except the pesky background of the menu.
When I view it through firebug, I can't seem to locate where the previous person made that change. the menu div literally comes up empty. but if I go into "css mode", I can see the background image file being called up. I have added that to html/css inserts and swapped over to the new theme, but nothing changes. (i don't suppose it's as silly as needing that "!important" in there??)

This is the code I find in there (and that I added to html/css inserts):
Code:
ul.rMenu ul {
    background: url("/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-bg.png") repeat scroll center top transparent;
}
here's the site (a page w/out any sliders/don't use the home page): http://www.gordisfishandsteak.com/about/

I tweak the menu features inside of ATA and nothing changes (meaning, I can't even "break" it on purpose)....

The site looks fine to me. What is it you want to change?

sorry... i need to clarify.
i have the updated ata theme "ready", but when I switch over to it, the background of the menu is just black.

what i'm trying to figure out, is where the previous person added the css to make the background that wood pattern.

the site is live, so i just flip it over, see if I can find the damn thing and then switch it back... still to no avail.

make sense?

I am still not clear on what you are trying to do. Can you reword what you want once again?

ok... .and i'm sorry for taking up your time with this... it's kinda silly, but i can't crack it.

the site you see "live" now is fine and dandy. but the guy that built it made his changes (somewhere) in the hard-coded css, instead of "html/css inserts".

so, when I update the theme to the latest version, the menu (where the skis are) goes black (the background of menu1). The rest of the changes, I have been able to find and add to the html/css inserts so when I update, the site looks fine.

He (somewhere) added a background image to that menu and I can't figure out where.

Juggledad... I think you're referring to the full background?? I just need that pesky menu background.

if he made changes in the actual css file (css.php or style.css) just do a file compare (grep) of the two files from teh previous version to the new version, to see what changed. On the mac you can do it with TextWrangler (free) and I'm sure there must be a free tool in windows - but I have no idea what it might be

no worries, Juggledad. I'll keep poking around. It's the silly menu, so it can't be that hard to find. I might just make the update and go add the css/html inserts myself.

I found "diffmerge" for the mac.... it's very handy and highlights the changes. I've been using that for all 4 of these upgrades (yes, he did 4 sites without using the inserts!) "job security!"

Thanks again for all the help.

If you haven got it, take a look at TextWrangler for the mac. I use it all the time. You can compare two folders to find all the differences.
