Style Override Technique

p { 
   font-size: 24px !important; 
}

The !important rule at the end of a value will override any other style declarations of that attribute, including inline styles.

    Chris, it’s not evil but sometimes neccessary. Imagine you use something like Joomla and need to chnage CSS styles of a module. If they update the module all is gone. But if you extract the styles you want to edit and “import” them, you can attach your onw CSS with the changes and most times you will have no trouble updating :)

  4. how to overrid the color of sticky color style:
    For Example:
    .sticky{
    color:#000;
    }
    .nav{
    color:#fff;
    }
    I get #fff as color even when sticky class is added in sticky navigation.
    Please Help!!

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like ```this```. You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you.

Sadly, it's kind of broken. WordPress only accepts a subset of HTML in comments, which makes sense, because certainly some HTML can't be allowed, like <script> tags. But this stripping happens before the comment is processed by Markdown (via Jetpack). It seems to me that would be reversed, because after Markdown processes code in backticks, it's escaped, thus safe. If you think you can fix this issue, get in touch!

If you need to make sure the code (typically HTML) you post absolutely posts correctly, escape it and put it within <pre><code> tags.
