    I can not figure out how to change the css in the child theme for the padding in one spot on my site.

    The problem area is the white 32px padding under the featured story.
    I want the padding to be black like the backround. I have tried using the inspect element to no avail. I know it is a simple problem, but I cannot figure it out.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you


    You seem to have a background image overriding the black background.

    #featured {
        background: url(library/images/prev.png) repeat-x left bottom #fff;
        height: 432px;
        padding-bottom: 32px;

    Try disabling that background image.


    I did that and it throws an error ..file not found. Although the page looks correct when I do this, the error seems to effect the loading of the page and google does not like that.

    I am going to attempt to change the image to a solid black square and see if that solves it.

    Thank you for your reply.


    I found the prev.png and changed the name. Didn’t work. I replaced the .png with asolid black square. Same thing, still a white bar. It is drivng me crazy.


    #featured has a white background color along with the prev.png background image.
