I have a website that I would like to re-skin for a short while as a form of advertising. I however cannot see where in the editor-style.css I would do this - this the top of my code :


Theme Name: Starkers



Used to style the TinyMCE editor.

html .mceContentBody {

* {
    font-family: Georgia, "Bitstream Charter", serif;
    color: #444; 
    line-height: 1.5;

blockquote {
    font-size: 16px;

tr th,

thead th,


tr th,

thead th {

    font-family: "Helvetica Neue", Arial, Helvetica, "Nimbus Sans L", sans-serif;

pre {

    font-family: "Courier 10 Pitch", Courier, monospace;


code, code var {
    font-family: Monaco, Consolas, "Andale Mono", "DejaVu Sans Mono", monospace;

body, input, textarea {

    font-size: 12px;

    line-height: 18px;

hr {
    background-color: #E7E7E7; 


    height: 1px;

    margin-bottom: 18px;



Am I even looking in the right place? I am sure there is a really easy, simple way of doing this as it is a popular option.

editor-style.css is used to style TinyMCE, the rich-text-editor employed by WordPress.

Look for a plain style.css file in your theme - if it has been written with Starkers as a base, it ought to have one.

I don't mean to be impolite, but if you could not figure out that you were looking at the wrong file, you might want to make sure you have a backup of the stylesheet before editing it.

  • HI yes, I did find the style.css after, initially I couldn't see it anywhere. And yep, not that experienced in this so trying to pick my way through, no offence taken and will be keeping a back up! the top of the style.css is belo :
