Hi, I've been using pagelines customize plugin to edit the css for my site. On the following page:

i can't get any of the custom css to stick. I use firebug to dissect the elements and test out what css I would like to use. When i then try and implement those changes into my pagelines customize plugin, there is no effect whatsoever (does not apply or even appear on with firebug).

Is there a way to specify the css of content inside this iframe?

What CSS are you using? The CSS may need to be more specific.

thanks for the info, but that is incomprehensible to me. I really do not understand javascript and how to modify the code to work with my site. I understand what the function of javascript, but to me its like trying to learn algebra from a hungarian text book.

Hi Conrad,

The iframe is the feed of another site into yours, so it pulls the CSS for the iframe from the source site prior to displaying on the page. Unfortunately you won't be able to adjust it using normal css rules, if you really want to edit it I'd suggest hiring a pro to implement the javascript option.
