View Full Version : Clearing Previous CSS Stylesheet from a PORTION of a page (and then using new styles)

06-04-2010, 08:52 PM
I am trying to figure out how to nullify all of the previously set CSS styles in a portion of a page. Then, be able to set new styles to affect just that portion.

The situation is this:
Using a Wordpress theme, I have a single article that I want to be formatted completely differently than normal. However, there are css styles for things like <body>, <td>, <blockquote> etc (lots of them) that I already set in the theme itself. I don't want these theme-defined styles to affect the article portion, for this article only, and only for the article portion of the page.

Is this possible, other than by re-declaring all the css values that are set in the theme?

wrap the article in a <div id="someArticle"></div>

#someArticle p { color:red; }
#someArticle h1 { color:green; }


restyle as needed, the changes will only apply to content contained within that DIV. presumabyl you can customise the output of articles in WP, i'm not that savvy with it.
