Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Enqueuing a new style sheet for the front page, part of WordPress: Building a One-Page Style Site.
…With the overall markup structure of our content in place,…the next step is to add styles to the content so…it appears the way we want because right now it looks pretty strange.…We have all the content jammed to the left-hand side of the screen and…it doesn't appear in any way appealing or easy to read.…What I want to do is add a colored background that's bounced the entire width…of the screen for each of our sections, so that they're clearly separated.…And then, I want to display the content in the middle of the screen, so…it always floats to the center.…
This all creates a really nice visual appearance that's also…quite different from the rest of the site.…All of this will be done using CSS and…the logical conclusion is, we should be putting all our new…styles in the style.CSS file within the lander child themed folder.…However, we don't want to do that because the styles that…we're creating are only going to be applied to the front page and…nowhere else so we don't want to clutter up our style sheet with all…
