Hi,

I have read conflicting opinions about how to add custom made css to bootstrap.
What I do is include my custom  stylesheet last. Then if I want a custom anything eg say a menu then I add new classes/id's and work with them in a new row.

Is this the correct method and I would add my css code in a custom stylesheet?

<div class="row-fluid">
    
     <div class='span12 main'>
      <h2>Main menu Section sd fs df sdf sd f sfsdfsdfsdfdsfsd dfvdf fdfg dfg dfg dfg df</h2>
     </div>

Your code does not show your own custom stylesheet, but yes, create your own custom stylesheet and place it below the bootstrap. I do this and it works fine. It is better this way as bootstrap may change and it keeps everything in one spot.   If you have a large site with a lot of traffic, it may be good to place your custom css on the same sheet below the bootstrap css.  The reason is there is one less call to the server.  You should also compress the css.  While you are in the construction phase, it is easier to keep it separate and not compressed.

Or you can add !important to your styles... like this..

Example...

#ID{
       width: 200px !important;
       height: 200px !important;
}
