I am trying to apply css styling to a footer element in a theme; nothing works.

See attached. The image widgets.jpg shows what I am trying to do in the 2nd footer column. Note the style class="lbbold".

See attached css.jpg; this is the css.

See attached footer2.jpg; this is what Wordpress shows when you view site; nothe te ENTIRES text is gone.

Note also (not shown) that if I use the old <b>...</b> tags or even <strong>...</strong>, these have no effect.

What's wrong?

Hey RKorts! Can you give us a link to the page? Taking part of a page out of context can make it do very different things.

The desired effect is to have the text (which is currently invisible) AMC Industries show in bold & font color as in the CSS.

Thanks

Where is this invisible text? Underneath the CMS heading?

Can you try changing this:
<style class="lbbold">AMC Industries</style>
to:
<span class="lbbold">AMC Industries</span>
A style tag is invisible in html.

That's it!!

Stupid of me. I learned two things, the CSS mechanism as it appeared to be designed for worked. So, hopefully, I can use that anywhere.

Thanks
