I am having a difficult time trying to modify the h2 on "interior" pages of my site and not have it impact the home page.

I am trying to make the "Financing Your Purchase" h2 tag to be smaller but when I modify it, that also modifies the Home page's "Simply Sophisticated " which appears below animation.  

I use this for the Financing Your Purchase  

.main-holder h2 {
    text-transform: capitalize;
    font-family: muli;
}

Open in new window


and this for the home page
h2.title-box_primary, .banner-wrap p  { /*h2 below slider*/
font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 60px;
    font-size: 47px;
    color: #5f5f5f;
text-align:left;
  text-transform: capitalize;}

but when i modify one, it impacts both.  help!

Are you sure about this and it's not a caching issue?

When you see a selector like .class htmlelement, that CSS will apply to all elements found as a descendant of the class.  In this case, .main-holder is present very high up on the page, so all h2's can be affected by it and changing that entry should affect both pages.

But htmlelement.class should only affect elements of that class.  Since h2.title-box_primary only appears on the front page any change to that CSS should be limited to the front page.

Yes, that is what I thought. That it shouldn't impact each other.  I even viewed on private window to avoid cache issue and it still is a problem.  I changed font to red (not the color i want but it helps to pinpoint problems) and yes, the red is on h2's on interior pages AND on home page's 1) animation 2) simply sophisticated 3) h2's in 4 boxes below animation!

.main-holder h2 {
    text-transform: capitalize;
    font-family: muli;
  color:#bd3100;
 
}

But see above where I said changing .main-holder h2 WILL affect all pages because .main-holder appears to be applied to all pages.

To affect just interior pages, you need to scope the CSS so it only affects elements on those pages.  This can be a little tricky to do because there doesn't seem to be a lot of uniqueness in the current CSS selectors.

Your best bet may be to add something like:

.page-template-page-fullwidth h2 {
    color:#bd3100;
}

to your CSS file.  That class appears in the body tag on the interior page but not on the home page.
