So I've been trying to add custom css to our Secondary Navigation to make one of the two buttons outlined. This works fine in the editor but once I load the live site the CSS is not applied. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

#yui_3_17_2_1_1580978748119_1195 > div > a:nth-child(1)  {

YUI IDs like the one in your screenshot are dynamically generated on page load. You shouldn't use these in your code because they will change next time the page is refreshed or edited. I published a guide that explains this here: In Squarespace, what are the differences between #block-yui and #yui selectors?
