    Hi glamj,

    It would be helpful to know which theme you are using. Some themes have options panels to configure menu colors, but that is rare.

    I'm assuming you're referring to the background color of the menu buttons/bar, and not the text itself. Either way, I would suggest installing FireBug (http://getfirebug.com/) as a browser plugin, or use the built in inspector in Chrome. These tools will allow you to "inspect" elements on the page to identify styles that you need to target.

    You'll want to create a child theme to inherit the theme's base styles and then customize on top to your needs. This will allow your css changes to stay in place after any theme updates. The parent theme will remain unmodified.

    You can read more about child themes here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    You'll want to avoid installing a plugin to accomplish this - your time is better spent learning how to do this manually as it will help you build a foundation for solving future WordPress issues.

    Please let me know if you need me to explain any terms or statements made above in more detail.

    Best,
    WPBO
