  • HI! I have the same problem! Any help?


    If you want to change the characters colour, past this CSS on Custom CSS plugin :

    .main-navigation a {
    color: #FFFFFF;
    padding: 25px 15px;

    Modify Hexa code #FFFFFF (white in my case) by like you want :

    Hi that was helpful also!! but i meant the navigation menu. The color is dark brown! how can i change that?

    May I see the url to your site to help you in a more detailed way?

    Hi elenikap,

    No problem use this in custom CSS :

    .main-navigation {
    display: inline-block;
    background: #100d0a;
    border: solid 3px #211e1b;
    clear: both;
    margin: auto;
    margin-bottom: 20px;
    height: auto;
    text-align: left;

    Modify hexa code “background” for dark brown color and do not forget “border” color hexa code for border menu ;).

    and this code :

    .main-navigation li:hover > a {
    color: #7a5a24;
    background: #100d0a;

    To modify color when your mouse is over the button (rollover)

    Oh my God, that was so helpful! thank you so much!! just one last question 😮 . when i scroll down in the navigation menu, the background is still dark. do you know how to change this as well?
    Thanks once more!!!!

    .main-navigation ul ul a:hover {
    background: #615642;
    color: #100d0a;

    “color” is for text when your mouse is on yours subcategories

    This worked just fine!!! Thanks so much!!!!!!


    Hi. Love this theme. I’ve managed to change the color of the text in menues, but the mouseover color is still a dark brown. Also, the title for a text block it dark brow on black. Please tell me how I can change this. Thanks!
