  • Hi,
    Please make sure your code is put between backtics; use the code-button at the beginning and end to do so.

    .navigation-main, .navigation-main ul, .navigation-main li {background:#99cc66;}

    If your theme has an option to customize the CSS like a ‘custom css’-TAB, place the above code there.
    Is such a feature missing from your theme? See the instructions below.
    Add the above code to the `style.css’ of your CHILDtheme:

    You don’t have a childtheme yet?

    1. Install and activate ‘one click childtheme plugin
    2. create the childtheme
    3. Dashboard > appearance > Themes > activate the childtheme
    4. Make the changes in the CHILDtheme!
    – copy php files / css-file(s) of the original theme [as required] to the childtheme directory and edit them as required.

    You can also use a Custom CSS plugin, such as the one that ships with Jetpack. Thanks for helping out Ginfo 🙂

    Thanks, this code seemed to work fine (changed nav bar color to dark blue) when pasted in the style.css of the theme Expound:

    .navigation-main {
    background: #0e123d !important;

    .navigation-main a {
    background: #0e123d !important;

    .navigation-main ul > .current_page_item a:after, .navigation-main ul > .current-menu-item a:after, .navigation-main ul > .current-post-ancestor a:after, .navigation-main ul > .current-menu-parent a:after, .navigation-main ul > .current-post-parent a:after {
    border-top: 6px solid #0e123d !important;

    thank you at last! This works…..after hours and hours of study and searching and reading. Why isn’t a basic colour control in the dashboard as with .com? This isn’t fair.
