    I’m looking for the CSS codes to change the colors from the teal blue to another color. I want to change the social media buttons, the menu bar, and the drop down menu color.

    Thank you,

    Stacy

  • Hi there,

    You can change the menu bar color with these snippets (currently black, but change to your preference):

    .main-navigation {
    background-color: #1c1a19;
    }

    To change the drop down menu color:

    .main-navigation ul ul {
       background-color: #1c1a19;
    }

    TO change the social media icons:

    .jetpack-social-navigation ul li {
    	background: #1c1a19;

    Hope this helps!

    The last one (social media icon color change) isn’t working. Can you verify this please? Here’s what I’m getting: When using a keyboard to navigate:

    In the editing area, the Tab key enters a tab character.
    To move away from this area, press the Esc key followed by the Tab key.
    Screen reader users: when in forms mode, you may need to press the escape key twice.
    The edit field automatically highlights code syntax. You can disable this in your user profile (opens in a new tab) to work in plain text mode.

    When I try to just update anyway, I get this: There are 2 errors which must be fixed before you can save.
    Update anyway, even though it might break your site?

    Also … is there a way to find out where ALL the CSS codes live? Like changing the color of the text, or other things?

    Hi @optingoutofnormal,

    The last one (social media icon color change) isn’t working.

    The CSS @darnelldibbles provided works on my end but a closing bracket is missing from the example above. This could prevent the CSS from working correctly so please try copying and pasting the following code:

    .jetpack-social-navigation ul li {
    	background: #1c1a19;
    }

    Does that make a difference?

    There are 2 errors which must be fixed before you can save.

    What are the two errors you are seeing?

    Also … is there a way to find out where ALL the CSS codes live? Like changing the color of the text, or other things?

    All theme CSS is listed in the style.css file — any additional CSS added by you is also compiled there.

    You can find a list of all CSS in that file but I don’t recommend editing it directly. It’s better to add your changes from Appearance > Customise > Additional CSS (to ensure they don’t get overwritten during future updates etc).

    Thank you so much! That closing bracket did the trick. I appreciate your help. I now have no errors, and everything worked. Thank you again!

    Perfect! And sorry for that missing bracket! 😉
