    I would like to be able to change the menu colors in the Elbee Elgee child theme. I an not up to date on CSS. Although I have tinkered some over the years.
    The problem is this:
    I am using Buddypress and the Buddypress menu has a black background and blue foreground when un-selected. Makes very hard to read.
    Here is my test site: http://pinemountaincarvers.org/testwp/

    That's a very important point.
    To resolve this, you could add this to the bottom of your Child Theme's style.css file;

    #menu-elbee-child-buddypress-menu a:link,
    #menu-elbee-child-buddypress-menu a:visited {
     color: white;
    #menu-elbee-child-buddypress-menu a:hover {
     background: black;

    Play about with those colours to suit you.

    Andrew, that was FAST and accurate!
    I just copied your example and pasted in the bottom of the child style CSS and it changed the blue foreground to white which is acceptable.

    I may do as you suggest and play around with the colors to see which is most pleasing to the eye. Black seem a little harsh.

    Thank you very much, I spent several hours searching for an example of this.
