Help with Theme Twenty-ten

  • I would like to change the color for the page bar (located directly under the header image) from black to blue. Where do I find the code to change?

    Don’t edit the Twenty Ten theme. Your changes will be over-written the next time you upgrade WordPress. For this reason, it is recommended that you consider creating a child theme for your customisations. Once your child theme is active, we should be able to help with the customisation.

    Okay, I’ve made the child theme directory and activated it.
    I’ve successfully changed the title color. Now I’m looking for the code
    to change the menu bar color and add a jpg image of stars.

    To change the nav bar color, try adding:

    #access {
        color: #000

    to your child’s stylesheet – substituting the color codes with your own as appropriate.

    Not sure what you want to do with the jpg image.

    Thanks. Can I change the hover color?

    I want to add the stars either at the end of the menu bar or at the end of the title. It’s a logo thing.

    #access li:hover > a, #access ul ul *:hover > a {
        color: #fff;

    adding images to either end of the menu bar isn’t going to be possible unless you modify the menu bar markup in a copy of header.php. You might be able to add it to the end of the site title using something like:

    #site-title {
    background-position:top right;

    assumuing that:

    1. You upload the image as stars.jpg to your child theme’s images folder
    2. The image is less than 40 px high.

    thanks so much.



    Thought maybe you would like to see a couple of my child themes to get some ideas.
