    How would I change the background menu color. I want it too look the same as the current colors (background and foreground). I tried several css edits but none seem to work.
    The site in question is here watsonlawlc.com

  • Hey goodsuccess,

    Try adding this custom CSS. If the theme doesn’t have its own custom css tab the easiest way would be to add it using this plugin:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css

    Once the plugin is installed and activated you can add this code to Appearance >> Custom CSS:

    .section-container.horizontal-nav, container.horizontal-nav section .title {
    background: #dad2ad;
    }

    Please let me know if this works.

    Best regards,

    Hi there,

    also if you want to edit the background and hover color of your menu items to mach your color pallet, add this code:

    .section-container section .title {
      background-color: #dad2ad;
    }
    
    .section-container section .title:hover {
      background-color: #cec392;
    }

    Outstanding. Both examples worked great. Now how do I change the color on the right side bar widget? Or would this require a new thread?

    Hey @goodsuccess,

    No worries, we can assist here. 🙂

    You can use CSS like so for the sidebar widgets:

    aside .widget {
      background-color: #00f;
      color: #fff;
    }

    And for the widget titles:

    aside .widget .widget-title {
      color: #fff;
    }

    How’s that work for ya? 🙂

    Cheers,
    David

    It works great David. One last thing (I hope). There is a white bar atop the screen. It is where the site title and tagline are suppose to be. How do I remove that without removing the space and keeping the same color scheme with what I have now?

    Or changing the color scheme on top bar.

    Hi @goodsuccess,

    You can change the color of white bar displayed at top of the screen with the same color scheme used in your site as background by using the following CSS code by adding it .

    #header hr {
       border-color: #dad2ad;
    }
    header#header {
       background-color: #dad2ad;
    }

    The support here is above what I see anywhere else.

    Anyway…still got a few problems.
    How do I change the text links on the side bar below Areas of Practice. And there are small thin blue lines around the menu bar. How do I change the thickness and color?

    Thanks for everyone’s time.
    Paul

    Hey good success, try the following 🙂

    .section-container.horizontal-nav {
        border: 4px solid #ccc;
    }

    Adjust to your own color and border width liking.

    And this

    a:hover, a:focus {
        color: #E1C027;
    }
    
    a {
        color: #DAD2AD;
    }

    Cheers!

    Hey WPMU DEV Support Staff,

    I found this thread looking to change menu bar background color on my client’s site: http://www.nevadastaffingexpress.com So I followed tour lead and downloaded Simple Custom CSS plugin, added all this code

    .section-container.horizontal-nav, container.horizontal-nav section .title {
    background: #ffffff;
    }
    .section-container section .title {
    background-color: #ffffff;
    }

    .section-container section .title:hover {
    background-color: #ffffff;
    }

    It didn’t change anything – can you help?

    Hey there terierni,

    Generally you’d want to open a new thread since it appear that you’re not using the same theme and this thread is pretty old as well.

    With that being said please try adding the following instead:

    nav#site-navigation {
    background-color: #fff;
    }

    This should make your navigation background color white. If you want another color simply replace color hex value, you can use sites similar to this one to get hex value for the color of your choice: http://www.color-hex.com/

    Hope this helps 🙂

    Best regards,
    Bojan

    Please, I am using the free version of spacious theme and I wish to change my menu background to a bluish colour with a white hover colour. Can I get a code for that and where in the Style.css do I add the code?

    Hey there balmofgileadade,

    As I mentioned above you’d really want to open a new thread as this one is pretty old and you’re using a different theme.

    Since you already posted here you can provide link to your site and I’ll take a look.

    Best regards,
    Bojan

    For people posting their issues on this, please read what the OP said:

    Outstanding. Both examples worked great.

    Then read the examples that the OP is referring to.

    If that doesn’t work for you then you need to create your own thread to discuss your own issue, regardless of how strong you feel that your issue is the same.
