Support » Theme: Sonar » Menu Customization in Sonar

  • Hello all, I am looking to customize the menu in the Sonar theme further than what is allowed in the options. I want to add a background image to the hover property, as well as rounded corners. I know I have to edit the stylesheet, but everything I’ve tried thus far has been unsuccessful. Here’s a link to my site. Here is what I currently have in my stylesheet regarding the menu:

    /* =Menu
    ————————————————————– */

    #access {
    /* fallback for web browsers that don’t support RGBa */
    background: rgb(0, 0, 0);
    /* RGBa with 0.35 opacity */
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.35);
    display: block;
    margin: 0 auto;
    float: left;
    width: 100%;
    #access .menu-header, {
    font-size: 13px;
    font-weight: bold;
    margin: 0 auto;
    width: 1000px;
    #access .menu-header ul, ul {
    list-style: none;
    margin: 0;
    #access .menu-header li, li {
    float: left;
    position: relative;
    #access a {
    color: #aaa;
    display: block;
    line-height: 38px;
    /* Fix up padding if NOT using SuperFish in sonar-custom-header.php */
    text-decoration: none;
    #access ul ul {
    box-shadow: 0px 3px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
    -moz-box-shadow: 0px 3px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 3px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
    display: none;
    position: absolute;
    top: 38px;
    left: 0;
    float: left;
    width: 180px;
    z-index: 99999;
    #access ul ul li {
    min-width: 180px;
    #access ul ul ul {
    left: 100%;
    top: 0;
    #access ul ul a {
    background: #444;
    line-height: 1em;
    padding: 10px;
    width: 160px;
    height: auto;
    #access li:hover > a,
    #access ul ul :hover > a {
    background: #333;
    color: #fff;
    #access ul li:hover > ul {
    display: block;
    #access ul li.current_page_item > a,
    #access ul li.current-menu-ancestor > a,
    #access ul li.current-menu-item > a,
    #access ul li.current-menu-parent > a {
    color: #53A4E6;
    * html #access ul li.current_page_item a,
    * html #access ul li.current-menu-ancestor a,
    * html #access ul li.current-menu-item a,
    * html #access ul li.current-menu-parent a,
    * html #access ul li a:hover {
    color: #fff;

    If anyone would be kind enough to tell me exactly what I need to edit in order to make this happen, it would be much appreciated! Thank you!

  • Don’t need to post your stylesheet–we can get that from the link. 🙂

    Try changing this line within your CSS file to something like:

    #access li:hover > a, #access ul ul *:hover > a {
       border-radius: 10px;
       color: #F2AE9B;

    What Sixhours posted should work for you but you should do all your CSS changes in Sonar Advanced options so that when you upgrade to a new version your style changes will not be erased.
