Support » Theme: Montezuma » My menu font has become light and large… Or, has it???

    My computer isn’t showing me my site accurately. Although my CSS files for Content and Layout each show the background color as #FdFaE3, my computer shows my site looking messy with two different colors. I’ve clearly my caches… waited for the web caches to clear, and still…

    So, I don’t know if my menu is weird for me, or for everyone visiting my site…

    For me, the menu items have become a large font size and a lighter color. I think they are much harder to read, and my visitors seem to be falling off in number. Though, since most of my visitors are first time visitors, I don’t know that the look is keeping them from visiting.

    I can’t work out how to correct the font color and size in the menu, given that I apparently can’t get changes to appear on my computer…

    My CSS for menu says the color is black, but it looks like a dark gray to me… I’m so confused…

    What do you think?

  • The rule for the menu item background looks like this:

    #menu1 > li {
       background: 	transparent url( 0 center no-repeat; 
       box-shadow: 	2px 4px 20px -18px #000;

    It looks like you are using an image as the menu background, and not a color. The only rule that I see that uses #FdFaE3 for the background color is the body element. That color is a very light color, though, almost white, so it’s not going to stand out very much.

    The font color is black, but the font-weight is 300, so the characters are drawn very thin, so it looks gray. If you change the font-weight to 400, and maybe reduce the font-size so the menu items fit, it will be apparent that the color is black.

    That’s exciting!!!

    Thank you, CrouchingBruin …

    I’ll go try it now.

    I just wish I could see the changes I make. I’ve waited days for the background color to change… Yes. It’s a very light color of yellow. On my computer the top of my site is two different very light colors of yellow. Is it that way for you?

    I checked my site in FireFox and IE and there aren’t any changes… I’ve gone back to the brighter yellow for the background, but… the changes do not want to appear.

    What can I do?

    What CSS did you add to try to make the background a brighter yellow?

    Oops, I replied in the wrong thread…

    Under CSS, Content I used

    body {
    background-color: #FFFFB3;
    And Under CSS, Layout I used

    #banner {
    position: “width=device-width”;
    background-color: #FFFFB3;
    I wonder if I can copy and paste… We’ll see…

    No, I’ll do it again

    Under CSS Content, I used:

    body {
      	background-color:	#FFFFB3;

    Under CSS Layout, I used:

    /* The header area */
    #banner {
      	position: 				"width=device-width";
      	background-color:		#FFFFB3;	

    I don’t see anything with that color in your Montezuma CSS file. Can you try something a little different? With the latest version of WordPress (release 4.7.2), an option was added that allows you to add your own CSS. Try going to Appearance → Customize → Additional CSS and copy & pasting your rules in there.

    Wow, for whatever reason my Menu has suddenly begun to display the changes I made weeks ago based on your suggestions…

    Wow, my basic font seems to have changed, also…

    Are you noticing this on your sites?

    No, my changes are usually immediate. If they are not, I usually just have to clear my browser cache.

    I think I wasn’t clear. Have you noticed a recent change in the content font???

    Do you follow Twitter? If so, you’ll “understand” that the problem I’m having may be… CIA. (lol)
