    #colophon #access-footer a {

    	line-height: 3em;
    	padding: 0 1.2125em;
    	text-decoration: none;


    color: #eee;

    Hi Raby and Nathlie,

    I don’t recommend you to make change on the core theme file like style.css . All these changes will be overwritten once you upgrade your theme.

    There is two alternative to this:

    1. Either you can add the CSS code in “Custom CSS Styles” box which you will see it in the Theme Option Page under Appearance Menu
    2. Or you can create the child theme and update there (


    That’s right. I assumed that it is just a one time update that’s why I gave the direct answer. Thanks for the heads up!


    thanks for your responses, raby and sakin! hmm, thats the line i changed before i decided to ask for help here. it didn’t work for me the first time, but i will try again 🙂

    I’d like to change the background colour of the horizontal menu bar. I followed the steps described above but I can’t get it to work. I’m using Firebug on Firefox and I can alter the colour if I change the gradient values around line 490 of style.css:

    #branding #access,
    #colophon #access-footer {
    background: #222; /* Show a solid color for older browsers */
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(#585858, #3d3d3d);
    background: -o-linear-gradient(#585858, #3d3d3d);
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0% 0%, 0% 100%, from(#585858), to(#3d3d3d)); /* older webkit syntax */
    background: -webkit-linear-gradient(#585858, #3d3d3d);
    clear: both;
    display: block;
    float: left;
    margin: 0 auto 2px;
    width: 100%;

    …but it doesn’t change if I manually edit the style.css file. What am I missing?

    Sorry if I’m being thick – I’m quite new to this child theme malarkey 🙂


    Did anyone figured it out?

    I switched to the Simple Catch theme! Hope someone can solve it for you

    I’m having the same problem. I tried changing the menu color by following the above advice with no luck. Would love some guidance…
