I would like to have the font for the sidebar navigation bold. I tried to achieve this in the Typography section of the Platform Pro Settings (secondary), but my entries there do not seem to have any effect. I woul also like the navigation at higher position and that the active page is highlighted. How can I bring this about? As always I very much appreciate and thank fo your help, Steph

Steph, When you said you tried Typography, what did you do and how did you try to affect change?

I set the Secondary Font on Arial and bold, but the navigation font does not change.

Thanks, Danny. It was not cear to me whether to enter this in Typography or in Custom Code. I tried both. To no avail. The font is still not bold.

Dear all, I repeat what I need to achieve on the site

Please Login or Register to see this Hidden Content

a) The navigation in the left sidebar should be placed higher B) the font of this navigation should be bold c) The active page should be highlighted in the navigation. My customer (and consequently I) is getting a bit nervous. If the remedy of these things can only be done by your paid service, please let me know asap what it will cost. regards Steph

Hi Stefan,

Sorry about my previous answer, I thought for some reason not quite sure why, you were talking about a secondary navigation. Nevermind the following code should be added to custom code.

1. Places the nav higher up, if you want it higher let us know.

2. The font should appear bold now.

3. The active menu item's background should appear black, if you want another color change the color hex code.

a) If you didn't want the background to be another color but the text to change when its the current page, us this code:
