Hi! I just started building my second site and confronted a problem right away... I've uploaded "the simple css lite" plugin and i've been controlling the navigation color with it. Is it possible to have different color text for the main navigation and the branding section navigation? Maybe with custom code? I've tried to insert few codes to the custom code section but I can't seem to get the colors right. Thanks!

Do you have Firebug? If not, please install it to your Firefox browser through

It's an amazing tool that will help you identify specific CSS elements, letting you test them live, then copying the positive results to your Custom Code > CSS Rules or Style.css (pagelines-customize plugin). To answer your question, yes, you can have a different font color for hover, in each and you may even have a different color for specific menu items in hover, active or other states. I'd suggest you look at

I have firebug and i still couldn't find the right command. I have used it successfully before. I couldn't change the brand navigation color even the firebug live preview. Can someone look at my page and give me some advice. Would be appreciated! Thank you!

Glad you have Firebug. It should help. How you're applying CSS is unclear. However, the question you asked was

"Is it possible to have different color text for the main navigation and the branding section navigation? Maybe with custom code?"

and I did answer that after looking at your site.

For each element in your menu, you'll find something like: menu-item-62 and you apply the CSS to the specific items. That's why you need to use Firebug - not just to find the elements but to combine them for custom CSS solutions. Unfortunately, I cannot write the CSS for you for each menu item.
