Hello to everyone from Scotland!
I'm a bit of a newbie with web design so some help would be great.

Been referencing this forum and the pagelines docs whilst building a site for a marketing services company I'm trying to launch.

I am very happy with how I have progressed with the development of the site. One change I'd like to add though is a coloured background to the main navigation bar to a blue of similar colour to my logo.

www.speir.co.uk

I'd then like the text in the bar to be white I think.

Any help with this would be great as it's one of the last things I'd like to add at moment. I've read other similar posts and pasted code into custom CSS but nothing seems to work.

Batman is one of the best newbies! Great info he's giving you. One other option is to install the Simple CSS Lite plugin found in the Store (free).

I second this (or should I say "third this"? Does that make sense) the Simple CSS Lite plugin.

THANKS! Worked a treat! Website now looking a good bit better. Very pleased with progress as this was something hugely important that I'd tried lots of code. The plug in is great!
