Main nav transparent background

Recommended Posts

I want the background right behind the main nav to be transparent (not white like it is now)

Add this to your custom CSS: .sf-menu li { background-color: transparent; }

mstmarie1's solution may well work perfectly. If it doesn't, try this. [code].sf-menu li, #primary-nav ul.sf-menu a:focus, .sf-menu a:hover, .sf-menu a:active {background:transparent!important;}[/code]

Thanks! Also, on the drop down menu tabs (cities and editors) there is an arrow indicating that is a drop down. Can I remove this so that they are the same sized blocks as the other parts of the menu?

It can also be done with CSS, but, if I may point out, your visitors won't quite know what they're doing with your navigation. You can, of course, use CSS to set the specific width of each menu item. In your header, btw, you could actually adjust the amount of space taken by the branding, to widen the menu by at least 150px. Please don't take this as a criticism, but a styling tip as it's intended. Italic fonts on a diagonal stripped background are incredibly difficult to read. Just looking at your About page and couldn't read all the way through. That font is also very tightly spaced. Perhaps a different font or widening the space between characters would help. Just food for thought.
