Changing colors and stuff in main navigation

Recommended Posts

indigo

When I bought Framework I thought I was going to get a really easy to tweak theme. Now I'm spending hours to basic stuff configured since I don't know any code. I also use WooThemes Canvas and I find it much easier to use. Is there something I'm missing here? Please help. I just want to change the colors used in the main navigation without going nuts.

my site's at: http://rainbowseminars.com/ "Primary Links" does not change the main menu item links. I need to change font, color, size and color of hovor bg, etc. I've looked in style.css and can't really find the code. If I knew where to mess around I can change the parameters myself. I'm just clueless if I have to actually write new code. Finding the code sometimes is a challenge in itself. I've already found some code here to put the nav inline with the logo, that worked great. Is it correct that I don't need a child theme if using Framework 2.0? I tried using the child theme "PlatformBase" that came bundled with it, but it doesn't work so I'm using the Pagelines Framework 2.0.1 directly and adding mods to the Custom Css page. here's a mock of what I'd like to achieve: http://rainbowseminars.com/img/nav-demo.jpg Thanks, you guys are great! (and Happy New Year 2012 to all).

Instead of looking in the style.css file itself and changing the parameters, new code can be created and put in Custom Code > Custom CSS to overwrite what's in style.css. The easiest way to do this is with Firebug, a free Firefox add-on that allows you to inspect elements on a page and determine the selectors needed to help you create the CSS you want. Firebug is available here: http://getfirebug.com/ A tutorial on how to use it for CSS customizations is here: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/index.php?title=CSS_Customization#How_to_use_CSS_Inspection_Tools (The example goes over how to change an element's padding, but it's the same principle)

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

I haven't been able to change the hover background color, or the current page bg. I admit I'm no expert with Firebug, but I've tried hard to use it properly. Still can't get mods to stick when refreshing site. Some values are also just not showing up.

I'm working on a PageLines plugin for this but I need some developer help. As soon as I'm able to get help for the finishing touches, the plugin will be in the store. :)
