Changing "carat" Color In Navbar

Recommended Posts



There is a caret in the navbar to indicate that you should click to see the dropdown menu. I am struggling to change its color in the CSS - but I can't figure out where the style is being set. Advice please?

Here's the path to the element...

html.mti-repaint > body.home.page.page-id-16.page-template-default.logged-in.admin-bar.custom.responsive.pagelines-template-theme.default.full_width.prettify-on.pagename-home.desktop.firefox.customize-support > div#site.fullwidth > div#page.thepage > div.page-canvas > header#header.container-group > div.outline > section#navbar.container.no_clone.section-navbar.fix > div.content > div.content-pad > div.navbar.fix.navbar-content-width.pl-color-trans > div.navbar-inner > div.navbar-content-pad.fix > div.nav-collapse.collapse > ul#menu-main.font-sub.navline.pldrop.pull-left > li#m1.page_item.page-item-31.dropdown > a.dropdown-toggle > b.caret

I just looked at contactpoint.pacific.edu and did not see any carets for the drop down menu items. Where are the ones you want to recolor?

Try this:

.navbar .navline .caret {

border-top-color: rgba(144, 0, 0, 1);


Specify the rgb color of your choice.

      Hi ,
      I just noticed that the color picker has stopped showing up on my PL5 site ( please see attached image ) 
      Any idea what could be causing the problem?

      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I know this is not an easy problem. Maybe there is a easy solution.
      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      In Platform 5, Using Framework Section for Content , I have set the hyperlink colors in the CUSTOMIZE section.   However, none of the pages are properly displaying the link colors.   Just defaulting to black, and underline on hover.   I did not see where this would be controlled at the page level or lower
