Changing Text Color in Main Navigation Bar

Recommended Posts


I can't seem to find where I would go to change the color of my main navigation text.  I have an option to choose a background color in the regular edit menu of the navigation bar, however there is no option there for changing text color.  


I have found a couple confusing code examples in the forum, but I can't figure out where they are editing this code.  Using the examples I found in the forum, and putting them into the custom less/css field, I had zero change in my menu bar.  


My question is:

Is there a simple solution for changing the text color in the main navigation bar?  Can I do this with a snippet of code in the custom area or do I need to be working in a specific css file?

Hi glendasembreegmailcom


You can use a child theme and add CSS rules to make the changes, you have this Danny´s Child


This works fine to me !


You only need to add your custom css rules in the styles.css 

You need ti activate the Child Theme

Then edit the style.css

and write the rules




You have more information here



You take a look to the documentation here

Thanks batman

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
