Header modification - color & text

Hello,
I have searched the entire forum for an answer to the following 2 questions to modify my website - themavenmethod.com

  1. How do I modify the header color (it is currently the default white)?

  2. How do I modify the header menu text - font & color (it is currently the default grey)?

Thank you very much!

Hi @derahntjohnson,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your questions.

1. How do I modify the header color (it is currently the default white)?

You can try achieving this by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of your theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Shapely Options -> Other

nav#site-navigation {
    background: #E0D8D8;
}

Please change the color value in the above code to whatever you want to use by referring the following pages.

2. How do I modify the header menu text – font & color (it is currently the default grey)?

To change it you can use the below CSS code as described above.


.menu li a {
    color: #5D2020;
    font-family: arial;
}

You are most welcome here :slight_smile:

Hi,

Any chance you can provide an update on this answer?

Going through this path,
Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Shapely Options

But, there is no “Other” under Shapely Options, only Main Options, Layout Options, or Blog Options.

I tried entering the above code in “Additional CSS” from the Customization menu, but it does not seem to make the change.

Thank you for any help you can give me!
