Hey Everyone!

Before I start asking stuff, I just wanted to thank you guys for making Indexhibit happen. This site builder website rocks!!!!! I would also like to let everyone know that I am a total Non-Programmer, and that even though I understand some of the HTML stuff I'm very new CSS

Question: How do I change my menu bar color?

I want it to be black.

Ive check the HTML/CSS Basic and was able to change background color but could not find the anything on Menu color.

I've also looked around through the other threads a bit and couldn't find it.

Please help me out whenever you get a chance.

Thanks

Hey

That didnt change the menu color. I typed #menu { background-color:black; } in the Exhibits: Settings Pre-Nav Text (HTML Allowed)

Was I supposed to do it somewhere else?

I'm such a newbie at this...

Thanks

Ok so I read the html/css basics thread. And I found the style.css file. I changed the file in text edit by adding...

#menu { background-color:000000; }

saved it and replaced it in ftp server overwriting previous style.css

It still did not work. Any suggestions?

I cant open your site to check. But did you test to insert #000000 instead of 000000
?

I tried that just now and it didn't work either.

Thats my site. I even tried changing alot of the #fff to #000 all over the script and even that didnt do much.

Not sure what to do anymore...

Can I declare some kind of background image as a menu and make the image a black solid?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,.. I'll have a links page eventually and I'll be sure to give all of you credit on it, once the website is up and running properly.

Thanks

What is the 'menu bar'? I'm not sure what this would be?

Do you mean the background color?

  1. #menu { background-color: #000; }

If it's not working...make sure you are editing the right style sheet. And hold down Shift and refresh the browser - it might be backed up in the browser cache.

hmmm,..

Okay I think its the menu but I'm not sure. It might just be be called a frame or something. Like I said, sorry guys Im not a programmer/web designer.

Please check my site http://kaliptus.com/

Its the white background on the left with all the links on it that I want to change to black or even make it look better.

If you guys could help me out that would be so awesome

Thanks!

This is what it says in the stylesheet at /ndxz-studio/site/sample/style.css

this is the stylesheet for your site. note how it says the background color is #fff. that means white...

  1. #menu {
  2.     width: 215px;
  3.     overflow: auto;
  4.     top: 0;
  5.     bottom: 0;
  6. ¬†¬†¬†¬†left: 0;
  7.     position: fixed;
  8.     height: 100%;
  9. ¬†¬†¬†¬†background-color: #fff;
  10. }

I am having trouble with the changing of color. I did what Vaska wrote, but it seems
like my sample-theme is not working correctly. The sample/style is the problem, i don´t have any difficulties changing in index.
What might be the problem?

Best, Jeppe

Hey jeppejust, please show us your site. Did you change your theme to sample in the admin area?

Hi,
My site is http://carolynfrisch.com/ i have followed these instructions about 25 times, over and over, and ive emptied my cache each time and refreshed the browser by pressing shift+refresh on the browser bar. Nothing is working. All of my type continues to be gray+underlines. I'm trying to create a hover color background of #00FFFF and a visited color of #cccccc. My site preference is set to Sample, and i am accessing the style.css in the sample folder through the Fetch and editing in Text Edit. Please help!!
