    Problem changing menu bar color

    When I change the color of my menu bar, there appears to be a grid around the options that stays the original color. I even deleted the default menu bar, and created a new one. Same problem. Screenshot can be viewed at https://www.dropbox.com/s/ahma6wcc11dqjlt/Menu%20Bar.png?dl=0. Default color was a yellow gold. I'm trying to change it to a dark red. What am I doing wrong?

    Hey @kharding1958

     

    Welcome to the community! Smiley Happy

     

    Looks like this might be part of the theme which can't be directly controlled through the color options within the page designer. Your welcome to reach out to our live support so they can help review it with you directly to see if there's another solution with the theme you're using.

     

    Let us know what they manage to find for you.

    Re: Problem changing menu bar color

    You're right.  These separating lines are based on the theme.  It doesn't make any sense that they would have the option to change the color of the bar, but not give you the option to change the color of these lines.  Or at least associate the color of these lines to the color the user chooses for the bar.  The Chat Agent said she would pass along my suggestion to give users the option to change the color of the separating lines.

    I don't have outlines on the major menu items, but I do have them around the drop-down menu boxes. Anyone know if this can be fixed?

    Hi @MelissaTodd!

     

    Welcome to the community! Navigation design is part of the them you've chosen. The only way to change it is to change the theme. This restarts the site.

    Is there any way of being able to change this using HTML coding, rather than rebuilding the site from scratch?

    Re: Problem changing menu bar color

    That's a really bad feature of WB.  It's a great idea to have themes, but a terrible one to not allow even basic formatting/styling changes (same with line spacing in text boxes).  If you use/buy themes from just about any provider on the  web for Wordpress (for instance) you can change virtually anything in the style sheets to achieve the look/feel or color palette you want.  I understand that WB is a rudimentary product, but those are fairly rudimentary changes.  Hope this changes soon.

    Agree 100% - this absolutely needs to be an offered tool. It's a basic one.

    Hi @MikSet,

     

    What platform are you using?  GoCentral or WordPress?  This will determine how your question is answered.  Basically,  both platforms have a "customizer"  that allows for changes.  Take some time to read and work your way through some of the help, particularly if you are using WordPress.  A little prep work can save you a ton of headaches.

     

    Hope this helps,

    James

    Hi James,

    I found some answers in the community:

    https://www.godaddy.com/help/adding-custom-css-7714 says that solution is to add some custom CSS.

     It is referring to web builder version 6 and the shown navigation seems not valid in current version.

    Unfortunately I can't find any similar information about how to add custom CSS into version 7 

    Can you please give me some indication about how to add custom CSS in version 7

     

     

     

    Thank you very much in advance

     

    Re: Problem changing menu bar color

    I have the same issue.  Spent about 45 min on tech support chat and could not get it resolved at that time.  I had to end the session for another commitment.  This looks like it should be a pretty standard feature.  The ability to change sub-menu colors should be built into the site builder,  just like the color change for the top navigation bar.  At the very least, an easy way to edit the site wide CSS should be available. It looks like Ver 6 of the website builder offered this, but I no longer see  the option.  Can we get a solid reply from an admin on this?
