    Hi,

    I was wondering if it would be possible to change the color of the main menu to say a blue and with that the text color to a white?

    Thanks

    Thanks

    Hello,

    I would like to know how to change the attributes of the text within the main menu

    I’m not quite sure what you’re looking to do. Can you be a little more specific?

    Yes. I’m looking to create a menu similar to the one on bransontraveloffice.com i.e. larger font and/or bolder. Not sure if it would be possible, but I would like to use h1 or h2 tags around the menu items for SEO purposes.

    Any stylistic changes would just be CSS Customizations you’d need to make to the theme.

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    #menu-wrapper #main-menu .menu a { ... }

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.

    Not sure if it would be possible, but I would like to use h1 or h2 tags around the menu items for SEO purposes.

    The HTML markup of the menu itself is actually something that is determined by WordPress with the wp_nav_menu function. This isn’t going to be easy to change. You can find where the theme uses this function in /includes/theme-functions.php. You’d need to create a custom walker for it.

    Thanks! I was able to do it using Firebug.
