Can't change the current/hover background colour

  • MsCrow



    I have created and am editing a child theme for

    As you can see the current menu item and any menu item you hover over have a black background. For the life of me, I can’t find where to change this, please help!

    Thank you



    Here is the active one:

    #nav .menu li.current_page_item > a, #nav .menu li.current_page_ancestor > a, #nav .menu li.current_page_parent > a, #nav .menu li.current-menu-item > a, #nav .menu li.current-menu-parent > a, #nav .menu li.current-menu-ancestor > a, #nav .menu li.current_page_item > a:visited, #nav .menu li.current_page_ancestor > a:visited, #nav .menu li.current_page_parent > a:visited, #nav .menu li.current-menu-item > a:visited, #nav .menu li.current-menu-parent > a:visited, #nav .menu li.current-menu-ancestor > a:visited {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #000000;
    color: #DFEDFF;

    Just thinking CSS 🙂




    Thanks for your reply. I changed color to background-color, as I already had, and failed to see why it didn’t alter the black. Adding the !important tag made the difference though! I suspect I also need the !important tag for the sprite_h image. I use an altered one but the stylesheet kept referring back to the one in the graphene folder.



    Just one more question. The child pages, when hovered over, turn grey. All except ‘events’ which belongs to ‘universal training’. Any idea why?



    And one very last question…what causes the large space below the post and right-hand menu? All I can find is a padding reference of 20px but it looks much larger than that.
