How to change the 'thickness' of the title menu bar

  • thebokeeffect



    I kinda ‘solved’ in but not in the child theme.. -_- I made changes in my custom css and the background and graphene options portion..



    Btw, back to the previous question on the issue that IE and safari shows up different colors of my blog, what code do I add into my current?

    .sidebar h3{


    background:-moz-linear-gradient(#aaa, #555);

    background:-webkit-gradient(linear, 0 0, 0 bottom, from(#aaa), to(#555));

    background:linear-gradient(#aaa, #555);

    -pie-background: linear-gradient(#aaa, #555);

    border-bottom:1px solid #444;



    Hullo 🙂

    Just make the same with the Child. Then You are okay.

    But it clearly shows what happens when You update the

    theme someday.. Well my advice.

    Try my lines with Your color codes 🙂

    Have You tried right+click on Your little calendar pic in posts

    and then show background picture. Maybe one with gray colors..

    And The Themes PSD’s are here:





    I tried your lines and will check tomorrow when I have access to a laptop 🙂 *Cross fingers.

    I don’t quite understand the next part –

    I right click on my little calendar pic in posts – the one that indicates the date of the day it was written correct? But it doesn’t have an option to click to show background picture. What is the theme psd’s for?




    I wanted You to look at or notice sprite_master.png, say:


    Well, if You want to change some icons, there are many

    out there:




    Oh. Btw, another question not exactly related to this topic but I posted it under the related topic and no one has responded..don’t mind if I ask here..

    At the top menu bar when I have links to sub pages, –

    1) How do I change the ‘mouse-over’ color? It’s currently black and tad too ‘strong’.

    2) How do I change the ‘black’ color portion just below the menu links? It’s that strip of black across that separates my main blog from the header/menu portion.

    here’s the screen grab





    I will try explain in short terms. Your #nav menu looks like this now:

    #nav {
    background: url("images/sprite_h_light.png") repeat-x scroll left top #EEEEEE;
    border-top: 1px solid #BBBBBB;
    border-bottom: 3px solid #FFFFFF;
    height: 46px;
    padding-top: 12px;
    position: relative;
    width: 100%;
    z-index: 100;

    In the background line You have the sprite_h_light.png image file You must change in Your favorit image editor, like PS or PSE. With a little practice You can color the file in any color You like 🙂





    Sorry… I’m not very code savvy and don’t understand..there are two things I want to change

    1) mouse over color

    2) Background color i.e. the black strip beneath ‘home, links’, about’ etc.

    Are you saying the black ‘strip’ is actually an image that is black in color hence it’s showing up as black for the ‘strip’ and the mouse-over color?

    Sorry for all the trouble..




    Yes its a tricky one. You get there.

    Just open the image file & zoom in 🙂




    I still don’t understand :
