How to I change the "header bars" colors?

  • alissah


    I just started my blog and I’m trying to design it, however I ran into a little problem. I can’t change the “header bars” color. The only option I found was to change it from a blackish color to a whitish color. Neither color looks good with my color scheme. How to I change it to the bluish color I have (#63bfb6)?

    I know nothing about html and css, but I can copy and paste and follow directions.

    Also, how to I change the color of the copyright background?

    Nope, was that even in english?

    I need to know what code I need and WHERE to paste it. That’s all. A long conversation full of different codes and words I don’t understand doesn’t help. It also sounds like that person was looking for something a little different than me, I’m not looking for hover colors. I can’t decipher what I do and don’t need from what was posted there, and again I don’t even know what they were talking about, and they didn’t mention WHERE to paste a code.

    Like I said, I know nothing about this stuff. That’s why I’m here.




    Also, looking at the website they were working on, they still have the original bar color… so the advice either didn’t work or they’re talking about something else.

    #11 will get you started….

    Everything else you ask for has been answered in this forum already. Take a look around and I’m sure you will find it.

    Good luck,




    oops. I thought this forum was a place for people who had questions and didn’t know how to do stuff. My mistake!

    have a good day.



    Oh, could someone tell me where to get some coding advice for the Graphene WordPress theme, since this place is only for people who already learned coding?




    Add this to your custom css box in your admin panel under graphene options:

    #header-menu {
    background: none;
    background-image: none;
    background-color: #63BFB6;

    What you should remember in the future, is that we all VOLUNTEER our time here on the forum. In my honest opinion, this forum has one of the fastest response rates I’ve seen.

    If we took the time looking at everyone’s problem specifically, we wouldn’t get very far. So at times, we try to reference our other forum posts and hope they point you in the right direction. If they do not, please let us know and we will continue our efforts to help you.

    Please remember this in the future. Sarcasm will get you nowhere.

    I thought this forum was a place for people who had questions and didn’t know how to do stuff.

    This is exactly what this forum is for, among others, but a prerequisite to that is the willingness to learn. The only place where you’ll find that prerequisite is not required is the marketplace.



    Thanks Josh, worked perfectly. It was very nice of you to show me what and where.

    Except theres two other black bars that didn’t change. (at the very top and very bottom)

    Would I simply change the “#header-menu” to whatever those things are called? …and where might I find out what they’re called? And I’m assuming I would post those new codes into custom css?

    And Syahir, I am willing to learn. That link just looked like it was about something else. And Many of those codes looked different from what Josh just showed me, and it sounded like it was about hover codes which is not what I’m looking for. Again, I’m a beginner, that doesn’t mean I’m not willing to learn it just means I don’t know anything so talking to me like I do know something about coding isn’t going to help.
