Remove "strong" tag from nav menu links

  • carlyas


    Hi, total newbie here, to WP, graphene, and web design in general… so I apologize if I’m going about this the wrong way.

    It seems the nav menu links are bold by default. When I test my site in Firefox and inspect with Firebug, there is a “strong” tag surrounding the menu items in the HTML, but no corresponding font weight settings in the CSS that I can see. How do I make the font a normal weight?

    Thanks for the help!

    Okay, I don’t like this, because it’s a bit of a hack (because I can’t figure out how this bit of the CSS is supposed to work), but you can try adding this to your custom CSS:

    #header-menu > li {

    It will work until I come up with something less hacky.




    Thanks, Ken; that did that trick. Is there a reason why it’s not ideal to do it that way?

    I don’t like it because I don’t understand what’s making the text bold in the first place. (This REALLY puzzled me, and still does.) It’s really better to understand what’s happening before jumping in and making changes, or else you risk making some unintended changes.

    That said, I don’t think this fix will upset anything else. But like I said, I’m still looking for something less hacky.
