    Hi, all. I am trying to change the background color of a drop down menu. When you hover over the link “Writing Classes” in my horizontal menu, you get a drop down menu. However, I cannot seem to access “ul.submenu” which appears to be the right one to style. The dropdown only appears on hover, so it is difficult to use Firebug, but I have seen that .submenu class. I cannot find it in the style sheets, however,

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated – I am stumped.

    Thanks!!

    Hi!

    It looks like the background color is being set on the ‘a’ tag of the submenu on line 392 of style.

    #nav li li a, #nav li li a:link, #nav li li a:visited {
    -moz-border-bottom-colors: none;
    -moz-border-left-colors: none;
    -moz-border-right-colors: none;
    -moz-border-top-colors: none;
    background-color: #111111;
    border-color: #444444;
    border-image: none;
    border-right: 1px solid #444444;
    border-style: solid;
    border-width: 0 1px 1px;
    color: #999999;
    font-size: 11px;
    padding: 5px 10px;
    position: relative;
    text-transform: none;
    width: 128px;
    }

    Try changing the background color there. Hope this helps!

    You are welcome! Happy to help… I think there is a dropdown at the top of the question to mark it as resolved in the forums. :D
