    Hi,

    I’ve been trying to change a couple things in Scribble and I’m stuck.

    1. How can i make the background red? Meaning the left and right columns that flank the site, which is a white background.

    2. Trying to change the color of the text in the drop down nav buttons. Right now, it’s a red background with black or dark blue type. I would like that type to be a light grey to stand out more on the red button.

    I’ve attempted to inspect the code, but both issues are alluding me. Thanks very much for any insight.

    1. Your background is a image in your theme folder called bg.png (it’s white) – you can replace that with another image of your choosing. Just note that the “background” of your site includes the middle content area, so replacing that bg.png with a solid color red will remove the white of your content area, too.

    2. Look for this in your stylesheet: Replace #333 with the color of your choice.

    
    #nav li li a:hover,
    #nav li li a:active {
     background-color: #fff;
     color: #333;
    }

    Thank you so much! Mystery Solved.  May i ask another question? I have the Return to Top at the bottom of my site, and when i click on it nothing happens. Can you tell me where i’d edit this piece to make it scroll back up to the top?

    Many thanks again.

    Best,

    Mary

    Mary – it works for me (I’m using Google Chrome). You could try on another computer (or another browser) to test.

    But, in the meantime, here’s a link to update that area if you want to:

    You’re welcome.

    I meant to say – I love the header on your site! :)

    I’ll go ahead and close this thread as “resolved” – go ahead and start another thread if you have more questions.
