    I would like to change the background color of my subnav bar. I tried to change the ‘subnav.png’ file but it did nothing. How can I change the color from the default white/gray?

    Is there a way to put a space between it and the header. It constantly cuts off the bottom of the header, no matter what height I make it.





    Hi Gary,

    Line #578 of your CSS has the code for the background color of the subnav bar. Right now it’s reading the subnav.png file. You could change this to a solid color by erasing the “background” line and adding another line:

    #subnav {
    background-color: #333333;

    #333333 would give you an almost black color, but substitute that hex code with whichever color you’d want.

    For the header height, you need to go into functions.php and look for this code:

    /** Add support for custom header */
    add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array( ‘width’ => 920, ‘height’ => 170 ) );

    Change the 170 to fit the height of your header – maybe 180 or so? Then I believe you’d need to reupload the header image.

    Hope this helps!
