    Hi, I would like to change the color of the line on top of the image and the menu bar beneath the image in the Twenty Ten theme. I’ve tried a few things in CSS and nothing seems to work.

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is alphanovember5.wordpress.com.

    Add this to your custom CSS and change the #000000 hex color codes to your desired color.

    #branding img {
    border-bottom:1px solid #000000;
    border-top:4px solid #000000;
    }
    
    #access {
    background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #000000;
    }

    Hello!

    I’ve tried to add this code to my custom css code to change my menu from black to white and it doesn’t seem to be working. Is there something I’m missing?

    #branding img {
    border-bottom:1px solid #000000;
    border-top:4px solid #000000;
    }

    #access {
    background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #000000;
    }

    Did you change the hex color code listed in the background declaration under #access? The code shown in my example is black.

    The border declarations under #header img have to do with the top and bottom border on the header image.

    Thanks so much, worked like a charm!

    Thesacredpath you have been so helpful – may I ask a question?

    What about changing the drop down menu color as well as the menu font color.

    Mix and match these to set the background and text colours for normal and hover states, all you need to do is change the hex colour codes:

    #access li:hover > a, #access ul ul:hover > a {background:#f00; color:#f0f;}
    #access ul ul a {background:#0f0;}
    #access a {color:#00f;}

    Thank you that worked well.

    Now I am tinkering with the color of font in my side bar. ADVICE? I would like the font color to be :#cc193f

    Specifically for the catergories, links and latest post. The titles may remain black.

    This will do the links:

    #primary a, #secondary a {color:#cc193f;}

    Hallluke you are marvelous!

    My last tinker is increasing the height of the header photo? Is that even possible?

    Again thanks for your advice I am really grateful. – Kathleen

    I am trying this but I must be doing something wrong. Maybe adding it to the wrong editor area. I am so new to all this.

    I would like to change the two lines on twentyten that are on top and bottom of header to white with black text on the menu bar. Help :D
