How to extend page menu background color across layout

I am a volunteer working on a nonprofit website. I am having trouble finding the place to add the background color for the page menu so it goes across the layout. The background color is 01928F. I want to change the dashed line around the page menu to solid also.

And how to remove the black lines above and below the header image. Thanks for help.

Because that is a center aligned menu I remember that it was a bit more of an issue to make the background go the full width. Look in ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts for menu related CSS and start playing with some of the setting. You may have to set a width on
HTML Code:
div#menu1 ul.rMenu
so I would start by setting a static layout width to your site of about 900 to 1000px.

Also do a search for center aligned menus.

I am not an CSS expert so I don't know how to do what you suggest. I tried Juggledad 's

div#menu1 {
background: #01928F;
}
idea when he suggested it for someone else but that didn't change the menu.

Maybe this can at least get you started in the right direction.
  • In ATO>Style & Configure Layout set the width to a static size of around 900px to 1000px
  • Add the following code to ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts changing the width and color as desired. It's not centered but it's a start.
HTML Code:
div#menu1 ul.rMenu {width:1000px;background-color:#000000 !important;}
