Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] Change Current Menu Item's Background to Transparent

I am 95% of where I need to be with my menu bar. I wanted my menu items within the Header image so I tried using negative margins to move it up. However, I found Google Chrome did not properly display the menu items (they bunched up on top of one another).

To work around this, I created a image for the menu bar that sits right below the Header image. I pieced together code from various posts to come up with the following (see results at www.ewrittenword.com). What is not working is the current page still shows a background color rather than transparent. Would someone take a quick look at my coding and offer suggestions to fix and perhaps clean it up?
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:link,
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:hover,
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:visited,
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:active {
font-weight: bold;
ul.rMenu li {
margin-right: 40px;
/*reset for submenus*/
ul.rMenu li ul li {
margin-right: 0;
div#menu1 ul.rMenu {
background:transparent url(http://MenuBanner.png);
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li {
