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] Can't get submenu background color right

In the CSS inserts, I've set the background color of the menu to transparent because otherwise the background color interferes with the header image.
My problem is that when that is set to transparent I can't set the background color of the submenu. It's defaulting to white & I want it the grey color that's behind the menu.

The URL is www.mountainhcs.net.

Even setting the border to 0 around the menu (in the ATO) doesn't get rid of the color that's covering up the header image, so I just can't find the right combination of things to get it right.

Here's what I have in the snippets:

/* ================================================ */
/* Page Menu item */
/* ================================================ */
ul.rMenu li a:link,
ul.rMenu li a:visited,
ul.rMenu li a:hover,
ul.rMenu li a:active,
ul.rMenu li {
background: transparent !important;
padding-right: 15px;

div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:link {font-weight: bold;}
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:hover {font-weight: bold;}
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:visited {font-weight: bold;}
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:active {font-weight: bold;}

Thank you!

Here is some code that should get you started.
HTML Code:
.sub-menu {
    background: #ddd !important;
.sub-menu a:hover {
    color: #000 !important;
.sub-menu a:link {
    color: #fff !important;
