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] Menu bar background color error

I'm setting the colour for the menu bar with ATO> Page Menu Bar > Background color. The button is changing colour, but the bar remains white. Any suggestions?


Also, I can't edit the dashed line around the page menu bar. It won't go away...

Thank you.

I just moved the menu bar to the side on the first site, but I'm having the same problem with another one I'm working on:


Thank you.

I believe the color of the bar itself is set in

Style & configure layout-->Layout Container Style

using the background property.

This also sets the background color for the logo area, I believe, so you may have to make a choice (or create a logo graphic as wide as your layout, so that no background shows).

Did that with a lovely gray to test and it changes the entire page.


There should be a way to change just the menu bar.

OSX 10.11.5 WP 4.x Atahualpa(all) Safari, Firefox, Chrome
Add the following to ATO->HTML/CSS Inserts->CSS Inserts
HTML Code:
div#menu1 {
	background: #xxxxxx;
where xxxxxx = the hex value for the color you want, you will probably want it to match the value at ATO->Page Menu Bar->Background color

For Caterory Menubar use
HTML Code:
div#menu2 {
	background: #xxxxxx;
