Author Topic: Main menu items and first word color  (Read 243 times)

I'm currently developing site and have changed the colors and figured out most of the elements to this template. However, I have two items that I was wondering if I could change without problems.

1)  It took me awhile to figure out that the accordian menu and the menu above image fader have to be the same (mainmenu)in order for it to show.  Is there a way to separate these two menus to where you can change the menu items in the menu above the image fader and not the accordian menu on the side. 

2)  Is the setting for the first colored word in the modules a css entry or it is somewhere else?  Can it be changed so its all the same color?

Thanks in advance.

Hello, the colors are called in the index.php file. Can you please post a url and mention the specific text you would like changed?

Thanks Mike,  I finally researched and found that it was controlled by "s5_h3_first" using the "highlight_2" setting from the parameters.  After some searching I determined it wasn't in the template css file and did find it in the index.php. However, I wasn't sure I wanted to mess with it as my php knowledge is very limited.  I understand enough to sort of figure it out but would have no idea how to change anything if I broke it. I finally tried just removing the reference to it in the style class grouping in s5_highlight_2 (see below) and it partially worked by making the text all white but I still can't change the mod heading color to something else unless I know what is controlling it (I need to do further research on it). I also still need to watch it to make sure it didn't mess something else up.  I'm wondering also can I just add "s5_h3_first" in the template css and control manually. My problem is I don't know how many places it might be used and would this catch it them all since the php is controlling it.

BTW it's the first word in the mod title.  In your TOS demo, it's the yellow text "S5" in "S5 Accordian Menu" or "Helpful" in "Helpful Links".  I don't have it online yet, I'm working on it locally right now so I can't give you url.

Here's where I removed it.
#s5_navv ul, #s5_navv a:hover, #s5_navv a.sfhover, #s5_bottom_wrap ul a, #s5_right .module_round_box #current a, #s5_left .module_round_box #current a, #s5_left .module_round_box div ul.s5_am_innermenu a, #s5_right .module_round_box div ul.s5_am_innermenu a {
color:#<?php echo $s5_highlight_2 ?>;

I fixed my problem on the menu... I had to change the menu name on the accordian menu and leave the drop-down as mainmenu. If drop down isn't named mainmenu then it doesn't display, at least it didn't for me but it might be something from my current site that I missed while changing from one template style to a new one.
