Hi all, can someone help me with this? I'm trying to change the font color to white and bold so it stand out more.


Any help appreciated! Thank you.

Hi BigglyBoo,


Do you want to do this to all menu items or only some?


If you want to target only some menu items then you should find what you need in this thread:


Note that I did try Bo's suggestion of adding <span> tags to the menu items but that doesn't seem to work for the Debut theme. If you want to take that approach you will need to edit your theme's 'header.liquid' file (Online store > Themes > Actions > Edit code > Sections > header.liquid) Within that file you will need to remove the 'escape' filter from all references to your menu items. For example {{ link.title | escape }} becomes {{ link.title }}, {{ childlink.title | escape }} becomes {{ childlink.title }}, {{ grandchildlink.title | escape }} becomes {{ grandchildlink.title }}. Alternatively, you could use the other approach that I suggested in that thread.


If instead you want to change all menu items you can add some css rules to the bottom of your 'theme.scss.liquid' file (Online store > Themes > Actions > Edit code > Assets > theme.scss.liquid):

.site-nav__link--active .site-nav__label {
  border-bottom-color: white;

.site-nav__link .site-nav__label {
  color: white;

I would also suggest that instead of 'white' you use 'rgba(255,255,255,0.85)'. It will provide a slight bit of transparency to your text so that it sits better on the background colour.


Hope that helps!
