Theme Settings Colors - how to change menu text color?

I'm using the New Standard theme, and am trying to customize the colors of my site.  I can change most colors, but for some reason I can't find where to change the color of my menu text.  I want to change the text and the hover text colors.  Strangely I can change the "current page link" in the menu, but not the other links.  Is there a missing setting somewhere?  Will I have to edit the code?  Does anybody know how to edit the code to do what I want?  The list of color settings in the theme is below, as well as the site and password if you need it.

I'm not as familiar with new standard but yes, looks like you'll have to change the CSS - in the style.css file (or maybe it's style.css.liquid) at the very bottom of the file you can add this.

.nav-item .nav-item-link {
   color:  #000000 !important;

.nav-item .nav-item-link:hover {
  color: #FFFFFF !important;

the first one affects the font color of normal nav-item links (not dropdown link colors) and the second affects the colors when hovered.  The !important tells the viewer's computer that no matter what those colors are anywhere else in the code use these colors.  And the fact that you're putting this at the bottom of the style.css sheet ensures it will have the 'final say'

#000000 is black and #FFFFFF is white - it should look pretty awful ;)  so pick your own six digit hex colors and put them in there.  Don't know what color you want?  ... have fun ( -- if you want to define the color a different way you can look at this for more info
