Hi @twacomm-store , go to edit code > assets > base.css and add this:

.header-wrapper--border-bottom{
background:#a01f1f!important;
}

Thank you so much for your reply. I tried that but made the header a different color and not just the menu. Any ideas. Thanks again for your help

Yeah, I though that you meant menu background. 😂
Go to edit code > assets > base.css and add this:

.header__menu-item span{
color:#a01f1f;

Well were getting there. Now it just made the text red, but not the navigation bar.

@twacomm-store , well that's specific. You have to share url so I can send you the code. 🙂

Hi @twacomm-store , go to edit code > sections > header.liquid and look for this:

<header class="header header--top-left page-width header--has-menu">

Remove 'page-width'.

Hi @MarinaPetrovic, I am trying to do the same thing as @twacomm-store did. I managed to change the color to white, but can't get the menu bar to be full page. 

 

It seems as if the code in the latest Dawn theme version might be a little bit different. 

Any ideas how to get the menu to be full page? Thank you.

 

 

<header class="header header--{{ section.settings.logo_position }} header--mobile-{{ section.settings.mobile_logo_position }} page-width{% if section.settings.menu != blank %} header--has-menu{% endif %}">

Thanks for the fast response. I've sent you a PM.

Hey @Boky , go to edit code > sections > header.liquid, look for this:

 <header class="header header--{{ section.settings.logo_position }} header--mobile-{{ section.settings.mobile_logo_position }} page-width{% if section.settings.menu_type_desktop == 'drawer' %} drawer-menu{% endif %}{% if section.settings.menu != blank %} header--has-menu{% endif %}">

replace it with:

 <header class="header header--{{ section.settings.logo_position }} header--mobile-{{ section.settings.mobile_logo_position }} {% if section.settings.menu_type_desktop == 'drawer' %} drawer-menu{% endif %}{% if section.settings.menu != blank %} header--has-menu{% endif %}">

After that go to assets > base.css and add this:

.header__inline-menu{
width:100%;
text-align:center;
}

Hi @MarinaPetrovic - do you know how to change the color of just one item in the header navigation? I want my 'sale' section to be red, but keep all my other navigation headers black.

Thanks!

like a few people posting at the end here, I am also looking for a solution to change the color of just a single menu item in the header of the dawn theme. 

 

Here is my url https://liriodumplings.com/

 

ideally, the word 'tienda' would be red.

 

Thank you!

oh, actually I think I figured it out for others who might be interested 

 

Going to the edit theme code page, under 'Assets' find the base.css and add 

 

.header__inline-menu .list-menu li:nth-child(1) a{color: red !important;}

 

anywhere after where it says ":root {"

 

just change 'red' to whatever color or color code you want. and change the number in the parenthesis after "child" to the corresponding menu item you want to change the color of. In this case, 1 was the first item, but if you wanted to changed it to the third item for example, change it to (3). 

 

 

Cheers!

Hello Lirio,

 

The coding you provided worked great for the first menu item but I want it to be on the eight menu item Sale. I changed the number to (8) and it did not work. My menu changes depending on the what collections are in season so I would have to make note where I make the change so I can change the code as the position on the menu changes, is that correct?  Here's my url: https://aliscouture.com/

Hiya Marina,

This worked for me, however my menu bar is not fully across the page. It has a white section either side, which part of the code do I need to edit to fix this please? Thanks

Hi @MarinaPetrovic 

You have been amazing and sadly I have joined the chat a bit later 😄

 

Could you please have a look at my website too by any chance? I've tried that 4-5 different codes but none of them worked for me.

 

I would like the SALE collection to be colored to #C51E3A in the navigation. FYI I'm using Buddha mega menu navigation app if that could be the problem why it's not working for me.

 

The website's URL is this: https://luvpip.com/

 

Thanks for looking into this 🙂

Hi @Luvpip  go to edit code > assets > base.css and add this:

li.buddha-menu-item:first-child a{
color:#C51E3A;
}

 

Best
