    Hi everyone.

    First, let me make clear that I'm an amateur at modding themes. CSS can be a challenge to me.

    So I'm really having a hard time figuring out something that must be very simple. I checked the forums here for information, which have been partially helpful. So, the problem:

    I simply cannot get the active link on the Thematic menu to change color. It's pink right now (

    I've successfully modified other link colors and backgrounds. But I'm having trouble with that specific pink link (...and it rhymes).

    Any help would be very much appreciated, very much.

    The sticky on menus demystified is the best starting point. However, I think you might have added a plugin related to menus? If so it seems that that style sheet is overriding other settings. You could change the style in there where there (found at: wp-content/plugins/dropdown-menu-widget/themes/simple.css) are two lines using the pink color:
    ul.dropdown a:active { color: #ed008c; }
    li.current-cat a, li.current_page_item a, li.current-menu-item a,
    li.current-cat a:link, li.current_page_item a:link, li.current-menu-item a:link,
    li.current-cat a:visited, li.current_page_item a:visited, li.current-menu-item a:visited{ color: #ed008c; }

  3. yup that pink is from the drop-down menu widget? to what end are you using that? thematic supports a WP3.0-style menu that is totally customizable right out of the box.

    Yes, there was a widget.

    I can't even remember having installed it. Would you know I had installed a drop down menu?

    My frustration is gone. :)

    Great advice. Many thanks!
