A few questions on nav/site title colours in 7.1

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

As 7.1 is still Early Access, I guess there are a few bugs here and there. However, does anyone have any experience with changing the colour of the site title/nav bar background when scrolling (the background on which the site title/nav bar appears when scrolling upwards)? This background appears black no matter how I change the site/nav bar colours in Settings.

Another question is whether it would be possible to make nav items transparent/change colour when hovering over them.

I've just started building one of my main sites from scratch in 7.1 using the Clarkson "template"/setup, so it's not public – however, if you preview the Clarksom template, you can see the nav bar scrolling background issue in the demo page.

Thanks for any help!

@thormodkvam You can use custom code. If you share url, i can take a look.

Hi again, @tuanphan. Don't you think this functionality should be part of the standard style settings, without the need of custom code in order to fix such basic things like hover/overlay colours and nav bar background colours? My actual question is whether there's something I'm not seeing. If one needs custom code to change these things, it might be better to stay on 7.0 for a little longer... what do you think/are there more known bugs/lack of functionality?

Regarding the header background colour I’ve linked to the below support document which explains how the colour is set. If you’re using a transparent header then the scroll colour is set by the first sections colour pallet.


That's very helpful indeed – thanks so much, @ThompsonWebDesign!

Any idea regarding navigation link hover transparency? Perhaps this style attribute is left out entirely in 7.1 (I haven't found it in any of the other templates either, after having checked (almost..) all of them).

Hi all! I'm hoping I could get some help - I'm trying to figure out how to keep my header background the same color as my website. I'm using SS7.1 and when I add an image right underneath the header the image becomes part of the header. Any way I can keep this from happening?   I would like the image to start right under the header. I appreciate any help!
