How to modify the website

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.welovecmcs.org/


This is my first time to come here and also use SquareSpace product so I might ask something that it's already asked in the past but please bare with me.

I was asked to modify and make it look better on my son's school website but I have no idea where to go and modify the 
css. The version of this template is: 

Version 7.0– Brine family (Mentor template)

I searched around and found out that it seems like I need to go to Design section and modify however, I don't see anything like that after I log in. This is all I have in the menu. 


Basically, what I want to change are: 

- To add background color on the main navigation on the top (it's very hard to see)

- To change the photo on the top to much simple image 

- To change the structure of layout of the top page (where it says "Welcome Families & Friends of Community! along with 2 buttons and the Youtube video)

- The width of contents from full width to 880px

I see Edit buttons when I log in but it doesn't let me change anything, just asking me to add a new element.

Is there any way to make these happens in the widget or do I need to add custom css for these? 
If anyone can guide me through, I'd much appreciate it. 
And please let me know if there is any info is missing in order to answer my questions.

Thanks in advance,
