Custom Menu

Recommended Posts

I need help on customizing a menu. I'm completely new to coding for website design so bare with me. I want to customize the menu of my website to have a background that I created. I don't want the default solid color, I want to be able to put my own created menu from adobe illustrator. How would I go about doing this?

right now I have an idea of what i want on there but i want the brick background to stay behind the menu and in the footer, and i want the logo portion that's under it to be its own picture. I also want everything to update in size when the window is shrunk.

website: sphere-sunfish-5hfj.squarespace.com

Do you mean changing background color of the header and the footer?

yes I want it to be that brick pattern

You can try adding to Home > Design > Custom Css

#header.shrink .header-border, #header .header-border {
  background: url(https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1637358650228-76cb3810b46e?ixlib=rb-1.2.1&ixid=MnwxMjA3fDB8MHxwaG90by1wYWdlfHx8fGVufDB8fHx8&auto=format&fit=crop&w=870&q=80);
}
footer .section-background {
    background: url(https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1637358650228-76cb3810b46e?ixlib=rb-1.2.1&ixid=MnwxMjA3fDB8MHxwaG90by1wYWdlfHx8fGVufDB8fHx8&auto=format&fit=crop&w=870&q=80);
}

footer * {
  color: #fff;
}

Change the url with your photo/color you want to apply

Let me know how it works on your site.

works awesome! thanks so much. do you know if there's a way to take out the home button in the menu? I only want the home page to be accessible through pressing the logo on the left hand side

Have you tried dragging your Home Page to Not Link in Home > Pages yet?

 Hope it can help you
