Theme is being ignored on Home Page

Go to solution Solved by Mark.Hook,

Hi Squarespace Folks!

For the life of me, I cannot figure out why the color theme is being ignored on my home screen. I removed all custom code from my site thinking that would have an effect, but that didn't help either. I even tried using custom code to set the hamburger menu as a different color, and that was ignored all the same.

In the screenshot provided, I'm calling out the fact that the hamburger menu is unable to be seen, as my color theme is a black background here, but being changed to white (same as menu icon). Additionally calling out my menu button is functioning as expected and you can see the menu items populated on my screen. So the issue is UI only.


Appreciate your help in advance!

For a quick fix, you can try plugging the below code into the Advanced tab of your homepage settings...


@media screen and (max-width: 799px) {

.burger-inner > div {
background-color: black !important;

.header-menu-nav-folder.header-menu-nav-folder--active {
background: #dfd40e;




There's a chance your header is set to dynamic background and trying to adjust the background based on the color theme of your first page section. You may take a look at the Header settings > Style and select "Solid"

Best guess is that you've adjusted the MENU OVERLAY background colour to be transparent. You should be able to find this in the Styles Menu under Design and then adjust that setting within the correct colour theme.
