Change header colour and logo on one page

Recommended Posts

Hi there.

I'm trying to change the header colour and logo on one page of my website.


Basically my website is light grey with black text and black logo. I want to change one page so the header is black with white type and white logo. (but the page background remains the same colour). So it looks like the attached image. Almost an inverted version of the header if that makes sense.

If someone could help i'd appreciate it a lot!

Note: I have already put in custom CSS to give me that header in the first place as it's not part of the template (AVENUE)

I'd suggest you look at your custom code first, then try to style it further. The changes you make to fix the current issues will likely change the answer to your question. This is what it currently looks like on mobile:

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the update. Yeah the custom code i put in for my header makes it do this.

However I'm on my mobile now and it doesn't show like it does in your attached picture. I disabled mobile settings so it appears the same as it does on desktops. So it looks like a mini website almost.

Not ideal, but I don't know how to code it so the header and links shrink down with it. But always open to suggestions :P haha.

Thanks very much!

Hey, this is brilliant!!!! Thank you so much.

I'm really quite useless with code: do you know if I'm able to do this with my footer also?

And in regards to your comment about the logo image. Yes I have coded that in there so it sits where it does (in the middle, on top of the header etc.)

Do you know if it's possible to some how invert the logo or upload a white version just for that page.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you!

This code worked great for me- thanks! But my social icons didn't change color, do you have the code for that?


Hi Noah,

You'll need custom code for this...Paste this into the header code injection area of that index only (you'll need to also alter the logo image which seems like it has been custom coded in):

#header {background-color: #111 !important;}
#header a {color: #fff !important;}

Hello,  I have selected a solid header for my test page in the website settings. Can I change the color of this header background from page to page? For example, on one page a blue navigation header, on the other page a red one.

You can change First Section Color to achieve this
