Good Morning,

I was wondering, is there a way that you know of to create a solid background color for the mega menu instead of just White. For example the selected color of an item, having that color go all the way across the menu replaceing the white background with a solid blue background. Something similar to www.scguard.army.mil/

Also, i want to use a module that displays multiple articles in a scrolling fashion to replace the main content area of the site instead of displaying a single article. Can this be done? in if so which module postion shall it be assigned to. An example of what im trying to accomplish can also be seen on the above web url.

Thanks in advance!

You have that in template parameters, if you use pre-defined style then you need to alter

/styles/styleX.php where X is number of your style.

Cahnge this:

$mainMenuHoverText = "#FFFFFF"; (this is from style1.php)

$mainMenuHoverText = "#FFFFFF"; is not the right paramater as it changes the mouse over "hover" text color.

What i'm looking for is the ability to have the entire menu look like its superimpossed over top of a blue background. for example. instead of having a single tab that shows the selected page i would like the background to go all the way across the banner.. hard to explain but visit the url i posted and you'll see what i mean, but the $mainMenuHoverText = "#FFFFFF"; is def not what i was looking for :(

also any word on the suggested module postion as to insert a article slide show module to replace the main featured article area?

For first question it appears I can not get it, can you send some illustration.

For second use inset or toolbar postion. See this:

as always thanks for the quick responses and support! i was able to get the inset postion to work for me, just might have to look at resizeing to reduce gaps/spaces or padding between other module positions so that the overbearing white background im useing for the page is masked by the back ground of module postions a little.

attached is an image that might help you understnad what im trying to accomplish. in the image is a screenshot of my megamenu top menu with the homepage selected as the active focus so its tab background is blue. The rest of the times in the menu have a white background. You'll see a black box drawn surrounding all items. What i would like to do, is replace the defualt white background of the items in the menu with a blue background creating a solid blue background seperating the Banner above and the content below. im not concerned as much with a active tab color showing which page your currently viewing as much as i would like to have a background other then white on all items in the menu

Does this help a little?

Add this to bottom of template_css.css:

.menumega{
background-color: #ebac04;
}

where #ebac04 you should change to desired color. Or if it looks better you can also do this:

#topmenu_pad{
background-color: #ebac04;
}

-second will color wider area around menu bar.
