Can't find Navbar Link Color

    The areas I hi-lighted pink are controlled by @primaryLighter but I can't figure out how to individually change the font color on the navbar (Home, Members, and Help in the example above). I went though the Header and Navigation group and then every single other group and couldn't find a single bright pink text box. What am I missing?

    Search for .navTabs .navTab.PopupClosed .navLink in navigation.css

    Doh, that did the trick. Thanks, I'm continually amazed at how quickly you all keep answering my dumb questions.

    Money well spent!

    Is there a way to change this in style properties or only via css edits? The checkboxes in Navigation Tab such as underline and strike-through work but changing the colour seems to have no effect. o_O

    I've just been trying to change this in the style properties and can't do it.

    Is this a bug?

    Are you receiving errors while attempting to save it?

    If I recall some text colour nav changes don't seem to take when done through the style properties. Probably best doing it via EXTRA.CSS

    No, as Shelly says, in style properties it does not change the text colour for the nav bar even when you set it too.

    I know it's been reported and bug reports submitted so the devs are aware of it. I'm not sure what happened or what the outcome of those reports were so you may want to look for those. I'm quite sure one of the reports were reported by @Adam Howard if you are curious what the outcome of that was. I'm sure the other person who reported, maybe mentioned this was @CyberAP but I'm guessing and not 100% sure on that.

    At least I supported that. Still, I can't see the reason why it's done that way. It is very complicated not only for beginners but for developers too.
    And the solution is very simple: just make an individual style property for the link itself, not its container.

    I have to admit, for beginners starting out they can be sat there for hours wondering why text isn't changing (and it has happened before) on a few occasions where they've been baffled for hours. Because we are aware of it we know so we just move on from it but it's a little niggle that can be time consuming to someone not aware of this issue.

    I'm the noob then as I spent quite some time changing every text colour I could find in the style properties related to anything Nav hoping it would be the right one.

    I don't mind using tms or extra.css but for something that prominent I was expecting it to be there.
