I'm new to silverstripe and I've some css skills so i thought, I could easy hack the default theme (blacksomthing...), but i'm stuck with the menu hover, I can't find where the color is set of the menu title more exactly the hovercolor the rounded corners is done with an image which i already custumized that..., does someone know how change this.
I've been trying to find its setting in the main layout.css (i think it was that) , typography.css files but no luck for me....

Hi Frederik,

I searched for 'hover' in layout.css and found occurrences in.


ul#Menu2 &


So it must be one of those ?

I couldnt make the theme too easy for people to edit :P anyway which menu are you taking about? the top tabs or the left sidebar

The CSS is all categorized to a point so each area is keep together. layout.css 91-145 is all the lines that control the top menu. That should be fairly clear to understand...

It should be in layout.css, I dont think it would be in typography. If it is I will slap myself because it shouldn't!.

i'm talking about the top menu....

#Navigation ul li a:hover {
background: #93C7E7 url(../images/hoverTabLeft.gif) no-repeat left top;
color: #fff;
cursor: pointer;
#Navigation ul li a:hover span {
background: #93C7E7 url(../images/hoverTabRight.gif) no-repeat right top;
cursor: pointer;

i think it would be this i don't understand how i missed that....

i'll try as soon as possible, i can't test it this week, i'm elsewere, and i host the server at my home, but did not setup an ftp(stupid me), so i can't access the files. It would be nice if there was some kind of tool in the adminpage were you can edit the files directly on the server... that's the only thing i miss sofar
ps i only have it installed 1.5 days sofar and i realy like it no more mambo for me....
