For some reason my website title, The Devout Woodworker is not showing on any of my website pages! It was working fine the last time I was on it! Anyone know what the heck went

Glad you fixed it :)

I DID IT!!! It was that I had change the color of my title, inadvertently, to black which is the same color as the background! Duh!!! My bad!! Thanks for the help guys!!!

These things happen to the best of us :-) And you may have helped someone else here to avoid this mistake - or figure out to fix it if it happens to them.

I think I know what happened, when I was changing colors on the stylesheet, I might have changed the title to black! Let me see if that's what happened

Exactly :) Fix the colours.

I was working on the "stylesheet the other day trying to change the color of the menu bar from red to some other color, with no luck I might add, could that effected it by some chance?

Well, I'm not exactly sure what you may have done. The only thing I can suggest is going to the Header Menu (under Appearance) and make sure the box is checked that reads "show header text".

You can also go to Customize (also under Appearance) and make sure the name is in the "Site Title" box, (also if you have a tagline)

When I wanted to change the color of my site, I had to go to the actual menu for the theme I am using and change the colors from there. Check under the Appearance section and see if you see ("the name of your theme") Options. You can get to the advanced appearance settings there.

If you are not sure of the name of the theme you are using, you can find it by going to your website. (scroll down to the bottom footer area and you should see it read something about "powered by wordpress and _____ theme.

I hope this helped.
If you are still having trouble, you can send me the link for your site and I can take a look.

I can go to Google and enter The devout woodworker in the search, the website comes up, but not title!

Do you mean the title in the browser window? As I can see it is working. The format is 'Page / Post title * Website title' isn't it?

It's the title in the header "The Devout Woodworker"

Did you check out the site Shawn?

Did you update Wordpress by chance?

No sir

Here's my website, http://thedevoutwoodworker.com/

It was suggested that I need to change my menu color from red, said that red isn't a good color for a menu and I have to agree. But my theme, "Hiero" won't allow me to change it

It's tricky to meddle with CSS, just in case you have not given up hope, try this:
http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-change-my-menu-bar

Much appreciated Fred!

I was using 'Hiero' theme and found it very restricted as to what you can do with it....eventually I simply changed themes to one that was easier to work with....it's easy to do and all info on your current site is saved to the new one....Allan

Thank you Allen, yea that's probably what I'll do eventually. I've found that there is a lot of "restrictions" with this particular theme. And I know that I probably shouldn't be too concerned with all the "bells & whistle's" right now, I should be concentrating on "quality content" and other more important tasks, but I'm a little bull headed if ya know what I mean! I appreciate your input though!

Why is it that in first grade you are taking senior classes? You keep me tickled because you are always trying to do things that will come eventually. Maybe it is because you remind me too much of me. I think my very first question was on HTML, before I was even premium!

I am a senior dumb bunny! I'm 59 years old for Pete's sake! I need to hurry and make all this happen before I retire in three years! Just kidding honey! Someone suggested that I should change the menu color, apparently red is not too appealing. And I tried to change it when I first started building my site but I gave up because I needed to take care of more important tasks. But I not having much luck again so I think I'll move on and try again when I have a little more knowledge on the subject. But I appreciate your concern!

Hi again. These lines should be correct.

from line #407 in style.css:

#main-navigation li.sfHover li a:hover {
background: #eb2121;
}

And probably here too:

from line #394in style.css:

#main-navigation li.current_page_ancestor > a {
color: #fff;
background: #ff2828;
}

You have two reds: The 'hover' one it's a bit stronger.

Try to change these colours and check there results. Don't forget to hard reload the page in between (CTRL-F5) since the style css file is usually cashed.

I appreciate it, I tried changing the color and then save from the save button at the bottom but it didn't change, And I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with, "Don't forget to hard reload the page in between (CTRL-F5) since the style css file is usually cashed." What exactly does that mean? Thanks again!

CTRL-F5 means that you should reload the page by pressing simultaneously CTRL and F5 keys. That is if you are using Windows browser. Or clear the browser cache some way.

I tried this but still didn't change anything!

Hi. I think it is here, from line #384 in style.css:

#main-navigation li li a {
color: #ffabab;
}

Thanks man, I never have edited the code before so I'm learning, what do you mean by "line #384" There are no line numbers that I can find!

I am usually editing style-sheets locally (on your computer) and then upload them to the server via ftp. You can use any text editor you like / prefer. There you are usually able to see the line numbers.

If you are using editing built-in into Wordpress then use your browser's search. An example:

- you wan't to replace the colour here:
#main-navigation li.sfHover li a:hover {
background: #eb2121;
}

- search for #eb2121 by clicking into text edit area, pressing CTRl-F, entering background: #eb2121 and then pressing ENTER

- if found check if the lines loo like the ones I suppose that they are right

- change the RGB for the colour to your liking

- save the changes

- reload the site in the separate window to check if the change succeeded and if the colour is OK.

Hope it helps.

Do you have an "Appearance" tab in your menu on the right of your dashboard?

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you Bill, been busy trying to fix this! And, no, I do not have an appearance tab. I've been trying to change the HTML code in the editor but not having much luck. But I appreciate your reply buddy! Need to study a bit more! Thanks!
