Changing the colour of my website header?

I wonder if anyone could help, I'm sure it's a basic question but I can't work it out for the life of me. I'm using a standard default template, as I don't have any programming skills. It's all perfect except, I wish to change the colour of the main header on the website. Not the banner, which I understand you can change the image/colour of. And not the background image, which I also understand you can change the colour/image of. This is the main part of the webpage above the banner?

I have worked out style editor and can only seem to change the fonts/colours of the text within the various sub categories....

Hi Kellie,

The Style Designer gives you access to customize the font types on your page. I think the tricky part here is figuring out specifically which text you are referring to. Can you share a screenshot of your style pointing to the text you want to change so we can tell you what it is referred to in the Style Designer?

Hi Laura, many thanks for your reply. It's the header colour itself not the font colour. It seems to allow you to change the colour of this in the mobile formatting just not the normal website version?

Hello Kellie,

The problem here is the definition. If you can take a screen shot of your page as Laura indicated, and indicate the aspect you wish to manipulate, then we're all on the same page. For instructions on how to do this: Taking a screen shot

Header in computer terms is specific code that goes before the detailed code. Heading of a yola built site is the text heading of your page often but not always in the banner.

Are you referring to the background behind the text of the box called the heading in the site builder?
