I used to be able to edit the font size and colour in the navigation menu. When I logged on recently my menu fonts have defaulted to a smaller size. I tried editing the menu again and put in different sizes but it makes no difference. Has something changed? It used to be fine.

Hello John

How did you edit the font size and colour of your navigation menu before? It has only been possible to do that by editing the Site CSS. Now that we've launched the Style Designer, it is possible to easily edit those settings for your Style without coding. Have you maybe enabled the Style Designer? This can override custom CSS you may have added.

I'd recommend that you remove your custom code referring to font size and colour and enable the Style Designer to make your adjustments from there where they are always under your control. You can find the Style Designer under the Page and Style > Style Settings tab.

Hi Stefan,
I edited before as the attached image. I thought the style designer cannot alter fonts in navigation but only in the banner. Am I missing something? Hope you can help.

Hello John

I'm afraid that the Page Manager is not designed for such changes, and I'd recommend not to use it for that purpose as it can break your pages and cause other problems or unwanted effects.

Now that the Style Designer is out, you will no longer need to use workarounds like the Page Manager to customize the font of your Style. Style Designer allows you to customize even more than just the menu link properties. Please remove the codes from the pages in the Page Manager and apply your changes via the Style Designer.

If you have any questions on how to use it or to achieve something specific, please let me know.

Thanks for that Stefan. I can now see how to edit the fonts in the menu links using style editor. Is there a way of changing the size and colour of them as well?
