  1. Thanks for the info! I am trying to change the font-family in the menu bar and it works on the home page but if I click through to other pages it doesn’t work. Why do you think that is happening?

    1. I thought I had? I have added it the stylesheet link into my , On the full-width-page.php it says get_header(); ?> so shouldn’t that still work? The folder is dropped into my root folder and for good measure I dropped it in the responsive file also. But alas, still no joy.

        Great!! This worked, thanks a ton buddy. Another help –
        (1) I want to change the background colour of my header menu (the one with sample page etc.) and the colour of its font too. I have already tried the code that you have suggested somewhere but it never worked. Can you tell me how to do that?
        (2) How to reduce the gap between the site name and the description line a little bit?

        Thanks.

      2. Hi Aug
        to change the Menu background color of Theme Responsive try this

        .menu {
        background-color: red !important;
        background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(center top , red, darkred) !important;
        }

        To Reduce the gap/space between the Site Title and Site Description try this

        .site-description {
        margin-top: 0 !important;
        }

        .site-name {
        line-height: 49px !important;
        }

        Regards

  3. Hi Om,

    The code to reduce the gap worked, but the code for background color did not work. What else can we do to change the menu background color and the menu font color?

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Thanks.

      1. Hi,

        I did use the following code which you mentioned above –

        .menu {
        background-color: red !important;
        background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(center top , red, darkred) !important;
        }

        It did not reflect any changes??

      1. Hi om,
        Ya, your code for post title worked, but how to change the font size of sub headings in posts/pages.

        Here is the code that I used for customizing the header menu –

        .menu {
        background-color: #585858;
        background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, from(#585858), to(#3d3d3d));

        background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #585858, #3d3d3d);
        background-image: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #585858, #3d3d3d);
        background-image: -o-linear-gradient(top, #585858, #3d3d3d);
        background-image: linear-gradient(top, #585858, #3d3d3d);
        clear: both;
        filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#585858, endColorstr=#3d3d3d);
        margin: 0 auto;

  7. Hello my friend, please could you help me quickly…I’m trying to remove the space where the title text usually appears in Responsive theme.

      1. Thanks so much Om for the quick and precise reply, really appreciate it. I couldn’t get it to work – maybe my wordpress dashboard is badly setup? In the Insignia wordpress dashboard I clicked “appearance” / “theme options” then “CSS styles” and in the Custom CSS styles box I pasted in your text above. Then I clicked blue “save options” box. Refreshed the Insignia homepage and nothing changed at all. Please give me some advice… thanks))

      2. Hi again Om,
        wow that’s bizarre, do you think it’s a problem with my browser? I’ve looked at the Insignia homepage with both Firefox 47.0.2 and Chrome 54.0.2840 and refreshed both and homepage still shows a 2cm whitespace gap below the menu bar and above the slides. I need that gap to be about 2mm. How big is the gap on your browser? (thanks again for the help!!)

      3. thanks for the screenshot Om, actually the page I’m editing is the homepage and not the “about us” page. But the problem is pretty similar on both those pages. That gap is unacceptably large and it’s so frustrating that I can’t remove it. When I used to make sites in dreamweaver it was a click of a button to remove such a gap. But WordPress makes it incredibly complicated. I suppose there’s no way it can be don then?((

      4. yes it seems ok now,…I’ve semi-fixed the problem with some code I found somewhere:
        #content-full {
        margin-top: 1px;
        }
        this has halved the white space, so it’s an acceptable amount now. Though I’m still trying to find a way of changing the other margin to remove the white space completely, but that’s low priority now. Also this fixed only the homepage, other pages still showing big white space. Thanks so much for your time Om!
