Hello,

Cek this navigation bootstrap page:

http://www.innovation.web.id/bootstrap/5_5_6_navbar_inverted.html

I wonder how to change the color of the menu bar?

Is there any way to do that?

Change the color of .navbar-inverse

I try this. No color changes.

custom.css

.navbar-inverse { color: #655700; }

bootstrap-responsive.css

.navbar-inverse { color: #655700; }
  .navbar-inverse .nav-collapse .nav > li > a,
  .navbar-inverse .nav-collapse .dropdown-menu a {
    /* color: #999999; */
    color: #655700;
  }
  .navbar-inverse .nav-collapse .nav > li > a:hover,
  .navbar-inverse .nav-collapse .nav > li > a:focus,
  .navbar-inverse .nav-collapse .dropdown-menu a:hover,
  .navbar-inverse .nav-collapse .dropdown-menu a:focus {
    background-color: #655700;
  }

Change the background-image property of .navbar-inverse .navbar-inner

.navbar-inverse .navbar-inner{
background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom,#655700,#655700);
}

Hope this helps!

bootstrap.min.css, line 9: .navbar-inverse .navbar-inner is the one to change.

Or a quick fix would be to overwrite it with this:

.navbar-inverse .navbar-inner {
    background:#00ccff !important;
}

I try that. and still remains the same.

You put the two corrections at the same time. Wrong.

Try my suggestion separetly and then try mattster's.

One should work.

ok, I successfully change the color of the navigation bar.

What about changing the height of the navigation bar button?

How to do so?
