I have a site here:

And I am trying to find in the css where I can change the background color of the highlighted menu (in this example the HOME)?

Any help is appreciated.

In color.css

.sf-menu > li:hover, .sf-menu > li.current-menu-item , .sf-menu > li.current_page_item , .sf-menu > li.current-menu-ancestor , .sf-menu > li.current-menu-parent , .sf-menu > li.current_page_ancestor , .sf-menu > li.current_page_parent {
	background:#f16d3c;
	-moz-box-shadow:inset 0px 0px 40px 10px rgba(218, 98, 54, 0.75);
	-webkit-box-shadow:inset 0px 0px 40px 10px rgba(218, 98, 54, 0.75);
	box-shadow:inset 0px 0px 40px 10px rgba(218, 98, 54, 0.75);
	}

Open in new window


and on the page inside of the style tags
	.sf-menu > li:hover, .sf-menu > li.current-menu-item , .sf-menu > li.current_page_item , .sf-menu > li.current-menu-ancestor , .sf-menu > li.current-menu-parent , .sf-menu > li.current_page_ancestor , .sf-menu > li.current_page_parent, .sf-menu li li:hover, .sf-menu li li.current{background-color:#011161}

I changed it in color.css but it is still not right.

There is some sort of gradient in the menu and I'm wanting a solid color.

The sub navigation also has the same styles being applied.  Also found in color.css

/* dropdown */
.sf-menu li li{ border-bottom:1px solid #fff}
.sf-menu li li a{color:#4a4a4a;}
.sf-menu li li:hover, .sf-menu li li.current{
	background:#f16d3c;
	-moz-box-shadow:inset 0px 0px 40px 10px rgba(218, 98, 54, 0.75);
	-webkit-box-shadow:inset 0px 0px 40px 10px rgba(218, 98, 54, 0.75);
	box-shadow:inset 0px 0px 40px 10px rgba(218, 98, 54, 0.75);
	color:#fff;
	}

The "gradient" is the box-shadow being applied.  Remove those declarations and you will be left with the solid color.

	-moz-box-shadow:inset 0px 0px 40px 10px rgba(218, 98, 54, 0.75);
	-webkit-box-shadow:inset 0px 0px 40px 10px rgba(218, 98, 54, 0.75);
	box-shadow:inset 0px 0px 40px 10px rgba(218, 98, 54, 0.75);
	color:#fff;

I changed all references to f16d3c to 011161.

It still has the gradient.

You have colors set for the nav in colors.css on line 39 and 80 and then again on the page.  

If you are trying to modify a theme, it is best to create a custom css that is below the theme's css and make your adjustments there.  Avoid adding styles to the page header otherwise you have to update each page if the style is meant for every page.
