I am building a site with mostly pages and without a header. I created a topbar into which I placed an image.
I want a left side bar with a gray background which will hold my navigation menu. I have watched all the you tube videos I can find but can’t figure it out.
Do I create a sidebar element or is there a setting I am missing? When I go into the Global Colors, I don’t see an option to colorize the sidebar. See the link below.March 6, 2022 at 12:14 pm #2144597LeoStaffCustomer Support
Any chance you can link us to the page in question?

The link won’t allow me to type into it. It’s a png file. How can I email you the link to use to see it local on my computer? Sorry. I figured it out.March 6, 2022 at 1:30 pm #2144638Linda

No. I’m just learning. Should it be primary navigation? Is that why I don’t see Left Sidebar in Global Colors or in the layout?March 6, 2022 at 2:11 pm #2144663LeoStaffCustomer Support
If that’s the main navigation for your site then I’d go with primary navigation first.
Once that’s done, you can change the color by changing the Primary Navigation Colors in the customizer:

Ok I set it to Left Sidebar. I still don’t see Left Sidebar under Global Colours. How do I change the background colour of the sidebar?March 6, 2022 at 2:41 pm #2144685LeoStaffCustomer Support
Is the primary navigation location set to the left sidebar in the customizer?

Yes. I still don’t see Left Sidebar under Global Colours. How do I change the background colour of the sidebar?March 6, 2022 at 3:05 pm #2144708LeoStaffCustomer SupportMarch 6, 2022 at 3:11 pm #2144710Linda
I tried that but it only changes the colour of the navigation background. I want the whole sidebar to be a gray colour.
