I'm very new to SharePoint, so I need y'alls' help. I am desperately trying to change the color of the selected navigation in the Quick Launch. Right now, it is a baby-blueish kinda' color. No problem with this, but it is incredibly close to the color I have selected for the Light 1 theme color (for a Team Site). I believe I have isolated its location to the CSS .ms-quickLaunchheader class, specifically to the background-image property of "url('/_layouts/images/quickLaunchHeader.gif')", which repeats-x. I wish to make it a goldish color with the same kind of gradient feature, which leads me into two questions:
if I am going to make a similar quicklaunchheader.gif file (except gold) and load it into the same directory as the original, and point the CSS to the new file, will this be a solution? If so, I am unable to actually find said /_layout folder in the Designer or file structure. Any idea where to find it?
if I can simply change it through a background-color option or color option in its CSS property, of course this would be much easier. Any idea if there is a property to do this?
The image is specifically the feature I am describing; it is the current location of "page one" in the Quick Launch. Sorry for the link, but can't post image because new :)
Thank you for your time.
