I created a SharePoint Foundation site and want to brand the top link bar.

How do I do that?

Depending on what you want to do, much if not all of this can be accomplished through CSS.

Here are some postings from Erik Swenson's SharePoint Branding and Design blog on how to get started:

SharePoint 2010 Base CSS Classes

Navigation Drop Down Styles


I wrote a "How To" for EUSP - hope it helps: Adding-a-touch-of-Glamour-Part-Two-The-Menu - it shows the classes you change to style the Top navigation bar.

  • "Louise van der Bijl" please check your "HOW TO" page on the branding, since there's a important question you never replied to and its useless until resolved thank you all , great resources

I think you'll get a lot of brandinding questions in proccess of Sharepoint customization. If so, it will be very helpfull to read this book: Professional SharePoint 2010 Branding and User Interface Design
