I'm inserting a Nav not Navbar onto my website. I am having a hard time locating how to make changes to the default color theme for the nav. So far, I've figured out the following.

.container .row .nav-container can control the background color.
.navbar-default can color the color for when you hover over the link.

I haven't figure out what I need to change to modify the text color of the links.

Thank you,

Hello Charles,
You need to have at least basic knowledge in CSS in order to change such properties in the bootstrap 3 navigation.
Changes must be stored in a separate custom css file, included after the bootstrap 3 css files on your page.

It is really easy to find the rule you need to change, by using your broswer dev tools (inspector). For example to change the default color of the links in the navbar, you need to add this to your custom css file:

.navbar-default .navbar-nav > li > a {
color: ;

active link:
.navbar-default .navbar-nav > .active > a, .navbar-default .navbar-nav > .active > a:hover, .navbar-default .navbar-nav > .active > a:focus {
color: ;
background-color: ;
