Hi!
I am new at the forum and not too experienced in website development. So I am very excited about site Sculptor. I have a question, when I tried the design of Personal, Marketing, in the site, I find many times difficulties to click on the sub-menu. In another word, when I put my mouse over an item in the navigation bar and I get the listing but as I try to select an item in that listing, as I move the mouse down, the listing disappears and I am not able to click.

Any feedback? Thanks for your help!

Which browser are you using or is this on all browsers? Can you give me the url of a page that has this issue so I can take a look at it?

Hi Jimmy:

The browser I'm using Internet Explorer. The URL is: index.html

The thing is that, if the cursor is on say About Me or on Interests and you bring it down to Biography, the whole drop down disappears. Yet, oddly enough it doesn't happen all the time. Sometime it works well, and at other time it does this disappearance. Then it becomes hard to catch that submenu option. But again, it's not all the time.

Hi Serge & Jimmy,

If I create the same site (personal marketing), I get the same problem (in IE7). It seems to be caused by a rogue 2px padding 'gap' in the css.

One way I overcome this is to change the <!--[if lte IE 6]> conditional statement in the head tags from IE6 to IE7:

<!--[if lte IE 7]>

However, this would need changing in every page you have created. A quicker way would be to change the rule for ul#cssmw_home ul.level-1 (Lines 91 - 95 of the menu.css stylesheet (CSSMenuWriter/cssmw_home/menu.css):

At line 93, remove the 2px top padding:

ul#cssmw_home ul.level-1 {
left: 0px;
padding: 2px 0 0 0; /* change to: padding: 0 0 0 0; */
top: 100%;
}

You would need to do the same for CSSMenuWriter/cssmw_content/menu.css if you have content pages created too.

So this seems to be a 'fault' that will be repeated every time this template is used. I don't know why the 2px padding has been specified, as it is not even aesthetically pleasing. The design preset should be renamed 'Mind the Gap'.
