Sub-menu offset

Where is the sub-menu offset adjusted? I've changes the item widths but the sub-menus overlap? I've narrowed the first sub menu but I'd prefer to offset the second sub-menu and keep the first one wider.

Thanks

On this page indexNEW.php go to About Us and click on Directors, I have edited the first sub-menu in the menu.css so that it doesn't overlap he second. I would have preferred the second to be offset by the full default width.

I had changed the width: of the top level to fill the full 960 width of the page. Was there a way to set the item width to automatically fill the page width?

Thanks

are you making the width changes in the menu writer wizard?

If you change the width in the menu writer wizard, it should also change the offset of the submenu items.

When setting a width for the main level items, you should set a width in pixels. you have 6 menu items on the top level, so use 160 for the menu item width (960 / 6 = 160) to fill the full 960px width of the page.

Hi Jason,

I'm running into the same problem. The site is http://www.totalskinandbodyspa.com/preview/

The menu is set in the CSS Menu Writer: Edit Menu Theme as:

top level 120 px wide
1st level 160 px wide
3rd level 180 px wide

As you can see, when you hover over the menu, the drop down shrinks to smaller than what I have it set to and nothing I have done seems to work.

Any advice is appreciated.

Robin

in the CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.css file change:

ul#cssmw ul.level-2 {
left: 112px;
margin: 0;
}



to:

ul#cssmw ul.level-2 {
left: 172px;
margin: 0;
}
