Drop Downs Not Working After Changing Widths

I am trying to modify the width of individual buttons so that all of my tabs will fit, but when I do I have found that the drop downs I have set up through the widget do not appear. Is there any way to make this work?

Also, I am building a database that I am organizing through a simple productcategoryID column. It is a small, set number of categories and I wanted to set up a non-dynamic link to the results page of only that category. What would be the easiest code to accomplish this? I am very new to these tools and MySQL as a whole.

I'll need a link where i can see the problem in order to troubleshoot.


for the category links, use a URL variable in the link, for example:

categories.php?category=6


then on the category page, create a recordset that filters the category column on the category URL Variable.

see the Database starter kit tutorial for more details:

This is just the unfinished template, but you can see the problem. There should be drop downs on both Women's and Men's. I was testing to make sure they appeared the graphic when I noticed the did not appear at all...

looking at the source code:

<ul class="level-0" id="cssmw1">
<li style="margin-left:18px"><a href="#" style="width:70px;">Women's</a></li>
<li><a href="#" style="width:70px;">Men's</a></li>
<li><a href="#" style="width:70px;">Queen's</a></li>
<li><a href="#" style="width:60px;">Zum</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Accessories</a></li>
<li><a href="#" style="width:70px;">Shoes</a></li>
<li><a href="#" style="width:140px;">Southern Prep</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Our Story</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Gift Cards</a></li>
</ul>




there are no submenus on either the mens or women's menu items.

I noticed that. I just thought that it may have put them somewhere else. This is the structure using the extension.

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

looks like you hand edited the menu to add the widths, when you hand edited the menu, you must have accidentally removed the sub menus.

regenerate the menu using the wizard to recreate the submenus to have them added back
