Navbar CSS help: Child pages overlapping parent

Recommended Posts

I would like to add some padding between the bottom of a parent menu item and its associated child menu items. For example, upon visiting my staging site http://danielfinncouk.zippysites.com/, when hovering your mouse over the ABOUT section in the main navbar, the associated child menu items overlap the ABOUT tab. I would like to remove this overlapping and instead make the menu items flush against each other. Could someone help me with some CSS?

Do you have any other custom CSS (any at all)? It may cause a CSS conflict. If not, you'll need to increase the top margin of the "About" submenu so that it gets pushed down (about 7 or 8 pixels). To find the right CSS selector for that submenu, you'll need to use Firebug (or Chrome Development tools). To learn how to use Firebug for CSS customizations, please read and follow these instructions: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS. The CSS selector is used to select the page element you want to change (in this case, your submenu). For help with the margin attribute (which needs to be tweaked to make the adjustment on your menu), please see this: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_margin-top.asp


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

This is the custom CSS I have added regarding the navbar. Are there any obvious conflicts in the code?

	/* ==== MAIN NAV ==== */
	#menu-nav a {
	    font-size: 18px;
	    color: #252727;
	    background-color: #ffffff;
	    border: 4px solid white;
	}
	
	#menu-nav a:hover {
	    color: #ffffff;
	    border: 4px solid white;
	    background-color: #252727;

The 4px solid white part of the child menu items is covering the parent. Additionally, whatever you wrote for the parent menu items has insufficient padding- or margin-bottom to accommodate that border, moving it down by a corresponding 4px. If the border were transparent, then it would allow the parent to show through, but the better move is to pad or margin the child elements down by 4px.

Thanks I have altered my code so now it reads:

	/* ==== MAIN NAV ==== */
	#menu-nav a {
	    font-size: 18px;
	    color: #252727;
	    background-color: #ffffff;
	}
	
	#menu-nav a:hover {
	    color: #ffffff;
	    background-color: #252727;
	]
	
What I would like to do is alter the border associated with solely the child items of a specific parent menu item in the nav bar. I have used firebug to inspect the menu item and have found it to have this anchor.
	class="page_item page-item-1857"
	

I hav noticed that any alteration of this class changes the parent item and its child items. How do you isolate the parent or the child? class="page_item page-item-1857"

RESOLVED

	#menu-nav li.page-item-1857 .children {
	    margin-top: 8px;
	}

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
