Menu keeps wrapping to two lines

6 posts in this topic


My menu keeps wrapping into two lines in Firefox, even though I have made the search box quite small.

Tried to change the font and also letter spacing for the secondary font in page line settings but they stay the same.

What can I do and why isn't the font changing?

The site is

ThanX ! Greetings Kirsten

Hi Kirsten,


The reason for this is that the ul class has a set width, so all we need to do is increase that width to house all your menu items. So add the following to your custom CSS:


#site ul.main-nav {
width: 700px;
Also, I have set it so that there should be enough room for both your search bar and navigation links, so you can remove the styling you have added to reduce the search fields width.

hey guys i am also having an issue with my navigation not fitting. i added that CSS to  (PlatformBase -> Style.css that the right place). And still wraps my menu.


How can I shrink the search box to leave more space for the nav items?


I have tried editing the CSS (

PlatformPro: Stylesheet (style.css)



I shrunk   .searchform .searchfield{

and i shrunk .searchform {


but neither seemed to do the trip and allow my menu to go back to one line.


FYI, this all started happening after I added the leaderboard banner to my header. I did not modify my navigation at all when the double line started occuring.


Thanks so much guys for your awesome support,

Hi there,


Looking at your site its the actual nav width which needs to be adjusted slightly to get everything to appear on one row. If you adjust the figure using css to around 745px like in the screenshot below you should find everything moves back onto one line. I've highlighted the css causing this in the text editor for you.

      Site :
      I need to change the second menu items on hover to different colors.
      i.e factual needs to be blue on hover, fiction red on hover, etc. etc.
      then on the sub menu of factual, all need to hover blue with the main menu factual item staying as blue,
      and the sub menu of fiction needs to hover red with fiction item staying as red.
      etc. etc.
      For the life of me I cannot figure it out.
    • Menu won't update
      By dreja+
      I updated my English menu on this site and it worked without issue. However, when I tried to do the same with the French menu, it goes to a 404 page. I'm using an older version of Pagelines on this site as well as WPML for translations. 
      Does anyone have advice on what I can do?
    • More than 2 Mobile Menus
      By mistrmint+
      Is it possible to include more than 2 mobile menu's on the site?
      I am using 4 menu's but in mobile only the first 2 are clickable.
      Menu 4 is on a standalone page. If I click the menu on this page, the primary 2 menu's appear.
      i.e. Menu 4 is not clickable.

      SplashUp - with no menu selected - displays no menu on desktop, as expected, but a menu appears when you reduce the size of the screen.
    • Change NavBar Menu alignment and font size
      By saur0+
      Hi, I have managed to change the size of the navbar logo to 75px, but I now want to change the size of the font on the menu (20px) and align the menu vertically to the bottom (so it is in line with the bottom of the logo image). I've been playing around with the CSS but can't seem to get it right, if anyone could give me some pointers it would be much appreciated.
