menu styling question

  • Creator

    Hello
    I purchased the Akita theme and have been very happy with it so far. My only issue is that I would like to be able to align the buttons in the menu bar so that they completely fill it and get rid of the little extra bit that is currently on the right hand side of the menu (www.georgesmillcheese.com). I have been trying to figure it out with firebug but can’t. Is there a simple way to do this?

    Thanks very much
    Molly

    Hello,

    Really the only thing I can think of to do would be to set a fixed width for each buttons, taking into account how manu there are (possibly as a percentage so the site remains responsive). But this would not really fit in with the dynamic nature of a WordPress theme and the menu builder.

    Maybe you could target the list items opposed to the actual buttons and spread them out evenly. There are probably different approaches you could take.

    #access li { ... }

    Or maybe you could possibly just pop the divider off the last button?

    #access li:last-child { background-image: none; }

    ==========

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
