mega menu text spacing

Post by George »

Mega Menu is on my site http://www.bathrooms-kitchens.net
Top level text has wide spacing before and after text. This limits amount of sections showing without making a second line.
Is it possible to decrease spacing or to allow menu to change size to fit extra sections without making second line.
The other thing I notice is that if text size is increased in internet explorer > View > Text size I lose the end link, (drops down to second line)
Thanks in advance
Regards George

You seem to be using the "configurable" theme for this menu and have customised the CSS. The bit that's affecting the spacing is:

Code: Select all

ul#topnav li a {
	display:block; font-size:1.4em; padding:0 29px; border-right:solid #fff 1px;
   line-height:2.6em; color:#fff; text-decoration:none;
}
And the relevant bit is padding:0 29px; where you've set a left and right padding of 29 pixels (and a top / bottom padding of 0). Go to Design / Library / Layouts / Multi Column Menu / configurable, locate and reduce that 29.

That looks like an unaltered version of the original supplied layout. It doesn't correlate with what's appearing on your live pages so it's very likely that someone has made other design changes.

Have a look at Settings / Site Options / Layout / Multi Column Menu / Menu Theme and note down what's set there. That's the layout to look in.
