    Sub menu width problems

    Has anyone been able to fix the submenu?

    It produces a fixed width so if you have a short name you have alot of white space to the right of it before it displays the submenu.

    Is there any way to set the menu to auto resize the width?

    Here are some images.




    Now if you look at the second one you will see the problem once i move mouse on to display the sub menu.

    Because of the fixed width in the menu items there is alot of white space to the right and then it displays the submenu too high aswell as having the white space. Because of these two problems it looks a bit of a mess but i cannot see a way of editing the moo menu to fix this.





    Hope this helps.

    does it do the same for all menus..... Also try doing what i do when i can't find the class...

    screenshot the page, put into fireworks and find out the hex code of the bit your looking for (I'd use that orange side).

    Then set up dreamweaver to search the entire site (you might have to set it up as the local site) for that hex code.... It usually pops up somewhere.

    A collegue of mine managed to change his (Ashlawn School - DofE) color of the drop down, and I taught him that CSS over an hour so I'd assume its in your main templates css folder...

    Will ask him when I see him (I don't use the new edugeek package..)

    edit *Joomla.css & template.css in the css folder of the template your using. From a quick look convention would say its in either of them...

    I found alot of moo menu settings in the suffix.css file but im not sure which section deals with the width of the sub menus and the position.

    Ok

    I think I have fixed the alignment of the submenu showing too high.

    On line 94 - 95 i changed the setting to the following

    #topmenu ul li ul ul {
    margin: -20px 0 0 16em;

    It now displays like so.




    But I sill cannot find the setting to change the submenu width from a static width to auto.
