    Odd Boxes at the side of the menu

    Managed to get this joomla drop down menu working after a weeks work, but now have a weird box at the side of every menu (see image)

    Odd Boxes at the side of the menu-menu.bmp

    and i can't for the life of me manage to get rid of them. Any Ideas?

    The following is the code for the menu.

    Code:
    /*** ESSENTIAL STYLES ***/
    .sf-menu, .sf-menu * {
    	margin:			0;
    	padding:		0;
    	list-style:		none;
    }
    .sf-menu {
    	line-height:	1.0;
    }
    .sf-menu ul {
    	position:		absolute;
    	top:			-999em;
    	width:			10em; /* left offset of submenus need to match (see below) */
    }
    .sf-menu ul li {
    	width:			100%;
    }
    .sf-menu li:hover {
    	visibility:		inherit; /* fixes IE7 'sticky bug' */
    }
    .sf-menu li {
    	float:			left;
    	position:		relative;
    }
    .sf-menu a {
    	display:		block;
    	position:		relative;
    }
    .sf-menu li:hover ul,
    .sf-menu li.sfHover ul {
    	left:			0;
    	top:			2.5em; /* match top ul list item height */
    	z-index:		90;
    }
    ul.sf-menu li:hover li ul,
    ul.sf-menu li.sfHover li ul {
    	top:			-999em;
    }
    ul.sf-menu li li:hover ul,
    ul.sf-menu li li.sfHover ul {
    	left:			50em; /* match ul width */
    	top:			0;
    }
    ul.sf-menu li li:hover li ul,
    ul.sf-menu li li.sfHover li ul {
    	top:			-999em;
    }
    ul.sf-menu li li li:hover ul,
    ul.sf-menu li li li.sfHover ul {
    	left:			10em; /* match ul width */
    	top:			0;
    }

    I would imagine it is the background image missing. Check the images arrows-ffffff.png and shadow.png are in the images folder.

    In the same folder as each other or as the CSS?

    There bullet points inherited from somewhere else (sorry for not being able to post before, but for some reason the image wouldn't download)

    Okay without seeing your code I can't say that this will work but it should be the prority when the browser reads the css. The more specific the refrence to the item, then the higher the prority.

    .sf-menu ul li {
    list-style: none;
    }

    would preferably like to see the actual html up until the menu...

    but you can try this...
    in IE 8 press F12, then click the "select element by click" icon (mouse pointer).

    Click the menu item with the odd image. It should make it clear where it is being inherited from.

    from there you can remove the reference from the inherited style or you can make a style rule that will take precident by being more specfic and referencing containers from further down the tree.
