    Expanding Sub-Menus on Edugeek Joomla 1.5

    Hi guys,

    I have been searching for a good hour now and can't seem to find anything about how to expand the width of the sub menus in the edugeek joomla package. See the image below I need to either expand the menu so I can fit the whole text in or somehow expand the text space to allow all of it in.

    Any ideas? had a good root around in the suffix.css but can't seem to find anything.

    Thanks in advance

    Well I have done it...after some struggle and here is how

    You need to edit the suffix.css in the templates css folder on your site.

    To expand the drop down menu from the main menu for example "Parents' you need to edit the following;


    This will expand the drop down menu column allowing you to have longer headings for the menu items;
    #topmenu ul li ul {
    display:block;
    height:auto;
    width: 200px; changed from 'width: 16em;'
    position:absolute;
    z-index:99;
    left: -999em;
    color: #660000



    After this change it will throw the menu out of line with the main heading of each menu item so you need to adjust the following;

    #topmenu ul li ul ul {
    margin: -40px 0 0 width: 200px; changed from 'width: 16em;'



    Finally this may not be required by some people but I have a sub SUB menu coming off of one of the items in the Parents menu when I made these changes the menu was overlapping onto the sub menu so we need to reline that with the following;

    #topmenu ul li li {
    width:width: 200px; changed from 'width: 16em;'

    sorted
