Hi,

I cant the whole link in a list to be click able. When I hover over the writing over a link the link is able to be clicked. If I hover over the background of the link without writing it isnt clickable.

How do I enable all of the link and background of the link to be clickable?

*{
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
}

/* FOR ANYTHING GREATER THAN MOBILE RESOLUTION */
@media screen and (min-width: 480px) {

   
    #nav-status {
        display: none;    
    }

    ul#mynav {
        width: 100%;    
        min-height: 25px;
        color:#fff;
        background:red;
        overflow: visible;
    }

    ul#mynav li {
        color:#000;
        border-right: 1px solid #333;
        width: 96px;
        height: 21px;
        padding:2px;
        display: block;
        float: left;
        position: relative; 
        background:red;   
    }

    ul#mynav li:last-child {
        border-right: none;
    }

     ul#mynav li ul {
        display: none;
        width: 100px;
       position: absolute; 
        top: 25px; 
        left: -25px;
        overflow: hidden;
    }
	
	ul#mynav a {
		width: 100px;
		  color:#fff;
        background:#666;
       
	}
	
	ul#mynav a:hover {
		color:white;
		
	}
	
	ul#mynav  li:hover{
		color:white;
		background:yellow;
	}

    ul#mynav li:hover ul {
        display: block;  
	
    }
    .more{
        display:none;
    }
}

$(document).ready(function(){


$("#nav-status").click(function(e) {
    e.preventDefault();
    $('#mynav').toggle();
});
 $('ul> li').click(function() {
        $(this).children("ul").toggle();
    });

});
</script>

<div id="wrapper">

<div class="container-fluid">
   
    <div class="row-fluid">

        <a href="#">Item 5 <span class="more">></span></a>
        <ul>

The live area for the click is the space occupied by the link. If you want the image to be clickable, then use an image link instead of a background image.

Sure.  Doing a gradient on an image should give you what you need.

What I would do is add
display: block;

Open in new window

to the css for
ul#mynav a

Open in new window

you should be able to add the gradient to it as well (instead of background color).

Yes, but the <a> within it is displayed inline by default.
