Using css to move a class to the left of its current position

Hi

I'm trying to move a menu to the left, and I think what I am missing in my css are the proper positioning/addition of the "Class" dots ".".

Here's a shortened URL to the site:

Link to page with menu

The menu is on the upper right and is controlled by the following in the html:

<ul class menu nav-pills _topMainRowbyMenu hidden-phone">

Open in new window


Here's the css I have so far, and it is not affecting anything at all:

ul.menu nav-pills _topMainRowbyMenu hidden-phone {
margin-left: -100px;
}

Open in new window


What mods do I have to make to the above to get it to work -- that is, move the top right menu a bit to the left.

Thanks

Rowby

Change this on line 203 of rt_leviathan-custom.css
ul.menu.nav-pills._topMainRowbyMenu {
  margin-left: 100px;
}

Open in new window

The reason your code does not work is you left out the .'s this should also work

ul.menu nav-pills._topMainRowbyMenu.hidden-phone {
margin-left: -100px;
}

Although you might find using a negative margin moves the box 300px to the left of where it is now - because a margin is already defined on the style in my earlier post.

Unless there is a reason not to change this style then my earlier post is the correct solution.
