Preventing Menu from moving down when click on item

Hello!

This should be a simple one. But I an unable to use firebug to troubleshoot it on my own.

In my next question I will post a link to the page.

When you click an item on the top menu, such as "ABOUT", the entire menu goes down until you release the mouse.

The same thing happens on the submenu. So I guess there's some global css issue going on with padding or margins.

I assume a click on a menu item is an ACTIVE link???  Or am I assuming wrong.

Anyway, look for my link in my next comment.

Thanks

custom.css line 687

div#OurGalaxiesHASOMMobile h3 h1, a:active, div.custom._GalaxiesEtc, YourDirectionsHASOMDesktop h1 a:hover {
    font-size: 32px;
    font-weight: 100;
    text-transform: capitalize;
}


The font size and/or font-weight is forcing the drop

Thanks, Gary123,

I zapped that entire section of css and that helped quite a bit.  (it was left over css that I didn't need.  

Just a tiny pixel or two drop down left.  And I think it's also affecting the dropdowns, when you click on them.

Almost there!!

This is still creating the shift:

custom.css - line 347

div.moduletable._GalaxiesEtc, p a:link, a:visited, a:active {
    font-size: 18px;
}


You probably want to remove the a:visited as well

Thanks,  ChrisStanyon,

That fixed it.  I'll keep this question open just in case other related "shifts" pop up. But I think it's okay now.

Hi

THere are 4 "departments" on this site and each is a different template.

Two of the departments are ok so far as menu shifting.

I tried to fix the following using the same style modifications, but the main menu shifts down a couple of pixels, as does the drop down menu.

I have tried firebug but even when  clicking the down arrow for active hover, I keep missing the issue ! :)

Hopefully fixing this second one will help me fix the 3rd "department" on my own !!

Redirect to "Musicology" site.
Thanks

It's exactly the same issue:

custom.css - line 516

div.moduletable._GalaxiesEtc, p a:link, a:visited, a:active {
    font-size: 18px;
}

Hi Gary and Chris,

The fix worked.  Sorry for the delay.  I am going to try to award the points without giving a "Best Solution".  But I don't think EE will let me do that.  You equally gave best solutions.  So let's see what happens.
