Hello

I'm having a problem matching an existing menu from a site that I need to recreate for an upgrade.

My issue is with the main menu. It's inside a table and i can't change that.  

But I can't figure out how to make what is now a vertical menu to be horizontal.  I thought I seem to recall that I need to add something called "block" or inline???

So I ask your help.

In my next comment I'll post the url to the dev site:

Thanks!

Here's a screen capture of what the header menu should look like:

Yes, it's table.  But that's how it must stay.

...
}

Hi Cathal,
Works!

I moved the css to custom.css


Here's the code:

#menu ul
{
list-style-type:none;
margin:0;
padding:0;
overflow:hidden;
  display:inline
}

Open in new window


Do I need to keep overflow:hidden?   I guess so.... :)

Otherwise it's fixed!

Thanks!

Not doing any harm but you can get rid of it.

You might want to get rid of the padding in .bigContentDiv {...} line 374 as well, or at least zero out the left/right margin

Thanks for helping.  I also got rid of that extra padding.
