I've been futzing around with this for over an hour and I can't imagine what the problem is.
It's gotta be something bonehead that I'm doing.
When you hover over any menu item that has a drop down, the background for the anchors is transparent. This didn't used to be that way. I think the Wordpress menu update a while back broke it.
Anyway, no matter what I try I can't get the background to show up, nor the hover.
Thanks so much!
