CSS (line height?) issue

I have this site:

There is a pretty ugly navigation menu at the top. If you mouse over "commercial" you will see that some of the child nav items break to a new line. It doesn't do that in the other parent navs . I can't figure out what bit of CSS is causing this for the life of me. Another set of eyes would be much appreciated.

I'm not sure what caused it in the first place, (I suspect it's an inherited float from someplace, but there are so many "!important" declarations complicating the inheritance I can't be sure).

You can "fix" it with this on the menu items actual anchor link (#maximenuck ul.maximenuck li.maximenuck a): [white-space: nowrap;] as long as you aren't worried about them EVER needing to wrap.

NOTE: "Property Managers Lounge" under "Commercial", and "Articles of Interest" under "Community" are not getting the same hover styles that the rest of the menu gets either. Also, I HIGHLY recommend avoiding the use of !important declarations unless you literally have no choice! They seem generously sprinkled throughout your CSS, and that's a recipe for future maintenance problems. You don't want to find yourself having to add them "everywhere" simply because you can't track how they're being inherited.

Hi lvollmer,

you can add this line of code in your LAYOUT.CSS  file AT THE LAST...(Or in any custom.css file you have added for custom css & which loads last)

div#maximenuck ul.maximenuck li ul.maximenuck2 li.maximenuck {
    width: 240px;
}

Open in new window


IDEALLY you should edit your maximenuck.php file and add the width value.... but I guess the above solution will solve your problem if you are not comfortable dabbling with plugin files.

let me know the outcome,
Prasadh
