CSS: Why are my submenu options not 100% wide?

Posted on 2016-10-20

OK I have been looking at this for long enough.

Please see this fiddle at <768px wide.  Click Menu, then click About us+, and you should see the issue.  The underlying ul, or li, or a, is not 100% wide and I can't see how to fix it, everything seems set to 100% when i inspect the elements.

Look at this style
Line 153
nav > ul > li:hover > ul {
  display: block;
  width: 11.1111%; /* <== LOOK */

Open in new window

That is what is causing your problem
