[resolved] Category dropdown menu in Oulipo theme (5 posts)

    I'm using the Oulipo theme on my blog. I recently switched from a WordPress.com blog at http://pencilandfork.wordpress.com/ to my own domain at http://pencilandfork.net/. Nearly everything works fine, but I'm using a dropdown menu for my categories, and the dropdown menu obscures the "Categories" header. This was not the case on my WordPress.com blog, as you can see if you compare them side by side. Also, the "Tags" header is partially obscured by the first tag in the tag cloud. Again, not the case with my old blog. I don't know what I'm doing wrong as I can't see anything different in the dashboard. Can anyone help?? Thanks.

    Themes on wordpress.com are often quite different in terms of looks & functionality compared to their freely downloadable counterparts.

    It looks to be a simple fix, either way though.

    If you go to your style.css file, you'll want to change this:

    #supplementary h3, h2.widgettitle {
    border-bottom:medium none;
    font-size:14px;
    font-variant:small-caps;
    margin:2em 0 -10px;
    }

    to this:

    #supplementary h3, h2.widgettitle {
    border-bottom:medium none;
    font-size:14px;
    font-variant:small-caps;
    margin:2em 0 0.4em;
    }

    And that should match the look from the old .com blog.

    Thankyou so much Alx, that's done the trick! It would have taken me a while to get there on my own. Thanks!
