[resolved] Dropdown Vertical Menu /Link Separator (5 posts)

    I am redesigning an older site and bringing it into wordpress. The original content is heavy on sub-menus and sub-sub menus.

    This is a redir. link from a test site to the dev site.

    To break-out the menus I have attempted to modify the css code for the ul and li unsuccessfully to provide separator lines (border top and / or border bottom)? (i think i'm only average skill with this)

    In IE and Safari its inconsistent. I think its working fine in F-Fox.

    Is there something I'm doing wrong with this or is it a characteristic of the css edits in those browsers.

    Is there another option to consider? Would a horizonal dropdown with vertical sub-menus be a better option?

    Thank you for any help or direction to a resource - its greatly appreciated. jimii

    Looks like you are using border: outset - which isn't supported in most browsers:

    WPyogi - thank you for your followup reply. It was a good answer but not quite the solution here. You however helped me to refocus my thinking.

    I tested solid and it didnt work - which didnt make any sense, so I looked at the code and decided to check changing the border size. It was too small at less than 1px. I increased to 1px and I was able to get solid to work and now even outset with IE / Safari and FFox.

    Thank you for your suggestion - it helped to get me on the right track with this and resolve it. : )
