How to move text within a list - CSS? (3 posts)

    I am trying to figure out some css code that allows my text (more accurately speaking, my hyperlink) within a list to move up and down. I changed the size of my list container, now the text is below it... Any help would be great! I am pretty new to css and am still trying to figure it out, so be kind :)

    This is what I used to shrink my list container and move it down the page a bit... and here is the website Clowardh2o.com. The problem is up in the top-right corner... (the "Contact Us" text)

    .menu-item-4273 {
    top: 40px;
    height: 50px;
    background-color: blue; /*Colored blue just so I know where it's at/
    }

    Any ideas?

    Wow! That was elegantly stated for a newbie!

    Please provide a site link for CSS support (which, BTW, is not a focus of this forum):

    To discover what CSS is output by your theme, use a web inspection tool such as Firebug: http://getfirebug.com/ , Chrome Inspect Element: https://developers.google.com/chrome-developer-tools/ or Internet Explorer 9+ F12 Dev. Tools: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd565627(v=vs.85).aspx#csstool

    There are others.

    When editing CSS, use a Child Theme
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
    Custom CSS Plugin, or Theme provide custom CSS option.
    Edits to parent themes are lost on theme update.
