[resolved] Mantra top and sidebar menu problems (7 posts)

    Hi - I am having 2 problems with my Mantra theme:
    1. The menu tabs that offered my pages horizontally directly under the header are now only a weird list with no tabs
    2. The sidebar menu has chevrons running over all of the text making it unreadable

    I don't think I changed anything between the time when this looked great and now - not sure why it is different.

    Also, I am beyond new to all of this (think 3 days) so I don't know any code.
    THANK YOU!

    Can you try deactivating plugins to explore whether any could be responsible?
    Could you also link the webpage with the issue?

    I can do that - I did install the facebook plugin - Please don't tell me I can't have that and the tabs both? I will give that a try.

    There's a syntax error in the stylesheet;

    #header h1 {
    	margin: 0px;
    	padding: 0px;
    	float: left;
    	width: 100%;
    	font-size: 28px;
    	color: #000000;
    	line-height: 30px;
            font-family: Georgia;

    There is no closing curly brace.

    You shouldn't be modifying the theme's files. If you need to make CSS tweaks, do so through a Custom CSS plugin or a Child Theme stylesheet.

    Right, totally understood - I was trying to change the font :)
    Where do I put the closing curly brace?

    Will this fix the problem with the sidebar too?

    Thanks!

    Put the brace after font-family: Georgia, for example;

    #header h1 {
    	margin: 0px;
    	padding: 0px;
    	float: left;
    	width: 100%;
    	font-size: 28px;
    	color: #000000;
    	line-height: 30px;
            font-family: Georgia;
    }

    Will this fix the problem with the sidebar too?

    Don't know.
