I am building a site into WP that has a fixed width menu and having a lot of issues with getting the sizing of it to play nice with WP.
Is the best way to handle this to apply some custom CSS for the specific menu ID that WP has automatically assigned to each button? Can these ID’s be trusted? Like, do they ever change?
Is there a better way to handle a fixed with menu?
Can you give an example of these IDs WordPress supplies?
They are reliable unless the page is deleted.
custom css would still be a better option u could do something like
#menu_id > ul li
and if you know to use
Robin….. that would cause issues if the buttons were moved around.
Yes, if the buttons are moved from for example the first spot (first child) to the 3rd child.
the first child means if u have menu like
no matter where u move there always be a first child and always be a last child no matter where you move
a is first child
and c is last child
yup unless you only have 1 menu item
and if you even added 10 menu items the 10th item would automatically be considered last child
Yeah I know that, but what I mean is if you set the width of say the first-child (Example 1) to 100px and the 3rd child (Example 2) to 150px and then moved Example 1 to be the third child and Example 1 to be the first child, then that would mean Example 2 now would have a width of 100px and Example 1 would have a width of 150px. 😉
