Support » Themes and Templates » I need help with menus please

  • Hello 🙂 I’m trying to add more menu tabs to a website that was created by someone else. When I add a tab, it creates a second horizontal menu line directly under it, it’s not very good looking. How can I fix this, so when I add tabs, it just continues in a line in stead of creating a second one? Thanks –

    There literally isn’t enough room in that design/layout for more menu items. The header area (which includes the top menu) is only 980px wide.

    Esmi is right. At the scale you have the font, combined with the padding/margin values for each menu item, there is not enough space horizontally to fit more menu items.

    I adjusted some things in your CSS and it seems to fit. Try these settings:

    File to edit:

    Look for this line of code (line 1076):
    #menu-main-nav li strong {text-transform:uppercase;display:block;font-size:13px;letter-spacing: 0.6px;font-weight:800;}

    and change font size: 11px

    Now look for this line of code (line 1070):
    #menu-main-nav li {float:left;padding:5px 31px 12px 13px;position:relative;vertical-align:top;height:1%;margin-right: 2px;}

    and change padding: 5px 20px 5px 20px

    If that still doesn’t work for you, go back to this line of code:
    #menu-main-nav li strong {text-transform:uppercase;display:block;font-size:13px;letter-spacing: 0.6px;font-weight:800;}

    and change text-transform: none

    If you have KARMA theme from, their might be a setting feature in the back-end to change the font size of the menu items. If not, perhaps you could contact the developer there for more help.

    I’m sorry but as you are using a commercial theme, you need to seek further support from the theme’s vendors.

    Hi Stephanie,

    For support with a ThemeForest theme, please contact the author of that theme. You can do this from the contact form on the author’s ThemeForest profile page. In the case of the Karma theme’s author, that’s here:

    Good luck! 🙂

    Thanks so much everyone for replying.

    @waterworks2 : I tried what you said, no success but thanks so much anyways 🙂

    The person that initially created the website seem’s to have disappeared from the face of the earth. I am receptionist here, and have very basic knowledge in word press, I only know how to post basically, and even then, it still doesn’t look that good. Anyways, my final question is, what the best way to get to know wordpress? A book? Or just read on this website? How did you guys get started? I need to learn to update/modify the website. Thanks so much.

    Strengthen your skills in HTML/CSS if you want to customize the designs.
    And, wordpress lessons/docs are good for understanding wordpress, you’ll find everything in them.

    If you get in problem, Forums are the best choice. People here are keen to help. Thumbs up for wordpress community.

    And, keep yourself motivated.
