    Hi, does anyone know if there is a way I can show a longer drop down list on the home page with Pilcrow?

    On my site http://lisakaborycha.wordpress.com/ I need 16 chapters to appear on a drop down list from the second button (the one just to the right of Home)and I can only get 12 to appear, without scrolling down by hand. It would be great if it scrolled automatically.

    Any ideas?

  2. Hi lkabor - for help with WordPress.com, would you mind please posting over in the WordPress.com forums? These forums are for self-hosted WordPress installs only. Thanks!

    Hi Kathryn, I just managed to transfer my site to http://www.lisakaborycha.com so I am self-hosted now. Is there a way to solve this problem using the Pilcrow theme?


  4. Hi there, whether or not a user has to scroll in order to see your 16 submenu items depends on the size of their browser window and the resolution of their monitor. On my monitor, I don't have to scroll, for example:


    You could certainly condense the height of each submenu item - it won't guarantee a lack of scrolling, but it might help at some browser-window sizes.

    .sub-menu a {
         line-height: 30px !important;

    An easy way to add custom CSS like this is to activate the Custom CSS module of your already-installed Jetpack plugin. This way, your CSS won't be overwritten when you update the theme.

    Let me know how it goes!

    Hi Kathryn,

    My screen is large (15 1/2) and the drop down cuts off roughly at submenu item 13, so I expect that anyone with a screen this size would have the same problem.

    I will try what you suggest, however, should I be worried about losing my data in the process? Do I need to do anything special to back-up?



  6. Hi Lisa, adding CSS to the Custom CSS module in Jetpack should not cause you to lose any data and there's no need to back up. Let me know how it goes.
