Support » Themes and Templates » Twenty Eleven Theme Menu Problem

  • Hello. Wondering if anyone can help me figure out what I need to edit in the css to fix my issue. My website is using the twenty eleven theme. My question is why does my navigation menu change when I go from the home page to category pages. The menu seems to be restrained on the category pages and forces the Recipes link to the bottom thus expanding the navigation div in height. On the home page this does not occur. I want it to act as it does on the home page but I am unsure where to tear into the css to get to this issue. Thanks in advance to anyone who might have a solution or idea.

  • The thing u must know is the category page is called single.php that lies in your twenty eleven theme. but the information you have given is not sucifient to solve your problem.I think the category pages looks more better then the home page. You are having alot of design problem in you home page. can you juss paste your code for the homepage. that will help out to know more about your site.


    right now, I find your front page having severe display problems, possibly due to the cache plugin (?)

    as for the ‘restricted’ menu in the category pages:

    edit this style in style.css of your theme, to reduce the padding:

    #branding .only-search + #access div {
    	padding-right: 0px;

    also, if you haven’t already, create a child theme of Twenty Eleven to work with – do not edit the default theme Twenty Eleven directly.

    Thanks for the quick replies. Wow the front page has never looked like that. When I posted before it was just fine. It appears to have returned back to normal. I actually am using a child theme, I have only made some minor changes overall through my child theme. Anyway I will check into both of your suggestions and see what shakes out. Thanks again.

    I actually am using a child theme

    very good 😉

    in this case, add the suggested style to style.css of the child theme.

    Your suggestion worked!! Thank u very much. I was not sure what selector to target to approach this situation. I have some experience with css but not so much with php, I get confused how to attack certain things in the wordpress codex. Do you have any suggestions on specific reading to increase my knowledge of such things? Thanks Again!!
