    HELP! My menu bar is out of alignment.

    jlm226

      I'm working on a new website for work and needed to adjust the spry menu bar. The problem is that now the last item called "Publications" has a submenu that is showing up on the next line and not underneath like it's supposed to. I've played around with it but it's not working. Before I do anymore damage, can someone please, please tell me how to fix this? Thank you.

       

      Attached is the code for my page so you can see what I'm talking about.

          The answer is in the Spry associated CSS, so your code is of no use here. You need to define a unique ID for the relevant sub-menu to control itzs alignment.

            used to keep submenus from showing up until the user has hovered over the parent
            menu item for some time, as well as a timer for when they leave a submenu to keep
            showing that submenu until the timer fires.
