View Full Version : Smooth Navigational Menu Sub Menu Size HELP

Smooth Navigational Menu (v1.5)


I have altered the menu code but I have an issue. As you can see in the attached pictures the sub menus are different widths than the main navigation link. I need both of the drop down menus to have the same widths as their parent link during default state and hover. Can anyone help?? THANKS!

font: bold 14px Verdana;
width: 100%;

.ddsmoothmenu ul{
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
list-style-type: none;

/*Top level list items*/
.ddsmoothmenu ul li{
position: relative;
display: inline;
float: left;


/*top nav size*/
/*Top level menu link items style*/
.ddsmoothmenu ul li a{
display: block;
background: none; /*background of menu items (default state)*/
padding: 8px 17px;
text-decoration: none;

* html .ddsmoothmenu ul li a{ /*IE6 hack to get sub menu links to behave correctly*/
display: inline-block;


/*top nav size*/
.ddsmoothmenu ul li a:link, .ddsmoothmenu ul li a:visited{
color: white;

/*top nav size*/
.ddsmoothmenu ul li a.selected{ /*CSS class that's dynamically added to the currently active menu items' LI A element*/
color: white;
background-color: #63BC4C;

/*top nav size*/
.ddsmoothmenu ul li a:hover{
color: white;
background-color: #63BC4C; /*background of menu items during onmouseover (hover state)*/

/*1st sub level menu*/
.ddsmoothmenu ul li ul{
background-color: #63BC4C; /*background of menu items during onmouseover (hover state)*/
position: absolute;
text-align: center;
left: 0;
display: none; /*collapse all sub menus to begin with*/
visibility: hidden;


/*Sub level menu list items (undo style from Top level List Items)*/
.ddsmoothmenu ul li ul li{
display: list-item;
float: none;


/*All subsequent sub menu levels vertical offset after 1st level sub menu */
.ddsmoothmenu ul li ul li ul{
