Support Case Month: March 2012
I am done building my web menu. My coding is set so the drop down menus have an auto width however they aren’t adjusting to the correct widths..some have extra space and others have too little thus forcing the sub menus to become vertical instead of horizontal. Since each Sub Menu has somewhere between 1-3 columns I wasn’t sure how many to put in the style editor. I am wondering if it will in fact still look right on an html page. Which brings me to my other issue. I am planning on adding the menu to an existing site. It’s through Network Solutions, the menu would thus need to appear in the header design coding (to apply to all pages of the site). I’ve been reading through your knowledge bank but keep finding information on linking the menu to a site that has a local root on the desktop, this site does not. The site is http://www.driveinautosound.com.
I’ve attached my menu.
Thank you for all of your help and assistance!

If you turn the “Menu Structure” option back to “inside this project” you will see that you have set custom widths for most of your submenus:
This is why these submenus are not becoming vertical, while the ones that do not have a width set become vertical.
There are two solutions for this:
1) change the menu back to “populate inside this project” so that the custom widths are actually active, and set widths for all submenus
2) change your HTML code for each submenu so that it does not “brake”. One way would be to add your DIVs within TDs of a single table row.
