    • hi there,

      a link to your site would be really helpful, especially because you mentioned that you already applied css changes.

    • hi again,

      you can create an image that would work as the complete background for the blue menu bar.
      it needs to be 34px heigh and around 840px wide. you can call it navbar.png
      then upload this image to the template folder .../templates/rt_afterburner_j15/images/navbar.png

      then open light4.css and find the following code
      #nav {
      -moz-background-clip:border;
      -moz-background-inline-policy:continuous;
      -moz-background-origin:padding;
      background:#0083CB none repeat scroll 0 0;
      height:34px;
      position:relative;
      width:780px;
      z-index:1;
      }
      and change to
      #nav {
      -moz-background-clip:border;
      -moz-background-inline-policy:continuous;
      -moz-background-origin:padding;
      background:transparent url(../images/navbar.png) no-repeat scroll 0 0;
      height:34px;
      margin-left:-30px;
      position:relative;
      width:840px;
      z-index:1;
      }

    • Kat your a legend thankyou, altered little bit but you helped me out so way cool.
      Appreciate it really i do.


      Just one thing to go now! and thats rok ajax search specialized code per browser etc or better way to code so it lines up ok http://www.rockettheme.com/forum/index.php?f=204&t=62087&p=388264&rb_v=viewtopic#p388264

      this is code i ended up using
      #nav {background:transparent url(../images/navbar.png) no-repeat scroll 0 0;
      height:39px;
      margin-top:-3px;
      margin-left:-29px;
      position:relative;
      width:838px;
      z-index:1;
      }

    • My menu texts are longer than what shows.. how do I extend or make the menu dropdowns wider?.

      Was this question answered at all, i have the same problem, my text is for to long for the drop down nav so it falls onto a second line, problem is that it does not extent the colour background. is there a way to make the drop downs width greater? I am working locally so i cannot give you a link.

    • Hello,

      You can change the widths of the dropdown menu by opening the 'style' css you have as default (dark.css, light.css)

      Find:
      #nav li ul {position:absolute;width:170px;left:-999em;margin-left:-1px;border:1px solid #006B9F;border-top:0;}
      #nav li ul ul {margin:-31px 0 0 170px;}
      #nav li:hover ul ul, #nav li:hover ul ul ul, #nav li:hover ul ul ul ul, #nav li.sfHover ul ul, #nav li.sfHover ul ul ul, #nav li.sfHover ul ul ul ul {left:-999em;}
      #nav li li {padding:0;height:auto;background:#00557E;width:170px;}

      Change both widths by the same amount.
