How do you add vertical lines ( | ) between the items of your navigation bar/header?

Recommended Posts

I'm on a new 7.1 template and I'd like to add vertical lines as my spacers between navigation items. I used some code to try and get it working but it didn't do it for me. Can someone help?

Here's the code I used:

/* Add vertical links */
.site-navigation .nav-item {
   border-right: 1px solid #000 !important;
/* Hide vertical last item */
.site-navigation .nav-item:last-child {
   border-right: none !important;
/* Change spacing */
.site-navigation .nav-item span {
   padding-right: 10px;

Ghost has a free plugin that does this... you'd just want to change out the content from a slash to a vertical line.

I’m trying to get my navigation links evenly spread out across the full width of the container, centered, with vertical lines separating each. It keeps justifying left 


It looks like you solved with this CSS?

.header-layout-branding-center-nav-center .header-title-nav-wrapper {
    flex: 100% !important;
    flex-direction: column;
    width: 100% !important

.header-display-desktop {
    flex-direction: column

.tweak-fixed-header .header .header-announcement-bar-wrapper {
    padding-left: 0;
    padding-right: 0

.header-nav {
    width: 103.2%;
    border-top: 1px solid #000;
    padding-top: 0px;
    padding-left: .7vw !important;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #000 !important

.header-nav-item:hover {
    background-color: #6e6843 !important

.header-nav-item--divider {
    padding: .1rem 0;
    border-right: 1px solid #000 !important
