Menu elements stacking in header

Recommended Posts

Something on my header (https://dala-dev.squarespace.com/  PW: test) is causing the menu items to stack instead of shrink together on slightly smaller screens. I like the hamburger for tablet and mobile, but the menu items are stacking at more than 1500px screens. 

I tried to just make the fonts smaller, but they're still stacking. Any ideas? I just want them to line up until at least a screen size of 1240 or so.

Try adding this to the Custom CSS on your website:

.header-title-nav-wrapper {
    flex: 1 0 76%;
}
.header-layout-nav-left .header-title {
    margin-right: 3vw;
}
.header-actions--right .header-actions-action {
    margin: 0 0 0 3vw;
}

You could also adjust the link spacing to the smaller and make the font a little smaller. All of that together should help.

Thanks! I've reduced everything as small as it will go already, and it gets close but still stacks. The CSS you gave me doesn't do anything that I can tell unfortunately. It's so weird - it looks fine when I inspect it, but when I reduce the window myself, everything stacks.

It's not stacking any more when I look at your website.

always, currently it proceeds the width of the sidebar background and doesn't stack at all. 

i'd love the longer page titles to stack so i can reduce the overall width of the header background. i feel like i've done it all a backwards way but i wasn't able to find anything other than how i've set this up!

To clarify, you're wanting the words within a single link to wrap to another line so the navigation can be narrower?

And this for the folders:
