Go to solution Solved by LightandShapes,

Hi,

I am setting up my website and added website dividers with the code:

Quote

// Blue Square Nav Dividers //
.header-nav-item a:after {
  content: "◼";
  margin-left: 22px;
  color: #3195b3;
  font-size: 15px
}
div.header-nav-item:last-child>a:after {
    visibility: hidden;
}
// Remove Slash From Folder Nav //
.header-nav .header-nav-item--folder .header-nav-folder-content .header-nav-folder-item a:after {
  content: "" !important;
}
// Remove Active Nav Line //
.header-nav-item--active a {
    background-image: none !important;
}

I am struggling to get the dividers to display exactly centre. Can anyone help, please?

Try something like the following.

// Blue Square Nav Dividers //
.header-nav-item a:after {
  content: "◼";
  margin-left: 1vw;
  color: #3195b3;
  font-size: 15px
}
div.header-nav-item:last-child>a:after {
    visibility: hidden;
}
// Remove Slash From Folder Nav //
.header-nav .header-nav-item--folder .header-nav-folder-content .header-nav-folder-item a:after {
  content: "" !important;
}
// Remove Active Nav Line //
.header-nav-item--active a {
    background-image: none !important;
}

.header-layout-branding-center-nav-center .header-title-nav-wrapper .header-nav .header-nav-item{
    margin-left: 0px !important;
}

Hi,

 

Thank you for your response. This worked perfectly for the first divider, however the following two are still off centre. Are you able to help with this please?

Yes.

I specifically targeted the out of centre divider spacing in the code and nudged them.

Here is the code I utilised if anybody comes across this issue desiring a solution:

Quote

// Blue Square Nav Dividers //
.header-nav-item a:after {
  content: "◼";
  margin-left: 0.47vw;
  color: #3195b3;
  font-size: 16px
}
// First Divider Spacing //
div.header-nav-item:first-child>a:after {
   margin-left: 1vw;
}
// Third Divider Spacing //
div.header-nav-item:nth-child(3)>a:after
{
   margin-right: -1.4px;
}
// Hide Last Divider //
div.header-nav-item:last-child>a:after {
    visibility: hidden;
}
// Remove Slash From Folder Nav //
.header-nav .header-nav-item--folder .header-nav-folder-content .header-nav-folder-item a:after {
  content: "" !important;
}
// Remove Active Nav Line //
.header-nav-item--active a {
    background-image: none !important;
}
// Centre Navigation Dividers //
.header-layout-branding-center-nav-center .header-title-nav-wrapper .header-nav .header-nav-item{
    margin-left: 0px !important;
}
