Navigation Folder Tweaking

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am looking to drop how my navigation folders currently sits on my site to them more of a cleaner look. I have 3 items I am looking to complete that I haven't been able to do on my own yet.

  • Currently you will notice the gray folder bg cuts appears too close to the main nav, it also cuts off some of the bottom of the text. If this could be dropped that would be great. 
  • How can I add a light stroke around the gray folders - preferably wanting the color to be #005aaf?
  • How can I remove the symbol/icon next to the two folders currently on my navigation

Thanks in advance for any assistance, it is greatly appreciated.

Hi @Patterson 

You have this in your Custom CSS that is adding the icon in the navigation:

.header-nav-item.header-nav-item--folder a.header-nav-folder-title:after {
    font-family: FontAwesome;
    content: "\f107";
    padding-left: 4px;

The reason that the dropdown is so close to the text and cutting off is because you have the line height of the navigation set to 8px, that value should be approximately 1.4em. you can change this in the font styles.

This Custom CSS will add a stroke with your colour:

.header-nav .header-nav-item--folder .header-nav-folder-content {
    border: 2px solid #005aaf;
