Changing Width of Nav Dropdown Menu

Go to solution Solved by Ziggy,

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My client wants the nav dropdown menus to be smaller in width so you don't have to scroll across the page to view the entire titles of the services. I found the following code but when used, it only changed the width of the box and not the text (see screenshot attached). Any way I can make the text go to the next line with the new width?

Here is the code that made the box smaller:

.header-nav .header-nav-item--folder .header-nav-folder-content {
    width: 100px;
}

Try this Custom CSS:

.header-nav .header-nav-item--folder .header-nav-folder-content {
  min-width:unset;  
  width: 120px !important;
}
.header-nav .header-nav-item--folder .header-nav-folder-content .header-nav-folder-item {
  white-space: initial;
}

That worked! I played around with the width of it. 

I am worried that my client will complain about the words being under the "bullet" which is just a symbol I put in front of each nav title. They are very picky. Is there a way I can indent the words "therapy" a bit to align with the first word? Screenshot attached.

You would have to put the bullet in as a pseudo element before the text using ::before {content:"";} on the navigation items in the folder.

Would you mark my post as the solution and give it a thumbs up if it helped? Thanks!
