Fixing Your New Nav Bar!!

Step 1. If you have this in your coding anywhere:

#menu {display:none}

Delete it.

Then, paste this in:

#menu {background:transparent!important}

This will remove the dark green bar in the background.

Step 2. Delete anything that says '#top_links" from your code, since it doesn't do anything anymore.

Step 3. Paste the following into your code:

#nav {
height: 35px;
width:1000px;
position: relative;
left:-50px;
border: 3px solid #000;
background:#fff;
font-size:12px;
z-index: 100;
}

#nav li {
height: auto;
text-align: center;
background-color: #fff!important;
}

This section codes the main bar of the navigation. Change the border settings and background color to match your layout. The current settings are just copied directly from my layout, so you may have to fiddle with the 'width' and 'left' values to align it properly with your layout.

AND

#nav li:hover ul {
background:#eee!important;
width:1000px!important;
}

This section codes the second tier of the nav bar. You can make the second level a different color than the main level if you like, or you can do the same color. Up to you! You can also change the width to fit to your layout.

AND

This section codes the sub-menu when it is open, but not hovered.

#nav ul {
background:#95305c!important;
width:1000px!important;}

Step 4. Finally, paste the following codes:


#nav a {background:none!important;}
#nav a:hover {background:none!important;}

This prevent the default light green highlight!

If you have any questions or have trouble implementing this, please let me know and I'll do my best to help!!

One note, I find that when customizing the link styles and such, you usually need to put !important directly after, before the semi colon (eg. color:#000!important;) so that it overrides the default settings..

If you have any questions or have trouble implementing this, please let me know and I'll do my best to help!!

Thanks Uni! Although looking through the HP css style sheet now, I see it would have been very easy to figure out myself. :)

Updated to reflect the new changes to the nav bar:The sub-menu now stays open, even if your mouse isn't directly hovering it, which should make navigating a bit easier :)

Thanks for this Uni. I'm not a coder myself so this made it way easier. However, I have a question, I can't seem to get the green footer and green highlight of the links to go away, is there a way to make it do this?

Thanks! It made the green on the footer look a little less bulky, but the awkward green highlight for the Navigation bar won't seem to go away. It could all just be me though, looking at this coding, i'm trying to follow it, but I may have missed something huge. :P
