Re: Targeting Sub-menu Widths

I'm trying to make the sub menus different widths to accommodate the length of the sub-menu names. Some of them are longer than others. 

Is there a way to do this with nth:child or something similar?

I've set a width for all of the sub-menus using:

#Top_bar .menu li ul {
    width: 250px !important;

And I'm targeting the sub-menu underneath 3D Printing with this CSS:

#Top_bar .menu li ul li#menu-item-3223 {
    width: 275px !important;

Lastly, I'm targeting the sub-menu underneath Events using this CSS:

#Top_bar .menu li ul li#menu-item-3542, 
#Top_bar .menu li ul li#menu-item-3532 {
    width: 350px !important;

Is there a way to do this with nth:child or something similar?

    I understand each nav link has it's own unique ID. I don't want to target by ID, I'm trying to find a way to target by class or by child element.

    I want to make the dropdown menus be different widths so that the text fits horizontally and doesn't wrap.

    I can change all of the sub-menu widths at once by using #Top_bar .menu li ul, but how can I change their widths individually?

    So for example, the "Software" sub-menu would be 250px wide and the "Events" sub-menu would be 350px wide, etc. without targeting the ID's?

    See this Stackoverflow post. It's what I'm trying to do.

    The answer there is below. How do I apply that to your theme?


        width: yourwidth 



    You can add display:
    inline-block so that its width will be according to its content automatically

  • Again, I don't want to change the size of the individual <li> elements (size of background of li items)  I want to change the width of entire sub-menu.

    The sub-menus have a class of: <ul class="sub-menu" style="display: block;">

    How do I target the class="sub-menu" dropdown menu width? Not the width of the list items, the width of the sub-menu.

    See the images below. The two sub-menus have different widths, but I'm targeting the <li>'s. I want to target the class="sub-menu".

    <ul class="sub-menu"> is a child element of <ul id="menu-main-menu" class="menu menu-main">, so this should be possible with nth-child(4n) or something similar...?

  • Ahhh!! Yes, thank you Bryan. That's the syntax I was looking for. For some reason I was skipping over the ID of `#menu-item` when trying to target the sub-menu.

    Thanks very much for your help!
  • BTW, how do you format code in these comments?
  • Actually, for anyone else that may need this:

    If you change the CSS from Bryan's post above to the syntax below you can target all of the '.menu-item' in each 'ul.sub-menu' by ID number. This changes the width of the <li> link description as well as the background of the sub-menu.

    For example: li#menu-item-198 > ul.sub-menu .menu-item {
      width: 650px;
