Widening Menu in Big Brother theme

  • Author

    I’m using the Big Brother theme. I need to make the drop-down menu items wider so that my text doesn’t wrap onto a second line. I used the following CSS to modify the width.

    .sub-menu .menu-item {
    width: 215px;

    This does widen the width of the text so that it doesn’t wrap, but there is still a text box that shows that is the size of the original menu. It seems that there is another property I need to modify. Does any one know what I need to change to get the text box to go away, i.e. to make it the same width as the menu item text?

    The blog I need help with is globaldatastrategy.wordpress.com.


    Hi there, this was an odd one. Add the following to your custom CSS to fix the submenu issue.

    .nav-horizontal li > ul {
        width: inherit;



    Hurrah! This worked perfectly. Thank you, thank you! :-)


    Excellent and you are welcome.
