    Exclamation Nav Buttons CSS - Dropdown Issue

    Hi, I have posted another similar question on your forum - here: http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=259802
    But now the client wants a drop down menu on this website, and I am having a very similar problem with the CSS styling - Specifically hover states for this.

    You will see what the issue is if you preview below. The hover states are not matching up with the navigation bar and I just don't know how to get this right. Also, The secondary navigation should start at the bottom of the NavBar - not as far up as it is.

    This is the site (with drop-downs now)
    http://www.leighdesignstudio.com/ite...t-navDrop.html

    My code is:
    -------------------------------

    <div class="navBar">


    <div id="ddtopmenubar" class="mattblackmenu">
    <ul>
    <li><a href="#" rel="ddsubmenu">iServices</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">iQuote</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">iFaqs</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">iAbout</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">iContact</a></li>

    </ul>
    </div>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    ddlevelsmenu.setup("ddtopmenubar", "topbar") //ddlevelsmenu.setup("mainmenuid", "topbar|sidebar")
    </script>

    <!--Top Drop Down Menu 1 HTML-->

    <ul id="ddsubmenu" class="ddsubmenustyle">
    <li><a href="#">iPhone</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">iPad</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">iPod</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">iT</a></li>
    </ul>

    </div>

    Relavant CSS code is:
    -------------------------------

    .navBar {
    width:1000px;
    height:47px;
    background-image:url(images/backNav.jpg);
    background-repeat:repeat-x;
    float:left;
    margin-top:30px;
    }

    .mattblackmenu ul{
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    font-family:Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
    list-style-type: none;
    overflow: hidden;
    width: 100%;
    height:47px;
    }

    .mattblackmenu li{
    display: inline;
    margin: 0;

    }

    .mattblackmenu li a{
    float: left;
    display: block;
    font-weight:regular;
    font-size:15px;
    text-decoration:none;
    margin: 0;
    padding:0.0em 2.1em;
    margin-top:10px;
    background-image:url(../images/navDivider.jpg);
    background-position:right;
    background-repeat:no-repeat;
    color: white;
    }

    .mattblackmenu li a:visited{
    color: white;
    }

    .mattblackmenu li a:hover{
    background-image:url(../images/navHover.jpg);
    background-repeat:repeat-x;
    height:47px;
    }

    .ddsubmenustyle, .ddsubmenustyle ul{ /*topmost and sub ULs, respectively*/
    font: normal 13px Verdana;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    position: absolute;
    left: 0;
    background: #929292;
    visibility: hidden;
    z-index: 100;
    text-align:left;
    padding-top:7px;
    padding-bottom:7px;
    }

    .ddsubmenustyle li {
    list-style:none;
    }


    .ddsubmenustyle li a{
    display: block;
    width: 109px; /*width of menu (not including side paddings)*/
    color: #000000;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-family:verdana;
    font-size:13px;
    padding:4px;
    padding-left:29px;
    }

    * html .ddsubmenustyle li{ /*IE6 CSS hack*/
    display: inline-block;
    width: 170px; /*width of menu (include side paddings of LI A*/
    list-style-type:none;
    }

    .ddsubmenustyle li a:hover{
    background-color: #afafaf;
    color: #000000;
    }

    Have you tried giving ".ddsubmenustyle, .ddsubmenustyle ul" a top margin to bring it down?

    Yes, I have. It all does the same thing.
    The problem is that I need my text to sit in the middle - with the NavDivider -BUT the hover state must take up the entire height of that navBar - and so I cant get it to work, but I know there must be a way.

    Sorry - that also doesn't work - because then you cant click on the sublinks.
