I did think of sub menus too. The only problem with that particular button is that Violin and Viola lessons both would go to the same page. There's no separate page for violin lessons and another for viola lessons. But maybe I can have a "Studio" or "Teaching" button and then have submenus for "violin/viola lessons" and "Pioneer Valley Strings" (which I don't yet have a button for, but is already a page on the site). Hmmmm....


If it's a sub-menu buttom you could have one button with the two choices because sub-menu buttons drop down vertically and can be as wide as you want.

Inger's suggestion is also a good one where the individual buttons go to the relevant section on the linked page.

Inger's suggestion in this post of 2014 still seems to work for wrapping text on a Menu Builder button.

Folks in the support room fixed my mobile view problem.

However, now the buttons are not wide enough on the desktop view (to fit "violin/viola lessons"). I try to make it wider and it pushes the last button down to the next line. I was hoping to keep them all and fix this. But if there's no way to make the buttons wider, then I'll have to go with a submenu.

PS- this is not a problem on my desktop, but on my tablet which still views the menu with all 6 buttons across.

Looks like you need to move the breakpoint (where the menu changes) further to the right. Have you got something we can look at?

Didn't work. When I moved the breakpoint, the mobile menu disappeared. Must be a weird glitch. Anyway, moved the breakpoints back and created a submenu just for that one button. Apparently there's no way to make the buttons wider without having them move onto the next line.

I'm still testing with: http://www.violaduo.com/testpage.html

That one seems to work the best. Unfortunately we will have to find a place near the top of the page to put the word "violin" since we no longer have it in the menu buttons. Argh.

Well submenus are a fail....on the android phone in the house. I give up, LOL. I guess we're going to forget the submenus and just go with the word "lessons" on the main button. It's not as good as "violin/viola lessons" but at least it works.

(When I say fail, I mean that when you click on the button with the submenus, it just reloads the page and doesn't let you click on the actual sub-menu buttons.) Works on my iPhone, but not on the Android.

This is just a plain menu made with buttons at 'auto' width. In order to adapt to various screen sizes, it is necessary to add more breakpoints than if they had been with %. If you think you can use this, you need to make the style you want yourself, but make sure that nothing gets wider at any breakpoint than it is now.

If you don't like it and don't want to use it, I may be able to help you with a menu built with flex, but I will not be able to do that right now.
