Line 80 of the style.css
#menuBuilder #nav ul li a {
display: table;
height: 100%; //comment out this line.
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
text-decoration: none;
width: 100%;
}
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Sorry to have to ask again, but the same thing has happened with my menu on http://ampatriotnew.com/ the menu stretches out forever before the submenus and I cannot fix it with the last suggestion. What am I missing here?

This is a continuous issue happening whenever changes are made to the menu. And now I cannot find ANYTHING along the line of the first fix. It has happened so often that I have run out of the original fix possibilities. Could ANYONE take a look-see at what I am doing wrong here? I am frustrated at this point... http://ampatriotnew.com/

Thanks in advance...

Please forgive me if problem is far more technical than the matter mentioned below, but I am aware that it's sometimes the simple things that catch me out.

It has been mentioned that the problem is at least sometimes occurring when changes are made to the menu. I would be inclined to ensure with each such change that all three of the Export instructions are followed, i.e.
1. replacing the Menu Builder section of the website header with the newly updated one;
2. replacing the body content with the newly updated one; and (most importantly)
3. replacing the folder of Menu Builder's images, js and stylesheets.

I thought of that also, but alas it is not the case.

I've looked at the index.html file and suspect that the omission of the Doctype in the header is the problem.

I tried editing the file locally by putting at the top
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en"> (that's instead of just <html> of course)
and it all seemed to work fine.
