Dropdown menu navigation with sticky...

Hello,

I'm trying to work with a toggle drop down menu, but 'm having a bit of trouble getting it to display correctly.
I have a container housing a font icon ( toggle ) and the container that is to be my drop down.
The toggle function is working almost completely how I intend. Although, when toggling the menu no matter what I seem to change in terms of dimension, etc. The navigation menu is always directly under the font icon. Clipping into the header top bar. The end results to have the toggled menu flush with sticky header, and the left hand side of the page
I'm still learning all the details with classes / attributes / fine tuning the small things.

Any help or pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated

Thank you!

It would be good if you could post your project file, or pop it into your dropbox if the file is too big, so that we can see your settings/styling. Otherwise all we can do is make guesses.

Edit: OK, I see you have posted it. Downloading now...

Daryl, which programme are you using? RSD2.5 or SD3? You are posting this in the RSD forum, but when I try opening the file in RSD, I get an error saying Invalid file.

I found that you are using SD3, so I will move this discussion to the Site Designer forum.

If you give the font icon a bottom padding of about 10-12px, it should be ok.

BTW, there is a custom.css file referenced in the settings, but that file is missing.

Thank for the quick reply, and moving my post to the correct location.

I made a component of the sticky header: imported in to a new blank template. I tired attaching it to the post, but was getting an error mentioning that it's not of the support file formats. Even though it is an .RSD file saved from RSD:V3. Here's a link to google drive https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Cy7095SiP84CrKuxGL10eGkt2N9tqRGq/view?usp=sharing

I'm going to use your suggestion about giving the fonticon a bottom padding. Will report back.

Using the most recent RSD file I shared. Giving the fonticon a bottom padding ( 20 px ). Seemed to work ever so slightly, but only seemed to stretch out sticky header, and never giving the appearance that the menu navigation was a separate entity from the sticky header.

It's late here now, so I will not look at it until the morning. I forgot to say that you probably will have to experiment with a bit different bottom paddings at each breakpoint.

I also tired various things, such as giving the drop down menu a top margin. Which gave the illusion of it doing that I wanted. Although when previewing the results. Nothing I did seemed to have an effect.
