three or four lines of sub-navigation?

Postby caggens » Wed Sep 27, 2006 4:58 pm

I need sub-navigation help.

In one case the template allows three lines before wrapping to the fourth line with "more ..." The break is between "more" and "..." so the "..." is the only thing on the last line, which looks confusing.

In another case the template allows four lines of sub-navigation.

If I had four lines in both cases, I wouldn't need the "more..."

Any ideas?

I haven't thought about your problem yet, Alvin knows more about that then me.

FYI: The showing up of the ``more...'' is only dependent on the number of items in the sub-navigation.

6 is the magic number, if the list is >=6, the first 5 are showed and ``more...'' shows up.

Thanks for the info.

I decided to reword one of the items in the list in order to prevent the dots from wrapping to the next line.

Re: word-wrap putting "..." alone on a new line, I've had the same thought. Nitpicky to bring up, but it does look a little odd. Could we prevent "more ..." from getting split up just by using an nbsp (or nobr tags or some CSS)?

That would be nice, but I'll be buggered if I can figure out why I can't use character enties in a css file using :before and :after.

If anyone knows how to do that, beer will be provided.
