    Hello All,

    I’m currently building out our new site using Outreach and I’ve having some trouble with a few things.

    Right now I’m working on the Header Right Custom Menu widget and the different menu items are not properly aligning in Chrome.  The outreach demo site does not seem affected by this issue, however other sites based on Outreach do seem to have the same problem.

    My website is http://www.leafonthewindphoto.com/

    Other sites I’m seeing this issue on: http://xristiansimon.com/intune/


    If I reduce the width of the browser this issue will resolve with a narrower browser window.  Since the demo site doesn’t exhibit this behavior, I can only assume the code there is a little different.  The issue does not seem to occur in IE9.

    Please, how can I fix this?

    Hi Simon,

    I was having the same issue on a site using Outreach and deactivating the Genesis Shortcodes plugin seemed to fix it. Have you tried deactivating all your plugins to see if the menu displays correctly without them? If so, you should be able to narrow it down by activating one at a time.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I do not currently have the plugin you refer to installed.  I did deactivate a few plugins and that, unfortunately, does not seem to resolve the issue.

    I currently have the following installed, and they’re active unless otherwise noted: 1) Better WP Security, 2) BulletProof Security, 3) Genesis Responsive Slider, 4) Jetpack, 5) Login Lockdown, 6) Secure WordPress, 7) Transparent Image Watermark (disabled for this test), 8) Genesis Latest Tweets (disabled until API issue resolved), 9) Akismet (disabled).

    I should note, at this time I’ve tested this on 3 different machines and it definitely appears to be a chrome <-> Outreach issue, rather than an issue specific to my machine – not that anyone has suggested that, but I wanted to rule it out.





    I am using Chrome and viewing the URL’s above and do not see any issues.  The alignment is doing as it should.

    I’m having the exact same problem on my site over at:


    I tried getting rid of margins but no joy. Can anyone shed any light on this?



    While working on my site last night, getting the logo to be just how I wanted it, I believe as a side effect I resolved this issue. Ill post more details later.



    Looking at how some other sites using this theme were able to accomplish what I wanted to do with my logo, I edited the Header section of the outreach child theme’s style.css as follows, and as a side effect these changes seem to have eliminated this other issue in most circumstances.

    #title-area {
    background: url(images/Header-320×120.png) no-repeat; /*Added*/
    background-position: left !important; /*Added*/
    background-size: contain; /*Added*/
    float: left;
    overflow: hidden;
    width: 430px;
    }#title {
    font-family: ‘Lato’, sans-serif;
    font-size: 48px;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 1;
    /*margin: 35px 0 0;; Removed*/
    margin: 0; /*Added*/
    text-transform: uppercase;
    }#title a,
    #title a:hover {
    /*color: #fff; Removed*/
    color: #FFFFFF; /*Added*/
    display: block; /*Added*/
    height: 120px; /*Added*/
    text-decoration: none;
    text-indent: -9999px; /*Added*/
    width: 320px; /*Added*/

    The one case where the issue returns is if you zoom in on the webpage but, you don’t want to do that anyway, because Outreach does a horrible job of handling it, apparently.

    Hopefully this helps you too.



    This is a problem known only for Chrome and the Chrome Developers have been working on it. Jen Baumann has a solution to this over here – http://www.studiopress.com/forums/topic/outreach-menu-broken/#post-23303.
