    I am having 2 issues with the menu on the Metro theme.

    1. How do I make the Subnav wider? I cannot find anywhere to increase the width of it.
    2. My Subnav text does not show up like it does on the demo.

    Thanks

    For your Subnav – are you meaning that there isn’t a HOVER COLOR? If so, change this to whatever color you want.

    [css].genesis-nav-menu li li a:hover {
    background-color: #F96E5B;
    }[/css]

    I am still hunting for the wider Subnav. For the life of me I cannot find it either! I’ll keep looking.

    If I change “auto” to 50% – it widens, but not on your site. That top “Services” tab will not drop down.

    [css].menu-secondary, #header .genesis-nav-menu {
    float: right;
    width: auto;
    }[/css]

    AHA thanks! I looked at that but was not sure about it.

    I am talking about the text area on the left hand side. If you look at the demo here you can see the text on the left hand side on the sub-nav, this is the area I am talking about.

    And what is weird, is if I move the tab services out from the 1st slot on the menu the menu looks fine but if I leave it in the 1st position it goes to the top line and moves everything down. WEIRD

    Did you follow these instructions from the my.studiopress.com Get Started?

    How to Configure the Navigation

    To set up the menu items in the Primary Navigation please see How to Set Up Menus.

    For the date on the right, go to Genesis -> Settings -> Navigation. Check the box to use Nav Extras. Pick the date from the drop down.

    The menu at the top of the screen is the Secondary nav menu slot. There is a Subnav Left widget area where we used a text widget.

    The primary navigation is correct it is the yellow menu.

    And for the secondary nav menu slot I put a text widget there, that is what it says and yes I followed the directions, that is why I am confused.

    Ok, just making sure because I wasn’t quite seeing that in the CSS when I used Firebug. You don’t have it in place now so I can target it.

    That is where I am confused because I do have the widget in place in my widgets section.

    Girl… I am about to pull my hair out. So… you have a Text Box with text in it in the Subnav Left widget area. That area is in the widget area. I just got it to work over here – http://cre8tivediva.com/metrobp

    That’s weird. I just copied my style sheet to yours site in Firebug and it’s still missing so I think it some code the function area. Did you modify that at all?

    Check your functions area for this – see if yours looks the same:

    [php]// Reposition the secondary navigation
    remove_action( ‘genesis_after_header’, ‘genesis_do_subnav’ );
    add_action( ‘genesis_before’, ‘genesis_do_subnav’ );

    // Adds widget area before the .menu on #subnav
    add_filter( ‘genesis_do_subnav’, ‘child_do_subnav_widget’, 10, 2 );
    function child_do_subnav_widget( $subnav_output, $subnav ){
    ob_start();
    genesis_widget_area( ‘subnav-left’, array(
    ‘before’ => ‘<div class="subnav-left widget-area">’,
    ) );
    $widget_area = ob_get_clean();

    return str_replace( $subnav, $widget_area . $subnav, $subnav_output );
    }[/php]

    I’m having the exact same problem. I have a text widget in place and copied the code you have above in my functions.php file just to be sure. (They were the same.)
