There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes.

Extra spacing on page menu child items

Hello mods!

I'm having trouble with my page menu bar. My goal is to have it span the width of the header/site (900px). That seems to be working just fine, but when I applied the css to achieve this goal, I suddenly had a spacing issue with the child menu items. If you look at my attached image, there is extra background or spacing to the right of the second level items, which causes the third level items to be pushed further to the right. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Here are the CSS inserts I'm using for the menu:
/* Menus */

div#menu1 {
border: none;
width: auto

div#menu1 ul.rMenu 
border: none;
background: #fff;
width: 895px;
margin-right: auto;
margin-left: auto;

ul.rMenu li a {width:166px; text-align:center;}

div#menu1 {
background: #fff;
Here is the website: http://035219d.netsolhost.com/test

I'm using WordPress 3.3.1 and Atahualpa 3.7.3, and Chrome (on a Mac) for my browser, if that helps.

Thanks in advance!

You're going to have to fiddle with menu widths both within the theme options and using CSS for the sub menus. I just spent a bunch of time on a client's site twiddling with stuff like this. My best suggestion is to use Firebug and twiddle.
