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. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] Removing Left Border / Padding from submenu

Sorry if this was covered in another thread (I did search and didn't find exactly). Looking at this page: http://www.friedpotatopress.com/

In the sub menus, when not hovered, there is a 10px white border to the left of these items. When I hover, the intended blue background color covers this white area. I'd like that white strip to the left of the un-hovered sub-menu items to be black like the rest of the item's background. Here are the CSS inserts I have for this site, any quick adjustment to help fix this would be highly appreciated!

div#menu1 {
border: solid 0px;
background: none;

div#menu1 ul.rMenu {
background: none;
border: none;

ul.rMenu-hor li {
margin-left: 10px;

ul.rMenu a:link,
ul.rMenu a:active,
ul.rMenu a:visited,
ul.rMenu a:hover {
padding: 4px 20px; /* 4px top/bottom, 20px left/right padding */
padding-left: 20px!important;
padding-right: 20px!important;}

/* add formatting to submenu items */
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li ul.rMenu-ver li a:link {
margin-top: 2px;
font-size: 23px;
padding-top: 12px;
padding-bottom: 12px;
font-weight: normal;
margin-left: -10px!important;
padding-left: -10px!important;

What you want to do is change the color of the unordered list. Try adding
HTML Code:
ul.rMenu ul {
    background-color: #000;
