I am using Joomla 3.10.4 and I have made a drop down menu that displays submenu's that display a single article when clicked on. However when it pulls up the article it doesn't take up width of the page like it should - I can tell by the colored background behind the text and if I move the text it just smushes. I have made sure that there wasn't anything like a module next to it. What can I do? enter image description here

    If it is publicly available, can you provide a link to the page so that people can see the HTML/CSS behind your menu to help you further?

  • Website is legacyit.net using the JSN Finance Template. It looks like this is fixed now. Could the question author please provide the solution for anyone else that encounters the same problem? Jan 19, 2022 at 22:50

I think you should check the element of the div surrounding the post, there may be a max-width here.

  • Thank you for attempting to help, but if the question is missing the necessary details to confidently offer specific resolving advice, please wait to answer until the question has been edited (This prevents "wild guesses" from littering a page. I'm not calling your post "trash".) Jan 12, 2022 at 6:08
