How to style and adjust the width of the dropdown menu in Divi with CSS
Do you want to style your dropdown menu in Divi a little different than the style options that are available? In this tutorial, I’ll show you how you can accomplish that with CSS.

At the end of this post I’ll also show you how you can increase the width of the dropdown menu.

You can see a live demo here.

If you want to take your Divi header to the next level then try to make a custom divi header by following my custom header tutorial.

CSS styles for your dropdown menu

First you need to create a dropdown menu. Then you can add this CSS for the styling. place the CSS code in Theme options > Custom CSS or in your child theme if you are using one.

Note: I have added some notes between /*  */ so you know where you can change the colors and font size.

Increase the width of the dropdown menu

Sometimes the text of your dropdown menu breaks on another line, to avoid this we can increase the width of the dropdown menu. Add the following CSS code in Theme options > Custom CSS
Note: If you want to change the width to something else then follow the notes between /*  */

I hope this tutorial was helpfull for you. By default there are not that many styling options for the dropdown menu, but with these little tweaks you can still style your dropdown menu.

The same issue is with the mobile menu. You can follow my tutorial how to style the Divi mobile menu for more customizations.

    This is awesome! You should create a cheat sheet for the main menu level as well. That would be bomb!

    Thanks for this very handy code. It altered the width of my dropdown menus when viewed on the home page, but not when viewing the same header/menus from other pages. Hoiw do I make it global? Many thanks.

          Sorry, it may just have been a cacheing issue. It seems ok now —though I do have one other question: the different lines in your code appear to apply to different levels in the menu. On that site, which is “#top-menu” and which is “li ul”/”li li ul”?
          Many thanks.
