WP Twenty Twelve Navigation Display

Posted by: admin November 30, 2017 Leave a comment


How do I make the sub-navigation links in the default Twenty Twelve WordPress theme display over the wrapper/container?

enter image description here


<nav id="site-navigation" class="main-navigation" role="navigation">
    <h3 class="menu-toggle"><?php _e( 'Menu', 'twentytwelve' ); ?></h3>
        <a class="assistive-text" href="#content" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Skip to content', 'twentytwelve' ); ?>"><?php _e( 'Skip to content', 'twentytwelve' ); ?></a>
        <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'primary', 'menu_class' => 'nav-menu' ) ); ?>


.site-content nav {
    clear: both;
    overflow: hidden;
.main-navigation .assistive-text:hover,
.main-navigation .assistive-text:active,
.main-navigation .assistive-text:focus {
    background: #fff;
    border: 2px solid #333;

I think you shloud try removing the overflow: hidden from .site
