This one will work Bernhardt...

<!--

<style type="text/css">
.ys_heading{
display:none
}

div.ys_menu ul { clear:both;
background:url(http://s3.yolacdn.net/V0021424/templa...) center top no-repeat;
_behavior: url(http://s1.yolacdn.net/V0021424/templa...;
float:left;
height:41px;
margin:110px 0 0 0;
padding:0 15px;
list-style:none;
}

</style>

-->

If you want the buttons higher or lower simply adjust the 110px on the margin accordingly...

Happy site building
Ed

Glad that it worked for you...

Thanks for the compliment... LOL I think that you would have thought otherwise had you seen my site in the first few weeks of construction. The site is far more than I ever dreamed or hoped for when I began Honey Bear Playhomes all those years ago.

I think that I can say with a good amount of certainty that I have probably broken my pages more than anybody else with the vast amounts of questionable coding that I have used in the past. We're talking near a hundred times and at least a dozen of those were index page rebuilds. I learned from each and every one of them and was able to pass the fixes along to others as the problem arose for them.

Sometimes it can truly be a nightmare to change the tiniest of things as that one thing needs to be carried over to all of the other pages without so much as a pixel of difference. Thank god I figured out that back door fix for that one or my site would not have continuity from page to page with the identical banners and footers. The banner alone has nearly 19,000 characters with dozens of widgets and layers upon layers. Still blown away that it all works well together.

Boomer it seems an eternity since I had that 3 page website with no text and images which were made in publisher that were more posters than anything. LOL no searchable text as the text was all contained in the images. The images were so NOT optimized and had to have been 3MB each which took forever to load.

Funny how we two have grown huh? Getting out to SA and meeting a few of my old friends is surely on my bucket list. ;)

Off to sleep now that I added the larger Addthis buttons on all my pages. The smaller ones had only 25% of the action of the larger ones. 3:44AM and off to bed. ;)

By the way Boomer I have to pat you on the back with how great your site has turned out. ;) Glad that you got out of your shell when you did and started your building spree all those years ago. Totally professional site man. ;)

I never saw that one. The first one I saw was back in 2008, and it already had the floating clouds flash, I think. 2008, geez that takes me back. We've come a long way since then?

3:44AM? What do you put in your cocoa man? (besides the honey)

I think that it was motivation mate as you needed that kick from behind to get yourself off the bench so to speak.

You know the piss-er for me... I have one of the top sites in the world for anything to do with custom playhouse builders and should be earning nearly a grand a day in commissioned sales but with the economy still in the toilet the site has not performed well even a month out of these past 4 years. I am on the first page in hundreds and hundreds of keywords and phrases and nada...nothin...

People just don't buy the luxury items anymore. I see an increase in searches which gives me hope but the news about a double dip in the recession possibly on the horizon is truly sad news for me.

I cannot physically do the building anymore and switched my site to more of a referral site to a kit playhouse building company in hopes that it will help me in the long haul and still I get the middle finger by the man upstairs.

Don't know if I am gonna weather this tide man... I don't feel it in me as it has taken a great toll on my health. Hope I'm wrong. ;)

I cannot believe that I had the add the hyphen in piss-er as the forums called it profanity and wouldn't allow it to post.

I hope things work out for you, bud. God knows you've put in the hours. Hang in there. That middle finger will turn into a thumbs up soon, Im sure. Anyway, I goto go to the mall to get a few things for tonight. It's my birthday today you see. I'll have a hot cocoa for you later... yeh sure ;-)

Sorry to hijack your thread, Bernhardt.

Hmmm if I had a face forward image of you I would do some creative birthday card artwork but seeing as how I don't I'll just wish you a great B-day my friend... How old are you anyway?

If I told you how old I was I would have to use lots of dashes between the words, otherwise GS would concider it profanity. Kidding... thanks bud.
