Couple issues I have questions about

Featured Lock Resolved
I currently use News ii and moving to SportsOn, I already got answers to a couple questions but a have several more I am in need of information for.

With the template it loads the K2 categories menu above the content and the site menu at the very top of the page. I have done away with the site menu at the top of the page and where the K2 categories menu is I want to replace is but have found something out. If you change this out to a menu and change the background the background bleeds to the edges of the page unlike the category menu only shows the background color to the edge of the template. So how do I add the menu in without the background color bleeding to the edges of the browser or how to I setup the categories so that as someone hovers over them a drop down is shown for the multiple sub-categories.

The second issue I have encountered is when I enable "Top Stories" News Show SP2 plugin and link it to my K2 categories it breaks the entire template where I only see the 5 stories I want displayed on the main page and everything else is broken or no longer displays. How exactly do you fix this issue so when the "Top Stories" are enabled they show under the main position and doesn't break the entire template.

Make it more simple and write the code on theme.less file.

#sp-menu{background: #9E0000}

Hi, can you please show us the problem live? I mean we want to see the menu problem to guide you properly.

We will also provide you a solution for the top stories.

Forgive me for taking a day to get back with you on this, and thank you for response on this. Below is the address for the site where you can see the menu color bleeding to the edges of the browser instead of lining up with the edges of the template. I have looked at this in IE, Chrome, and Firefox with the same results.

Once you see the issue and are able to guide me through a fix, I will then enable Top Stories and let you see what happens to the site when it's enabled.

Please let me know how to fix the color bleeding issue first.

Thank you.

For this go to layout builder -> Find the row categories -> click gear icon -> on custom class field add class container.

See the screen shot also.

That is currently how it's already set. Attached are the screenshots of my current settings. One of the things I had to do was change the background color in order to see the menu. It seems that when it's set for Categories in the layout it's fine with being a transparent background, but when you change it to menus are in my case the background truly is transparent and I had to change the color just in order to be able to see the test in the menu.

Attached is the screenshot of what it looks like when you add the menu into the categories layout with transparent background.

The background color from template manager applies only main row. So, delete background color from there and write the css on preset.less file.

#sp-categories-wrapper #categories{background:#9E0000}


For News Show Sp2 make sure that you have image on every k2 item. I try to check from K2 item but you have an error on your site. Your memory limit is low. Increase it 128M.

I guess I am not doing it right. I looked in presets.less and replaced with the following. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong or if this is the wrong place to add what you sent to me.

/*-- Categories Menu Start--*/
#sp-categories-wrapper{
#sp-categories{
background: @major_color;
}
}
/*-- Categories Menu End--*/

With

/*-- Categories Menu Start--*/
#sp-categories-wrapper #categories{background:#9E0000}
}
/*-- Categories Menu End--*/
