Setting Nav bar width? Hrlp16

Had an idea for changing the look of my forum, I have moved the Nav bar to the top of my page (image above, code below).

Code:
#page-header .navbar {
  position:absolute;
  top:0;
  left:0;
  right:0;
}

But my question is how can I set the width of my Nav Bar? I want to match the forums width (1291px).

Thanks in advance for any help

You can add the
Code:
width
property :
Code:
width:1291px;

but you'll need to drop the
Code:
right
property. If you set both the left and right to 0 the containing element will span the width of the webpage instead. You might need to make a few adjustments afterwards, because the navbar will be off center due to the left property being set to 0.

Thanks for the reply, I have tired that, and found the width required for my pc resolution (left 300px), but then when viewing it on my laptop (smaller resolution) is is off centre because there is not a 300px margin at the left side.

Is there any code so you dont need to adjust the margins, but can just tell it to centre?

Hello,
You can change the position on your css code from absolute to relative.

Example:
Code:

        #page-header .navbar {
          position:relative;
          top:0;
          left:0;
          right:0;
          width: 1291px;
        }
