    Need help styling charity site please?

    Hey guys, here's our Charity site:

    http://silent-angels.net/


    I had 6 pages in the Nav bar all evenly spread out with equal distance between each page name, now I added a 7th page [Success Stories] and this automatically added a second row, I tried adjusting the margin and padding values but not getting all 7 pages to fit horizontally in one line in the Nav bar, please see CSS code below, any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.
    Code:
    body {
    background: #acacac; /* Old browsers */
    /* IE9 SVG, needs conditional override of 'filter' to 'none' */
    background: url(data:image/svg+xml;base64,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);

    Well a quick fix would be change your header2 li width.

    Change:

    Code:
    #header2 li {width: 14%;
    }
    To

    Code:
    #header2 li {
        width: 150px;
    }
    Of course if you end up adding more menu items, you'll need to adjust that px setting.

    Thank you very much! I have a few other styling to do on the new page, shall I post all questions here in this one thread or create new threads for each question?

    If they're different issues, a new thread might be best. Guess it really doesn't matter though.

    I think better I keep all things related to the site styling in one thread for future reference. Ok, please see this site here:

    http://www.wishuponahero.com/browsewish/?sort=all

    On our site, I created another page titled "Success Stories", I wish to use this page to post all causes we have helped in the past and wish to do listing in the same fashion as in the site above. What I am thinking is simply create a heading with the name of the cause eg. "Shane's Brain Surgery" then add a few lines of text below explaining Shane's predicament then use the [more] link to open up more text explaining how we were able to help Shane. I can create and style the Heading and text but how is the link to open up more paragraphs by clicking on the word "more" done please?

    Or if anyone has a better idea, I'm all ears?
