[Wordpress] Problem with the stylish of the submenu! HELP please!


George Silence Panayi

Hello every one! i having a problem using the ddsmoothmenu javascript code on my wordpress website. the problem is that i having wrong dimensions on the sub menu here you can see in the image


here the code of the java script

//** Smooth Navigational Menu- By Dynamic Drive DHTML code library: http://www.dynamicdrive.com
//** Script Download/ instructions page: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/ddlevelsmenu/
//** Menu created: Nov 12, 2008

//** Dec 12th, 08" (v1.01): Fixed Shadow issue when multiple LIs within the same UL (level) contain sub menus: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39177&highlight=smooth

//** Feb 11th, 09" (v1.02): The currently active main menu item (LI A) now gets a CSS class of ".selected", including sub menu items.

//** May 1st, 09" (v1.3):
//** 1) Now supports vertical (side bar) menu mode- set "orientation" to 'v'
//** 2) In IE6, shadows are now always disabled

//** July 27th, 09" (v1.31): Fixed bug so shadows can be disabled if desired.

var ddsmoothmenu={

//Specify full URL to down and right arrow images (23 is padding-right added to top level LIs with drop downs):
arrowimages: {down:['downarrowclass', 'down.gif', 0], right:['rightarrowclass', 'right.gif',0]},
