Specific menu items unfolding to the left


I’m using Vantage Premium. I have a menu bar with four items, each with sub menus within them. I am wondering if I can make the sub menus for ONLY the right most element in my main menu unfold to the left instead of the right. How would I modify the CSS? I have already set up a child theme.

    Hi Sage

    Not sure this is perfect but give it a try:

    Appearance > Menus click Screen Options top right. Enable the CSS Classes checkbox.
    Edit the parent link item and enter a CSS Class in the field provided of:


    Then go to Appearance > Custom CSS and add:

    /* If a class of left is added to a menu item, break drop down menu items to the left */
    .main-navigation ul li.left ul {
      left: initial;
      right: -59px;
      text-align: right;
    .main-navigation ul li.left ul ul {
      margin: 0;
      right: 100%;

    Thanks for the response Andrew. When I try that out the sub sub menu actually overlays on top of the sub menu as shown here:


    I found another solution that changed all of the sub-sub menus to display on the left:

    Make sub-menus open to left not right
    .sub-menu { 
    	left: auto !important; 
    	right: 0px !important; 
    .sub-menu .sub-menu { 
    	right: 200px !important; 

    Is there any way to apply this formatting to specific menu items?

    Thanks for the wait. Ahh ok, yeah don’t think I tested for the third level. You can swing a menu item left by inserting the class into the parent menu item CSS field so you should be able to control it that way. Has that not worked for you?
