    I’ve put my main navigation menu in the side bar so it is vertical and I wanted to make the menu items look like buttons. I’ve almost achieved it with this bit of css

    .main-nav a {
    margin-bottom: 5% !important;
    text-align: center !important;
    border:solid #00991c 2px;
    border-radius: 26px;
    background-color: #e6ffea;
    }

    But I’ve got a problem with long wording where the buttons are very big.
    screen grab of buttons

    I’ve put a <br/> in where I want the line to break but it doesn’t seem to have had any effect. I also tried altering the padding but it didn’t impact on the space between the lines.

    Is there a way to narrow the space between the lines? Or is there a better way of achieving the look?

    Thanks

    Try this:

    .main-navigation .main-nav li a {
        line-height: normal;
    }

    Hi Tom

    I had to add !important to get it to work, but it is now – thanks.
