Responsiveness top menu bar

Hi,

I installed the precompiled forum software and at the moment I am modifying the stylesheet etc. to meet the standards of our website.

One of the things I would like to achieve is to make the top menu bar responsive to the width of the browser's window. What I would like to achieve is that when you make the window's width (horizontally) narrower, the most right menu items that don't fit on the first line anymore are moved to the second line.

So for example on this forum you normally have this:
| Checker | Begin | Profile | Start New Topic | Favorites | Search | Statistics | File Bank | Manual | Logout |

And after narrowing down the window I would like to get something like this:

| Checker | Begin | Profile | Start New Topic | Favorites | Search | Statistics
| File Bank | Manual | Logout |


Anyone knows how I can manage to do this?

I suppose you could try to replace & nbsp; in menu items to just an empty space, at the position where you'd like a menu item breaking to a new line. For example, putting it before {$l_sepr} but leaving after it should always keep the starting {$l_sepr} before a menu item.

Thanks. And bingo, it worked!
In the stylesheet in td.capMenu I greyed out white-space:nowrap;. This was basically already the answer to my question. But a new problem occured: menu items which consisted of more than 1 word (like "Personal Messages") only partially, i.e. word by word, moved to the second line. That's why I added &nbsp between the words in such menu items in the language-file. And now the menu bar is perfectly responsive!

Good to know it works, thanks; perhaps I may consider of adding the same to the official version, worth having it without extra mods.
