Forums: Admin Central Index General Questions Level 2 Menu too wide

I've been trying to add some links to my navigation menu, but I always get a message about my Level 2 menu being too wide. So far, I've found nothing that explains what to do about this, and I'm getting frustrated. Sorry if this has the most obvious solution, but I'm not that good with coding or anything like that. My Wikia is Time Squad Wikia.

When editing your wiki navigation, there are 3 different "levels" of links:
*Level 1 link has 1 asterisk
**Level 2 link has 2 asterisks
***Level 3 link has 3 asterisks
You are only allowed to have 5 level 1 links. Each of those level 1 links can have as many as 7 level 2 links. And each of those level 2 links can have as many as 10 level 3 links.
If your level 2 menu is too wide, that means you have too many level 2 links somewhere, or the text for your level 2 links is so long that it makes the level 2 menu go out-of-bounds. You need to make sure that you're not using too many level 2 links (with 2 asterisks) to solve this problem.
There is a help page for editing wiki navigation at Help:Wiki navigation, you may also want to read that and see if it helps. 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 05:50 UTC, Sunday, 7 October 2012
Wow, that actually clarified a LOT for me- I never knew it was like a subtopic kind of thing. I thought it was like you can have a total of 7 level 2 links on it. Thank you! =D
