Bootstrap Dropdown on Hover Removing Styles

543

Currently I'm trying to make it so that my bootstrap dropdown happens only on hover instead of on click.

I have a 100% width dropdown all styled and ready with on click method, but when I change the CSS to make the dropdown appear on hover it seems to remove the styles or overwrite them?

Any help would be brilliant.

The HTML

<li class="dropdown">
      <a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" role="button" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false"><i class="ion-navicon icon"></i><span class="caret"></span></a>
      <ul class="dropdown-menu">
        <li>
            <a href="#">Another action</a>
            <a href="#">Another action</a>
            <a href="#">Another action</a>
            <a href="#">Another action</a>
        </li>
        <li><a href="#">Something else here</a></li>
        <li role="separator" class="divider"></li>
        <li><a href="#">Separated link</a></li>
        <li role="separator" class="divider"></li>
        <li><a href="#">One more separated link</a></li>
      </ul>
    </li>

My CSS

.nav > li.dropdown.open { position: static; }
.nav > li.dropdown.open .dropdown-menu 
{
    display:table; 
    width: 100%; 
    text-align: center; 
    left:0; 
    right:0; 
    margin-top:-1px; 
    box-shadow: none; 
    border:none;
    background:#252525;
}

.dropdown-menu>li { display: table-cell; }

But when I add the below code it instantly changes back to the original styles?

.dropdown:hover .dropdown-menu {
    display: block;
    margin-top: 0; // remove the gap so it doesn't close
 }

If it makes any difference the backend is Wordpress.

Thanks

Try this in your css file:

ul.nav li.dropdown:hover > ul.dropdown-menu {
    display: block;    
}
