I'm using magento 1.9 with a custom theme, I didn't build it, I inherited it and its a bit of a mess, but at least functional. My question is enter image description here

There is no space between 'my cart and 'checkout'

What can I do to fix this please?

I just took a quick look at your website. Go to

[your magento install dir]/skin/frontend/matt/tmd/css/styles.css

First backup this file in a safe place before making any changes. After that open the file with a proper editor.

On line 632 you will find the following code:

.account-nav li {
    padding: 5px 0px;

Replace it with:

.account-nav li {
    padding: 0 8px;

Save the file, refresh cache and go to the frontend of your website to check the result.

Please note that one of your account-nav links (the second) is empty. You should check this too!


This looks like a simple styling change. I would add some margin-left to the Checkout link to space it out from the Cart link.

This can be done in your styles file depending on your setup. You can find this in skin/frontend/YOUR THEME/YOUR PACKAGE/css/styles.css

Hope this helps,
