Custom HTML/CSS falling apart in theme.

    I tried building a custom overview in the awake template. I have build it externally before I put it in the template and it looks like this:

    However, as soon as want to integrate it in the template it seems to fall apart:

    So far I have found out that it must be some sort of problem when I wrap the list elements in tags. Because without the link tags it actually stays in shape:

    I have tried all day but couldn't get it solved.

    Main code I used in my orginial:


    <div class="lernLesson">
    			<a href=""><li>Geschichte von Scrum <img src="checkmark.png"/></li></a>
    			<a href=""><li>Das Scrum-Ger&#252st <span>open</span></li></a>
    			<a href=""><li>Die Scrum-Rollen <span>open</span> </li></a>
    			<a href=""><li>Der Scrum Fluss <span>open</span> </li></a>
    			<a href=""><li id="LessonEnd">Die Scrum Artefakte <img src="checkmark.png"/> </a>


    .lernLesson ul a li {
    		margin-bottom: 2px;
    		background-color: #FAF4CD;
    		height: 35px;<br />
    		padding: 10px 0 0 10px;
    		font-family: "Helvetica Neue", Arial, sans-serif;
    		font-size: 12px;
    		text-decoration: none;
    <p>			.lernLesson ul li:hover {
    			background-color: #F5C253;
    			text-decoration: none;
    			font-weight: 900;
    			#LessonEnd {
    			border-bottom-left-radius: 5px;
    			border-bottom-right-radius: 5px;

    Any idea what else I could try in order to keep it from falling apart?

    Hello Truthans,

    Make sure you paste the code into the HTML editor and not the Visual editor.

    Yes, that's what I did. At least I thought so.

    Try deleting it and pasting it again and try surrounding it with [raw] [/raw] tags.

    Found the solution:
    The link tags should go inside the li tags. That keeps the whole thing together. In order to make the whole link element clickable I added display: block to the ul a class. Works now. Thanks.
