Hi mcharalambous and welcome to css,
It does make sense! I'm just not sure of the exact source of the issue. What happens when you set the desired background-color on the sub-nav elements (or the element creating the "bar", then change it to white on :hover? Also are you sure the sub-nav/other element has been hidden so it only becomes visible on :hover?
