[resolved] Dropdown menu in twentyten is blank (12 posts)

    Using twentyten wordpress theme, and using drop-down menu that comes with it. See it here - http://zwebhome.com/columban2/

    But the drop-down part of this menu is blank. It recognizes something should be there, but doesn't show it or maintain the dropdown when you follow the blank box with your mouse.

    Suggestions?

    Have you added submenu items by dragging and indenting them below the main menu element in Admin>>>appearance>>>menus

    They are there is that you using white fonts for you menu and background is white so you can not see them.
    change the background if you want white fonts.

    Thanks for the help. Why does the drop-down portion (the white box) go away when I try to drag my mouse over it?

    If it's simply white font on white background, wouldn't it would just stay there and not be readable?

    That is because you have a little space between the menu-bar and drop down to get did of that space in style.css change this line 395

    #access a {
    color:#FFFFFF;
    display:block;
    font-weight:bold;
    line-height:30px;
    padding:0 12px;
    text-decoration:none;

    change that 30px to 35px.

    change that 30px to 35px.

    Change the one above it like this one and you will have brown bar with brown dropdown with white fonts

    #access ul li.current_page_item > a, #access ul li.current-menu-ancestor > a, #access ul li.current-menu-item > a, #access ul li.current-menu-parent > a {
    background:#810D0D none repeat scroll 0 0;
    color:#FFFFFF;
    }
    style.css
    #access a {
    color:#FFFFFF;
    display:block;
    font-weight:bold;
    line-height:35px;
    padding:0 12px;
    text-decoration:none;

    I got it to work. Had to do some other tweaking, but the main part, the line-height, was a perfect fit at 38px.

    A huge thanks.

    Hurraahhh Finally after three month puzzling and even trying plugins with many errors, grace to this post.... Thank you very much.

    One has to drag the subpagemenuitems a few millimetrs to the right to get sub menu items!!!!

    Why is that kept so secret????
