I'm having this strange glitch with a nav menu obtianed through wp_nav_menu().
The function returns the menu correctly in every situation except for when the query string in an ARCHIVE request includes the 'cat' parameter. For example:
I have a custom post type 'Stories' for which the archive is just myhomeurl.com/story. For this page, wp_nav_menu() will return the menu correctly and as such will display as it should.
But if I want to see just the stories with a certain category (i.e. myhomeurl.com/story/?cat=5), then wp_nav_menu() will not return anything. It's not a display issue, it is just that wp_nav_menu() will not return any markup.
I have no idea what could be causing this, all I have been able to figure out is those conditions: in an archive with the category parameter set in the query string.
Just in case it is relevant, I am using a customized child theme of the 'Responsive' theme.
Unfortunately this is a local build so I can't really link to the site itself, I hope that is not an issue.
Thank you in advance for any help.
