[resolved] Why Don't Plugin Menus Work? (2 posts)

    please help!

    i have tried 3 different page-menu plugins. none of them display dropdown menus in my sidebar. i only get my unordered page-list. any guesses as to why? seems to be an issue with my theme, but i don't know what. these menus don't work when i embed them in pages, either.

    demo of problem:
    my demo (see sidebar)

    menu plugins used:
    Multi-Level Nav (formerly Suckerfish)

    wp_jquery_dropdown

    jquery acco

    php:
    i am using the php code widget. but my results were the same when i tried the phpexec plugin. the php seems to work, otherwise i would not get the unordered lists from embedded wp_pages function.

    javascript:
    see the bottom of my demo sidebar for a javascript test, which works.

    my theme was missing wp_head from between the HEAD tags.

    Added <?php wp_head(); ?> before the <body> tag in the theme and it started working correctly.

    here's the technical explanation:
