Appearance > Menus and Drop Downs (5 posts)

    Do WordPress' Appearance > Menus work with any drop down widgets? The Starkers theme supports Menus, and Menus show for Starkers' navigation menu. BUT I'm unable to get Menus to show for the drop down widgets I've tried - Multi-level Navigation by PixoPoint and Dropdown Menu Widget.

    Any ideas?

    hmm, not sure you need a widget to get a drop down menu, this should be a CSS controlled item.

    do you have a link?

    Also do you have your Appearance > Menus set up correctly? You need to have your sub menu items (drop down menu items) indented underneath the main menu item:

    Main Menu Item #1
    Sub Menu Item #1
    Sub Menu Item #2
    Main Menu Item #2
    Sub Menu Item #3

    Hopefully that gives you the idea. You need to drag the sub menu item underneath the main menu item you want it to show under. It should indent if you play with it a little.

    Also does your theme support the menus?

    Here's a general page about the menus:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Appearance_Menus_Screen

    Here's a page about adding support to your theme:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Navigation_Menus

    This page talks about adding the placement of the menu to the theme:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_nav_menu

    Even if you get all that in the right place, you'll still need your CSS to handle the drop down menus.

    If you have a link that is really helpful. If not, you might use pastebin.com to copy your entire HTML page code and link to it here so people can trouble shoot it. (Please don't paste your entire page code here, use pastebin).

    Hello ahuggins,

    Thank you for your assistance. Here is the pastebin HTML page code: http://pastebin.com/xTNU1jLp

    The theme is Starkers, and it does support Menus. The Menus show when I use the Starkers navigation menu stand-alone, but they do not show when I activate a drop down widget. The widgets display the pages.

    The navigation code is automatically generated by the widget, "Dropdown Menu Widget."

    Thanks again,
    Aimee

    Resolved: as ahuggins replied, the drop down needed to be CSS based.

    I was just about to try to look into this more and I see you have figured it out. Glad to hear that.
