Support » Fixing WordPress » can’t add subpages

  • Hi,
    My problem is that I have created subpages under parent pages and would like them to appear in a dropdown menu on navigation bar. I believe I have nested pages properly by just giving them a parent. To show subpages on Nav bar with my theme-swift I need to enter the subpage ids that I want to be visible but there are no subpage ids to view in Nav bar, only page ids.

    Any ideas what my problem might be?

    Appreciate any help, thank you.

  • You can find all page id’s in the Admin/Page screen when you hove rover the page title in the list and look at your browsers status bar at the bottom. If you click edit the number also shows in your browsers navigation bar (top).I am not familiar with the plugin Navbar.

    Hi, thanks for your quick response. When I hover I see the page id at the bottom, but I have it set up as a subpage with a parent(it shows a dash before the page). Shouldn’t i see the subpage Id on bottom too?

    I don’t think that the page ID changes, whether it’s a parent or child. Use the page ID, it should work fine, and still remain a “child of”.

    Okay, page id is what you see at bottom for both page and sub pages. Thank you that helps so much!

    So now my problem is with entering the page id so it shows up on home page. For my theme (swift) I have to go into general settings/Navigation pages to type page ids I want shown. When I type in parent ids they work great but none of the subpage ids i put in show up. Do you know if I need to enter subpages in in a special way (like after a parent page put a dash or something) or do you usually just list the numbers between commas like you do with parent ids, becaue that won’t work.

    appreciate your time and help!!

    Sorry, I am not familiar with the plugin Navbar. Try asking the author or visit the plugins-author page.

    I am having a problem with the navigation bar in Swift Theme. It is disappering behind images and i can’t figure out where I should go to fix it. I think it has something to do with a z value. You can see the problem at And I am viewing it in ie8. Thanks! Martin
