Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Category drop down list settings question

  • Resolved tisenberg

    First off, the link to my home page is a Firearms and Ammunition store front, if you are at work, it may or may not be company policy issue.

    On my home page, upper left side, there is a product category drop down menu that allows the user to select a product category to view. I placed a category tag cloud below it (unrelated). I added the category drop down menu/list a long time ago, probably prior to my existing theme. I have been through the system over and over and can’t find where that has been turned on. My theme has one and if I turn that one on, I end up with two. WooCommerce appears to have something as well, but different.

    I have looked at the Menu settings and it does not show as a side bar item.

    Two things.
    1) Where is this category drop down on/off setting?
    2) The reason I ask is, when I scroll the page down, if I re-expand it after it auto-closes, the fly out sub-categories goes behind the main page content and make it unusable. Since fixing this is probably hard, I’d rather just turn it off (#1 above) and possible turn on one from my theme instead.

  • The category dropdown has “thunk” in its class names. This is part of the theme author’s name, so the dropdown is coming from your theme.

    Specifically, its coming from sidebar-primary.php, and there seems to be no way to turn it off other than not having a sidebar.

    To fix the issue, try this custom css:

    #sidebar-primary {
      z-index: 99;
    }

    Custom css can be entered at:
    Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS

    If it works for you, you could report the issue on the theme support forum so the authors can fix it fully on the next theme update.

    I found this CSS in the topstore forums and it works! Thank you for getting me pointed in the right direction.

    .menu-category-list {
    display:none!important;
    }

    The list doesn’t fly out now, and its lost its hierachial nature. Did you try my recommendation?

    I turned off that theme category drop down list with the CSS code above and turned on a generic one since it was not working properly. The one I’m using now is single column based with no expansion and kind’a plain/ugly šŸ™‚

    Oh… and to your question, your CSS didn’t work. I found the different CSS above from the theme forum and it worked. I tried a few variations on yours and did inspect and couldn’t get it to work. The one I pasted above worked instantly. I was only able to figure it out because of your CSS tip. THANKS!!!

    Yes the category list you have at the moment doesn’t look as good or behave as good as the theme one. If you would like to remove the WooCommerce widget, remove the css from the Top Store forums and put my non-working suggestion back in, I can try to debug it. Its working for me.

    If you want to move on, fair enough.

    AMAZING!!!! You sir are a genius! Thank you. It appears to be fixed now. I didn’t realize you were provided a fix for the z order until I looked more closely at it, I thought you gave me CSS to turn it off LOL.
