[resolved] Custom menu - drop down issues (11 posts)

    I have searched the forums for an answer to my problem, and couldn't find it.

    I am working on a site with a custom theme and a custom menu. The drop downs in the menu disappear in one section when you rollover them, and overlap in another section.

    Here is the site link: http://www.yournashvilleplasticsurgeon.com.php53-7.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/

    Any ideas?
    Please and thanks!

    Hi Jaimie,

    The browser can't find this file: /wp-content/uploads/2012/11/ticker00.js.

    So you're getting a js error thrown when you call functions in it. I'd start there.

    I also saw that you're trying to reference it with a "./". Try enqueueing your javascript the "WordPress way" in your functions.php.


    function my_js_include_function()

    So you see what's going on here, your sub-submenu is overlapping the submenu because there aren't any styles to tell it otherwise.
    Here's an example of styling the sub-submenu otherwise;

    #nav ul ul ul {
     left: 220px;

    If the problem persists from the JavaScript error pointed out by Andrew Bartel, you ought to fix that and not add a quick-CSS-fix .

    Muchas gracias A. Bartel and A. Nevins!

    I am going to try to find that .js file and see if that does the trick. If not, then I will go with the CSS, and let you both know.

    Thanks again!

    Well, bad news, the .js file didn't affect the drop downs. Still having some overlapping and disappearing issues.

    I used CSS to get the drop downs to not overlap each other.

    Now, the drop downs under "Skin Rejuvenation" and "Our Practice" aren't showing up at all. I tried using the z-index syntax and no progress.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    I can see those menus.
    I am using the latest version of Chrome on Windows.

    Try clearing your browser cache.

    I cleared my cache in Chrome, Firefox and IE. I still only see the first drop down. There should be a second drop down like the "Plastic Surgery" and "Before & After" tabs.

    It doesn't seem as though "Skin Rejuvenation" has a submenu branching off it;

    Wow. /facepalm Sorry, I over-looked that.

    I am doing maintenance on pre-built sites, so I don't usually have all the info I need. That would be a bit of info that I needed.

    Thank you for your help!
