Support » Fixing WordPress » Disable flyout (popup) menus in backend

  • Hello, I have tried to use search before posting, but unfortunately, instead of searching forums is showed me a list of plugins (is that a bug?)

    So, the question itself: In wp-admin backend, if I hover my mouse over a menu at the left, it popups with submenus. I am absolutely able to click the menu myself, if I want the submenus to show up. So I am searching a way to disable this useless feature, but I cant find out how. Any help?

    Thank you.

  • Since this is part of WordPress core, your best approach would, indeed, be to look for a suitable plugin that would suppress this behaviour. That said, I don’t see how this is a significant problem.

    I think this tweak is too small and easy to develop a full plugin for it, but anyway I cant find any of them that could help.

    And yes, this is a significant problem, when that pop-ups appear randomly and with no purpose at all, obscuring the contents of opened page, just because I am moving mouse between browser windows.

    Just need a word from someone who is more familiar with frontend, than me. I am sure it can be easily fixed

    I have finally found the solution. I have tried to make a plugin, that will execute

    <script>jQuery( ".wp-has-submenu" ).removeClass( "wp-has-submenu" );</script>

    right after adminmenu hook was fired, that disabled flyouts on hover, but they somehow keep appearing on click, even with JS completely disabled.

    That made me to think of a simpler solution, not related to JS at all, simply adding

    #adminmenuwrap {
    overflow: hidden;

    via plugin or browser custom CSS add-on solved the problem completely
