Support » Themes and Templates » Drop Down Menu

  • I have the theme “Vigilance”, but I can’t seem to figure out how to do a drop down menu. Do some themes allow it and some don’t? I just clicked a link on my site that is supposed to have 4 sublinks but they don’t show up in “Vigilance”.

    Is this the theme or is there a way to do it?

  • theme dosent support subpages:

    <?php wp_list_pages('depth=1&title_li='); ?>

    depth=1 – changing/removing that would include the subpages but you would need to also add CSS and javascript to give the drop down functionality

    its a really nice clean theme

    So are you saying that I won’t be able to do a drop down?

    No – he didn’t say that. He said you could edit the PHP to allow it, but would ALSO need to add some CSS and javascript:) There ARE ways to do it entirely in CSS, but you’d need to visit a CSS site to get the code.


    Vigilance really isn’t set up for a drop down menu but you could do some customization and get it working. If you do be sure to use a child theme so you can keep upgrading the theme without overwriting your changes.

    Really Really think hard about having a drop down menu – imo and that of 99% of all webdevelopers, they are counter productive to a fluid webuser experience.

    Hiding navigation elements from your visitors is never a good idea unless you 100% have to and can’t create room elsewhere.

    But honestly, what bussiness are you running that needs more than 6-8 pages in a navigation menu?

    I don’t know a single person on the face of the earth that likes to “guess” what a website might be hiding in a navigation menu – I hate them when I see them on websites. Unless you are already at the lvl of – DONT use a drop down menu.

    I need a news template with lots of drop down menus that I can add a weighted Business Directory (with drop down menus) and a classified directory with lots of drop down menus. Anyone give me a hand?
