Drop Down Menu Not working (12 posts)

    I'm a newbie.

    I just learned how to created a drop down menu for my page. It was working fine unil tonight. Now there is a horizontal space between the main category and the first drop down menu. The drop down menu appears but when I move my cursor to the options it disappears. I didn't change any coding(I wouldn't of known how), it just stopped working.

    Please help.

    To the best of your knowledge, were any changes whatsoever made, either to the theme file, or your menus, or something else anywhere on your site? It seems unlikely that such a change would appear out the blue, but it might be possible that your browser had cached an old stylesheet and that cache file expired....

    Is there a URL you can point us to that exhibits this behavior? Unfortunately, without further information, I'm unable to diagnose what could be the issue. =/

    Ok, thanks for the info. May need to give this a bit more testing, but making the following code change appears to resolve the issue:

    In styles.css, in #access ul ul
    Remove "top: 18px;" (line 427)
    (Appears to work in Chrome latest, Firefox latest, and IE 7+)

    It looks like having two lines of menu items with that particular theme is causing weird side effects by pushing the menus down further than where they should be. Getting rid of that line should resolve the issue by letting the browser's default positioning take control of the menu's placement.

    Dunno what the effect of removing that CSS rule and scaling the menu back to one line would be. If doing both actions causes regression, adding the CSS line back in might fix the issue again.

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks for the info. It's over my head though. It's me...not you :)
    When you say line 427 do I count to find that line? I think I can find the "style" area but after that I'm lost.
    I'm so scared to take things out...

    the drop down menu doesn't work. I cannot click on choices (see menu voice "movimento")

    what does it depend on?

    I seem to be having a similiar problem, I went to change menu and now now my drop down is not working. It was working fine? I defiantly have not changed coding as I wouldn't know how to... I have just upgraded to the latest w/p edition, thinking that might help? It hasn't.
    I have tried redoing the whole menu...
    Can anybody help a novice?
