Support » Themes and Templates » Drop Down Menu woes – child level appears in main level and in header

  • Hello,

    I was working on a theme and all fine until I added child pages. All of a sudden I discovered the theme had drop down menus (great! I could use those). HOWEVER, they are not working. The child levels are appearing inthe main menu bar, and in the header and are displayed fixed. In other words, it´s a mess … take a look at

    I´ve looked in the header.php and style.css files but couldn´t find anything about the menus. Could anyone point me in the right direction on how to fix this or where to get better code for the drop-down menus?

    Thanks so much!

  • What is the template you used for the base theme?

    I would look at that and compare it to yours. See if anything is not being included.

    For example, I looked and there is no jquery (or similar) being loaded.


    the base theme is swanky.

    I didn’t make many modifications to it. What is a jquery? Is there a standard template I should look and compare to make sure my theme has?


    Ok after looking at the source behind the base these there is no CSS in place that supports drop downs.

    What is happening in your theme is just a result of sub list items getting displayed.

    So your options are either to turn off displaying sub pages (via depth), see

    Or do some other wizardry to add drop down support yourself – but I looked at the CSS and there is no support in that template.


    Thanks so much for looking. I didn’t expect that this template had drop down menus, so was surprised when the appeared. Thanks for the suggestions – will look into both.
