[Resolved] Level 3 seems to be broken
wp_nav_menu(array(‘theme_location’ => ‘primary’,
‘level’ => ‘3’,
‘depth’ => 1));
does not show the correct level 3 menu-items of the current level 2 page.
In a menu structure like:
the result of ‘level’ => ‘3’,’depth’ => 1 is always “Item_A” regardless which Level_2 Item/Page is active. Even the Page on Level 1 shows “Item_A”.
do i miss something ?
Well, I am the author and even I am confused 🙂
Sorry for the super-late response.
I am going to to look into this right now.
I understand the use-case:
It is strange that it shows the first level 3 item it can find. From a level 1 perspective all level 3 items should be equal. Just as you expect to show all sub-levels. But asking for a sub-sub level is a different matter.
The design was to show the children of a current active branch in a sub-location. So, from that perspective it works. But what you want is show all level 3 from the current active branch.
So, the plugins works correctly and you just introduces a new use-case to me. I could try and think of something in lines of new parameter that ignores sub-sub levels and fetches all requested levels that have a similar ancestor not just the parent.
For now I am marking this as resolved, but the feature request is noted!
thanks for your answer.
my example does not show the result (output) i want but only the underlying menu structure.
based on this example my usecase would be:
if i am on the page based on “Level_2-Item_3” then “Item_B” should be the level 3 child of the active branch. but with ‘level’ => ‘3’,’depth’ => 1 is does show “Item_A” which is wrong because it is a child of the (inactive) “Level_2-Item_1” branch.
basically i would expect the same behavior for childrens of level 2 like it resolves childrens of level 1 (which is working fine).
maybe it is easier to understand if we use more descriptive menu items.
if the underlying menu looks like this …
- half red
- full red
- half green
- full green
- half yellow
- full yellow
… and i navigate to “yellow” then the level 3 items of the active branch should be “half yellow” and “full yellow” but it shows only “half red”. And if i remember correctly even if you navigate to “red” then the result ist only “half red” and not both “half red” and “full red”.
Ah, like that.
I am not quite sure though how to handle some stuff here…
When you are on apples and ask for level 3, what should it show?
When you are on yellow, I can imagine it should show half yellow and full yellow.
So maybe only showing 1 level below current level is a manageable/ valid use-case and that is how levels should work: you can request a level, but only if you are one level above it, can it display.
