Support » Fixing WordPress » Menus not showing children in drop down

  • Resolved wildbug


    This is the second theme I’ve tried where the children of my parent categories are not showing up in a drop down menu correctly. They are now appearing on top of each other in a big mess: see site.

    Here is the code in the header.php for the navigation menu:

    <div id="nav">
    			<li <?php if(!is_page()) echo 'class="current_page_item"'; ?>><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/">Home</a></li>
    			<?php wp_list_pages('title_li='); ?>
    		<a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" id="feed">Subscribe</a>

    What can I do to make the subcategories display in a drop down menu? Thank you.

    The theme is using the plugin for dropdown menu. Maybe there’s an issue with that. You’re using the latest WordPress and the plugin is compatible up to 2.9.

    Why don’t you give TwentyTen a try. The dropdown menu works like a champ.

    I only added the plugin after I wrote this post. It did not solve my problem. I removed it so you can see it had nothing to do with the issue. I like this theme and would like to stick with it. If anyone can advise how to fix the drop down menu so the subcategories are in a drop down I would appreciate it. Isn’t there a standard way to implement it? Seems like it would be a fairly easy fix, but I am not a programmer unfortunately! Thanks to anyone who can help!

    I changed the code to specify column depth of 1. That fixed the messiness (words displayed on top of other words) but still did not give me a drop down menu. How do you get the pages to display properly? Thanks!
    <?php wp_list_pages('depth=1&title_li='); ?>

    Well I decided to change those two main pages into categories and use a sidebar widget to display them. That works just as good for me. If anyone knows the answer to the drop down menu issue, please post. I am still curious and might need it for another site one day soon. Thanks.

    I originally had my code written where my sub menus dropped down. But recently I deleted that option. In turn a whole extra menu with the sub menus appeared at the bottom of each and everyone of my pages. How do I delete this extra set of menu links appearing on my site. is the link… HELLPP MEEE PLEASE!!!!!
