In the Menus page under Appearance, menu-item hierarchy is not displayed. Here’s a screenshot.
Architecture, Communications Design, etc are all children of Student Work, and they appear so on the front end of the site, but they are not indented when I edit the menu. This gets very confusing because it’s very easy to make, for example, Communications Design a child of Architecture by accident and not see it until the page is live.
If I drag a parent to move it, all the children will appear indented under it until I release it.
The menus page is even more glitchy in Chrome (I have to use Firefox if I want to move menu items). In Chrome, whenever I pick up a menu item, it moves down one spot on the list. It won’t let me move it up.
I would update wordpress to the latest version, but the site is sort of part of a great bureaucracy or permissions and stuff, so it’d be somewhat of a hassle.
So I updated to the latest version of wordpress and the menu page still doesn’t show indents, but it does indicate which are “sub-items” and has options for changing the hierarchy and moving items up and down with links rather than dragging and dropping.
I looked at the plugins and I think deactivating them would cause problems with the site, so I am going to just leave the situation as it is now.
