    Hi,
    So we’re trying to shortcode-link / embed a menu into another menu.. not having much luck. trying this plugin nothing shows up at all.. this is being added in a sub-page menu under the main page

    i.e.
    parent page
    – > sub-pages menu’s shortcode (with full html enabled) <— doesn’t show anything

    I tried it in both primary menu, as well as secondary menu, with both methods(adding via shortcode and custom link) and it worked without an issue.

    Here’s a screencast of the same:

    Sorry, I missed the part where you said, you tried to do it as sub menu item, tested it as well, and it also works, here’s screencast:

    Now will be attempting to add all your active plugins, in order to see if any of those is interfering with the working of the plugin.

    (@gagan0123)

    Tested with all plugins active(only a few I couldn’t find from wordpress.org), and yet, it works as it should, here’s the screencast:

    What is the shortcode you’re trying to add?

    the short code is list of of pages generated by either Nested Pages or SB Child List [sb_child_list] for example
    generally outputs an ul / li list of urls

    another example of that shortcode in use is the page listing at https://www.yugioh-world.com/the-video-games/

    I figured out the issue, its not with this plugin, but with SB Child List plugin’s default settings.

    I’ve created a screencast so you can integrate it easily. All you need to do is, in SB Child List settings, change the value of “Child List Start Template” from <ul> to <a href="#">Child Pages</a><ul> and it will show the output as expected.

    ok still not working

    Checking it out, from the output on your site, from initial overview, I can see, this plugin is sending the correct output on your site, but for some reason, the submenu is not being rendered correctly.
