Support » Themes and Templates » Problem with Green Apples 2-row Menu Dropdown

  • Resolved RMCPiper


    I am very pleased with the Green Apples theme with one exception. I have enough pages requiring two rows at the top level and with several having dropdowns in the menu to daughter pages. I’m unable to navigate to the daughter pages from the top row because the mouse selects the top level page on the second row as I move to select one of those in the dropdown list.

    I’m new to WordPress and CSS so please forgive me if the answer is obvious. I’ve been doing software since the mid 1960’s, trying for zero defects, in public safety and emergency response. I’m very excited about the power and flexibility which this platform provides.

    The blog which has the problem is behind a barrier right now although I hope to release it very soon. I hope that the description is adequate but would be pleased to provide more information if requested.

    Thanks in advance,
    Alan BUrke

  • Although the site may be “behind a barrier” a link to the theme’s download would be helpful until you open your site up.

    That being said … and working from the point that the theme correctly handles multiple line menus and drop down effects …

    I’ve found locating the correct CSS ‘hover’ element handling the drop-down effect and adding a ‘z-index’ value (generally 1000 is fine, you may neeed to experiment higher) will solve the issue of the lower lines of the menu taking precedence over the drop-down sub-menu items of the line above.

    Good Luck!

    That did it Edward. Thanks! I hope I’ll be able to return the favour one day. The barrier in this case is an idiosyncracy of my network configuration (sitting on the 2nd router cascaded off the first, which is connected to the Internet). I hope to solve that problem very soon and invite you to have a look, once that’s solved, at

    Best wishes,

    You’re welcome! Glad I was able to help.
    I’ve come across that issue a few times while doing Theme reviews.
