  • Resolved ahoyroo


    Am I correct?
    When I log in to back office, I go to Appearance, then Menus. Then I create a new Main Menu (no problem). Now I want to add a page to the menu so I tick its box on the left hand side from the list of pages. When I click ‘Add to Menu’ button, nothing happens! The circle keeps going round and round and round. What am I doing wrong?
    I’ve tried this using Google Chrome and Firefox (latest versions). Same thing happens.

    No. The Responsive theme fully supports custom menus. Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Responsive Theme does support menus 🙂

    and not just one, there’s four different positions please see the demo

    There is:

    • Top Menu
    • Primary (main menu)
    • Submenu (just after the main one)
    • Footer Menu

    what you are experiencing is most likely browser issue or even the server isn’t loading properly and of course first try what @esmi suggested above.

    If you have any questions, we’re inviting you to our support forum to get the load off WPORG 🙂

    P.S. Please don’t forget to close as resolved, once you got it working.

    Thanks for using Responsive,

    Hello Emil, Esmi,
    Thanks for your replies. I have tried various different ways to get the menu to work in the way I expected, but I couldn’t solve the issue so I have rolled back to my previous code. In ‘Responsive Theme Options > Custom CSS Styles’ I have the following code:

    .menu {margin-top: 90px; background: url( repeat-x top left;}

    .menu a {height: 28px; border: none; line-height: 28px;}

    .menu .current_page_item a {background: url( repeat-x top left;}

    Ideally, I would like the menu to span the full width of the page (like the header image above it which I have set as a custom body section background) but I don’t know how to do this. I don’t fully understand how I have a menu at all when there aren’t any set up in Appearance > Menus but as I am unlikely to need a page that doesn’t automatically appear in the menu bar I am happy with that.

    All right, so this is different from the topic title correct? Custom menu is something different in WordPress, maybe that created confusion.

    Anyways, you would like to customize the menu, by moving it toward the top and make that to be full width.

    It would be much easier if we close this topic as resolved and move to if that’s all right.

    What you basically need here is to apply absolute position and add some margins to it like:

    .menu {

    or even better, simply expand your current menu, add similar gradient to look like your menu and voila, problem solved in few minutes 🙂


    I am having trouble with menus in a Responsive theme for Buddypress. All the 4 locations for menus seem to respond to the first location. I set the top menu to “register.” saved it etc. and then I went onto the header menu. When I changed that it changed the top menu as well.

    What am I doing wrong?

    @infiknit – please post Responsive questions here: This thread is outdated and already marked resolved, so it’s not a good place to ask a new question.
