Support » Fixing WordPress » Subpages not nesting in Tropicala theme

  • I have been trying unsuccessfully for several hours now to get my subpage links to be nested under my Page links. I have referred to the codex info on wp_list_pages to try to do this, but I still cannot get the subpage links to be nested within the page links. (In other words, I want the link to the Case Studies page to be nested under ad visible when hovering over the Clients page link.) By the way, I am using the Tropicala theme.

    I have pasted the code from my header.php file below and hope that someone can tell me what I need to change within this file (or another) to correct this problem? Thanks!


    <div id=”wrapper”>

    <div id=”masthead”>

    <h1>/”><?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></h1>

    <p><?php bloginfo(‘description’); ?></p>

      <li <?php if(is_front_page()) { ?>class=”current_page_item”<?php } ?>>
      <?php wp_list_pages(‘sort_column=menu_order&title_li=’); ?>

    <div id=”masthead_image”>

    <img src=”<?php bloginfo(‘stylesheet_directory’); ?>/images/kitchen.jpg” alt=”Flower” />



    <div id=”content” class=”clearfix”>

  • A link to your site would help.

    You need a dropdown/flyout script to create the effect you’re looking for. Have a look at Son of Suckerfish Dropdowns.

    Esmi, thanks for your advice, but I was hoping for something a lot less complicated than that. I am new to WordPress and CSS. I have seen posts in this forum talking about changing the value of “depth” or something to help out with this. I may be naive, but I would think (and am hoping), I can tinker only slightly with the CSS code to achieve this.

    Can anyone suggest an easier solution?

    The depth parameter won’t help you create dropdowns but you can find all of the details on the wp_list_pages page (and that’s a mouthful!).

    Also, pure CSS dropdowns are extremely complex and difficult to pull off properly. They can make Son of Suckerfish look like a walk in the park.

    The only other option I can think of is to look for a plugin but I’ve no idea how good/bad any of them are.
