Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress wp_nav_menu skipping items OR not sorting items

  • Resolved oskarmothander


    I have a menu like this (called “Meny”):

    - Level2
    - ...
      - Level 3
      - Level 3 .. and so on.

    However doing this in sidebar-menu.php:

    $options = array(
            'container'      => '',
            'echo'           =>  false,
            'menu'           => 'Meny',
            'theme_location' => 'sidebar-menu',
        $nav = wp_nav_menu($options);

    Outputs all level1 and level2 items but always only the first level3 child??? I’ve double checked and I do have several level3 items in “Meny”.. :S

    If I remove ‘menu’ => ‘Meny’ it outputs all but then I loose the correct order!

    What theme are you using? Where did you download it from?

    I downloaded it from my brain… No it’s a theme based on: but me and my collegue has rewritten some of it, mostly front-end changes.

    I doubt it has anything to do with the theme. The page-menu is showing correctly in the site.

    header.php has this code:

    <?php wp_nav_menu(array(
        'depth'            => 2,
        'container'        => 'div',
        'theme_location'   => 'header-menu',
        'before'           => '<div class="a_wrap">',
        'after'            => '</div>',
        'menu'             => 'Meny',
        'items_wrap'       => '<ul id="%1$s" class="%2$s">
                                   <li id="menu_start" class="menu-item"> </li>%3$s
                                   <li id="menu_drift" class="menu-item">
                                        <div class="a_wrap">
                                            <a href="">hardcoded tab</a>

    What happens if you use the original Responsive theme? If you want 3 levels, why are you setting depth to 2?

    I want 2 levels (depths) in the main site-menu (header.php) but we also have a side-menu in (sidebar-menu.php) which we want to show 3 levels.

    So which one relates to the code above?

    Seems like the first menu is cached and used when wp_nav_menu is called the second time. It’s weird it outputs the first level 3 childs though.

    I used wp_get_nav_menu_object() instead and that worked!
