Hi JB, Did you tick the box to enable the drop down menu ? To check if you have please go to Station Pro Settings --> Theme Options --> Header and Nav: Then underneath the Custom Header Image there should be an option called "Drop Down Navigation", if you haven't ticked the box, do so to enable drop down navigation, once you have save the settings and refresh your site to see if this now works. If this doesn't work, could you attach an image showing us how you have your menu setup in the Wordpress Admin Panel --> Appearance --> Menu please.

Hi JB, In the left column (technically the "middle" column), you can see a section labeled "Theme Locations". For "Primary Navigation", in the dropdown, select "Music Download", assuming that's the menu you want for your main navigation. Then select "save".

That's the correct functionality for a menu. But, I think I see where the confusion is. I think you're creating new menus for each of the items you want to be menu items. What you probably really want is to combine your other two menus with this one. Is that correct? If you gave us a list of what you want the menu hierarchy to be, we could help you out better ;)

Hi Kate,

Here is a newer screen shot:

I'd like to have my page titles on the menu: Home | Music Download | Reggae | Zouk | Kompa | Soca
Then, I have a bunch of sub pages under Music Download, where Music Download is the parent, i would like to have them as "drop down" .
I would not mind giving you my password to take a look.

I thank you in advance for your help.

Regards,
JB

JB,

Following on what Kate was saying, you seem to be using the menu incorrectly. I've done this myself.

Let's start by defining what a submenu is. Essentially, you can make your menu items have a drop down list. The menu items you're seeing now are all called "Parent" menu items. You can also have Child and Grand-Child menu items.

For example, your list above shows several artists. Instead of doing that, you could have ONE parent item called "Artists" and then below it, you can have all the artists listed. To create a drop down, you need to simply slide the menu items a little bit to the right.

See this image:

The results can be seen here. http://www.epicurus.com/food/

Essentially, it reduces the width of your menus, and allows you to have more menu items in a smaller space.

Your menu items are wrapping... basically, creating a chain, one link after another from start to finish and when it reaches the end of one available space, it loops around to the next line.

Rangelone, thanks for your answer above - I didn't know the "sections" in the menus were "slideable" and that it is possible to actually move them around when creating a custom menu! Great, thanks!

How do you get this to work with the Pagelines Fixed Navbar option? I am having trouble with the Child and Grandchild menuitems showing. The menus are nested properly and the pages have the appropriate parent/child relationships.
