Drop Down Menu Not Working With Lite Version


Best Answer James B , 29 November 2012 - 02:15 AM

Hi there, in order to make css alterations you'll need to download a firebug (www.firebug.com) and find the ID/Class for the item you want to apply the new css to. There are many videos on youtube which will advise you on how to use firebug. You're looking to edit the css, not the html or php.

 

Unfortunately as you're using the free version of the software we're unable to assist you in this process or the editing of any css or customization, you'll need to learn how to use css to make the adjusts yourself. 

 

However, a great entry guide and overview of css can be found here http://www.w3schools...css/default.asp which will help you learn the fundamentals.

Hey everyone,

 

Someone PLEASE help me.

I have three navigation pages - and two of them are parent pages. 

 

They have the arrows and everything, but when I click to expand the child pages all the browser does is..

 

mydomain.com/#m1 and so forth.

 

It doesn't display the drop down menu. 

I know I'm on the lite version and all, but if this gets fixed I will more than likely happily upgrade (was planning on it anyway)

You page is stopping early, there is no footer so the js needed is not loading, possibly a php fatal error stopping it? Enable WP_DEBUG in wp-config.php

I did remove the footer.. can you copy / paste the footer code here so I can add in what I removed?

 

I must've broke it.

 

Thanks for the reply.

Thank you so much! It works again!

 

Is there a way to remove the leaf without breaking anything?

You can hide it with css, or a filter, or edit the footer.php ;)

Can you tell me how to?

 

Also, is there a way to add mini icons next to child pages in the drop down navigation menu? If so - that'd be AMAZING and I am for sure going to buy the pro.

Well, im not a css pro, but firebug would easily show you what to hide...

 

As for the menu, in wordpress menus page you can add classes to the menu items, just add the class for the icon there.

 

Here are all the icons to choose from: http://support.pagel...s/font-awesome/

I don't have menus created as they're confusing. I just have one page as the parent and the rest as child pages.

 

How would I add the icon then?

 

Also, what could I remove from the footer.php that wouldn't break the theme but removes the leaf?

Well there is no way to add the class, if you dont add a menu ;)

 

Also editing the core PHP files is not supported, thats why I suggested using CSS.

Well, since I'm new to this software - please help me out.

 

Please tell me instructions on how to hide the footer without rendering the whole template.

You've been a big help, and I thank you for that.

Use firebug to find the element you want to hide, then add display:none

 

In the full version you can hide the leaf, upload your own image, set your own url or disable it altogether.
