I'm creating drop down menus using the menu functions in wordpress and I can't get past a certain level. For example, one of my menu buttons was set up like this with a sub-menu:

Resources (top menu button)
Maps
Directions
Photos
VBS
2011
2010
2009

Audio

The "2011", "2010", and "2009" should have been sub-menus of the sub-menu "VBS" (VBS is also a sub-menu of Photos) but when I check the page, 2011, 2010 and 2009 don't even show up, the sub-menu "VBS" has no arrows or anything indicating there should be more sub-menus underneath it.
I thought that maybe it was a limitation of wordpress but when I changed to the twentyten theme, I could create multiple levels of sub-menus with no problem. Any ideas?

wordpress version 3.1.2, free version of Platform.

Thanks.

You're using the Appearance > Menus feature, yes? If that's not working, you probably need to change the menu depth number in one of the theme files...

"You're using the Appearance > Menus feature, yes?" Yes ma'am, I am. I have no clue as to where I would have to go to change it to a different value...like I said, with the twentyten theme,I could do multiple submenus but something in this theme is limiting how many levels I can add or, how many levels of submenu will show up.

Hi nomad60, Would you be able to provide a link to your site, please? Also, if you're able to share a screenshot of your menu admin panel that would be great. Thanks!

Based on the screenshot of your menu settings, the hierarchy appears to be set up correctly. I think the depth value has to be changed in one of the files. Can you post a screenshot of the Appearance > Editor page on your Dashboard?

Look inside your theme folder and check if there is a section.nav.php file.

Under the sections folder, there is a folder named nav which has several files; 2 of them are section.nav.php and superfish.css - I looked at them and they seem to work together but I couldn't make heads or tails. I zipped the entire nav folder up and if you want, you can download and see the files themselves:
