NavBar - activate dropdowns on hover

Recommended Posts

I have a services page in my site with three child service pages.  e.g.

 

services

 - one

 - two

 - three

 

What is the secret to getting the dropdowns in the NavBar to show when you hover over them?

 

Have tried ticking the "Activate dropdowns on hover" checkbox under the NavBar panel of the global options.

 

Have also tried disabling the Fixed NavBar and instead adding a NavBar section, but still not getting dropdowns appearing.

 

Is there also a setting that I need to change in WordPress somewhere instead perhaps?

 

Love to hear from anyone who has got this working.

 

Thanks,

Martyn

Martyn,

 

Please try going to Dashboard > Appearance > Menus and check the Theme Location settings.  Make sure your savede custom menu is selected as the primary menu.  I think what's happened is that your menu has become disconnected from the theme, and is just picking up the simplest version.

Thanks for your reply.

 

The following was the solution that worked for me:

 

  1. Menus > Create new Custom Menu (call it topmenu for example)
  2. Add pages to your custom menu
  3. Drag and drop the items in your custom menu to order them and to indent those that are sub pages of parent pages (ie: nest them - this drag and drop nesting and ordering was the bit that I was missing - thanks nick for explaining this one)
  4. Select your topmenu as the default site menu
  5. Dashboard > Appearance > Menus ensure that topmenu is selected and also tick the checkbox for enabling dropdown feature to work

Cheers,
Martyn

None of these solutions work with my site messinascatering.com.  It appears to be only in Chrome.  Is anyone else experiencing or have advice?  Of course, this comes at a time when the site has to be in working order due to a big bridal show.  Please help.

When I view messinascatering.com in Chrome or Firefox I see drop down menus for all but the last two menu items, which do not have drop lists.

      Hello, 
      I have an issue with NavPro on mobile when the link of the menue is on the same page. 
      Here is my website: http://foundersofthefuture.co
      The isssue comes from the fact that in my menue most of the items send somewhere else on the same page using anchor link (eg. #container_u788888). 
      This works well on desktop but on mobile, nothing happens when clicking on the link. One of the link of the menue of the homepage "France" sends to another page of the website and this one works well even on mobile. 
      I am using the Pagelines framework theme and also used a wordpress plugin (jQuery Smooth Scroll) for smooth scrolling . 
      Thanks in advance for your help and let me know if I need to provide more information. 
      Best,
      Pierre

      I'd love to have some social media buttons in my navbar like my online-shop has!

      Hi guys. Just now trying out Platform 5. I like the reletive simplcity of the new interface but there are things I'm used to in DMS that I'm not seeing yet in 5. Is there a good manual, documentation, video series about some of the basics?
      In particular, I've got a simple navigation menu, created the standard way in WP menus section with several top level parents, then 3-4 children menu items below a couple parent items. Have them moved to the right to create the standard parent-child relationship but all I see on the page is the parent level items - no dropdown!. So I changed themes from Platform5 to the standard 2015 default theme and now I see absolutely no menu at top, except for the mobile (hamburger?) icon.
      In DMS, one had Navi and Navbar, etc sections and each would work differently and give different results. How do you work the menu system in 5? And how get different results ?
      thanks

      I have a problem at http://kambo.world. Using navbar for the main site navigation. It works fine in normal/desktop mode [first screenshot], using the WP Menu I have specified. But in hamburger mode it seems to do its own thing, picking a few pages at random [second screenshot] A fix for this greatly appreciated!
