Hi, my menu (nav classic) drop downs stopped working. Can someone help? My site is www.ewiabq.org. I've attached my menu structure.

Hi there, there was nothing attached to your post unfortunately.

 

Have you checked the option for drop downs is ticked in the header and footer panel - http://screencast.com/t/fIDA8mcjgMu


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Thanks for responding. Yes I have all those boxes checked. Seems my drop downs were working one day and then later they weren't. I'm worried there's some script or code interfering? I've attached the menu structure this time. Thanks.

Hi there

 

That all looks correct. Have you tried disabling any third party plugins to see if there is a script/code conflicting?

 

Have you added any css for the nav? If so please try removing to see if this resolves the drop downs.

Ok. That didn't seem to work either. I did have come custom css making my menu text larger and bolded. Now that's gone, my menu is tiny and the dropdowns still don't work. More ideas?

If your Custom CSS isnt working - try this, go to the CSS Validator tool here http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate_by_input

 

Copy your Custom CSS from your site and paste the code into the 'Direct input' area. 

The validator tool will report any issues with your CSS and tell you on which line the error occurs specifically. 

 

One typo in your CSS can stop all your CSS loading. 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Thanks Martin, I don't have any custom CSS on this site (just deleted my one line of code) but I'll remember this for the future!

The issue is although you have created your menu, you haven't assigned it to the Nav Classic menu area. To do this, go to Appearance > Menus and then scroll down to the bottom of your Menu and you should see the following:

Check the box that says Primary Website Navigation

 

http://d.pr/i/YCHU

 

Then click the Save Menu button, once saved, go to your website, refresh the page and your menu should now be active. If you require further assistance with configuring the Wordpress Menu, I recommend you view the Wordpress documentation.
