Odd NavBar behavior

I've put NavBar into this site and it's producing some very odd behavior.


As you can see, you have to hover over a menu item several times to get the submenu to display, and then repeat that process to be able to click an item. With one submenu, hovering over it opens up the submenu two items to the left.

This isn't normal behaviour, its most likely caused by your customizations, if you remove your custom CSS, this should resolve the issue. If it doesn't then you will need to disable all active plugins.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Hi Danny,


The culprit seems to have been Jetpack. I'm not 100% convinced but I'll keep an eye on things.

Thank you for letting us know - reactivating one by one is a sure fire way to find the culprit 

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.

      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.

      Hi there!
      I'd love to have some social media buttons in my navbar like my online-shop has!
      Can someone explain me how to create them? I tried a lot but don't know how to realize them...

      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 ?

      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!
