Can't save my drop down menus

  1. My Drop Down won't save under the Menu Devotional Inspirations. I have done this before and it worked. When I try to create or save my sub catagories it only saves to a catagory of its own. What is going on?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Some themes have dropdowns designed into them and some do not. In the case of the latter we create custom menus to achieve that.

    There are many common errors, misunderstandings and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here >

  3. Thank you Tmethief but I think this is a technical issue. I have create this drop down many times before on this same blog. In fact you can see some drop downs still work. It is just that in the menu area, for some reason, the drop downs I am creating under the parent will not save under the parent. Some how I will have to get WP to give me technical help.

  5. Thanks again Timethief. Very nice of you.

  6. What browser and version are you using?

  7. Hi Justpi,

    I am using IE 9.0. It is the browser I always use with WP. Should I try another browser?

  8. First, if you're using IE9 and compatibility mode is enabled, you should disable it. Second, IE is a lousy browser anyway: you should switch to a decent browser, namely Firefox or Safari.

  9. Hi there,

    If you want to move a menu item to be under another menu item, you can just drag the item up/down so it is directly below the parent menu, then drag it to the right so it is indented ( If you look at your menu here

    you can see that the video menus are indented to the right underneath the video blog menu.

    I was able to move submenus under your Devotional Inspiration menu when I tested dragging and dropping just now, but please let me know if you are still having trouble getting this set up the way you want it.


  10. Thanks to Everyone for their help. @Justpi you were right. I just needed to change the browser. I was able to save the menu under foxfire. I don't use foxfire because I have a hard time with videos and music on it. But it worked for me tonight. Thanks again everyone!

  11. Glad to hear everything is working for you now! Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.
