    Hello, if you edit your menu…

    … you’ll probably find that your child page “blocks” are positioned directly under the About page block. You need to just drag them to the right a bit, so that when you drop them, there’s a little indent. If you’ve done it right, the words
    sub item
    will appear on the block :-)

    Do this for both, save the menu and it should be problem solved. Let me know!



    Whoops, the formatting of my last post went a little strange, hope you can read it ok.


    We are having the same problem. Is there any video tutorial available?
