    I was able to use your category “submenu” links to reach the proper archives pages without difficulty.

    Firefox 34.0.5? That’s the latest (1 December).
    You might have to wait for Staff to sort this out.

    Hi Mathukutty P. V.,

    I was able to navigate and click your sub-menus in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

    It’s important to note that if your mouse leaves the menu or submenu area the submenu is meant to disappear. See the screencast for an example of see the disappearance and the functioning click:

    You can help aid users reaching the submenu by adding Padding to your navigation elements with Custom CSS. This increases the space, within the element, so the mouse has more area to move around without the submenu disappearing. As it stands, one must be rather direct in the mouse movement.

    Adding Custom CSS will require our Premium plan. If you’d like to learn about the Padding attribute in CSS, see here:

    Thanks. That mean this problem is known to the theme developers and they want bloggers to purchase premium plan. Is it not possible to to add this css in this theme?

    #2163817

    The intent of the theme would not be to get bloggers to purchase the premium plan. Sunspot is available for free on self-hosted sites and there you could customize it any way you wish:

    https://wordpress.org/themes/sunspot

    The size of the navigation elements is a design choice. However since you’re site is apparently highly dependent on sub-menus, perhaps not the best design for your specific situations. We have several other themes to choose from that would have more prominent menus and are also free.

    Perhaps the theme Big Brother? That demo site makes large use of sub-menus and I find it much more accessible.

    Or you could try this search for free themes with custom menu implementations:

    https://wordpress.com/themes/filter/staff-picks+custom-menu/type/free/

    However, adding custom css to a site hosted on WordPress.com will require the Premium plan regardless of the theme.

    Best,

    -Alex G.

    its ok, no problem, I will add submenu as main or else create page and add sub category with a small note on that page.

    Sounds like a plan. :)

    Please let me know if you have further questions.

    Sir

    I could notice a new problem today. Block quotes are not visible in chrome browser, but showing correctly in firefox.
    This is a new post created http://lordofsick.wordpress.com/2014/12/16/partaking-of-the-supper-unworthily/. I have many posts with block quotes from Bible, checked some and found none are showing block quotes in chrome. But it was working earlier. I dont know why problem now.

    #2163886

    Hi again!

    I took a look at your site in both Firefox and Chrome and saw no discernible difference in how the blockquotes were formatted:

    Could you please take a screenshot of the difference you’re seeing and upload that screenshot to your media library?

    Best,

    -Alex G.
