    Hello All,

    I've been developing a website, I'm happy with it but when I add sub pages to my menu they don't show as a drop down menu at all.

    Solutions I've tried thus far:

    1: Removing all my child theme menu styling in the child theme style.css file - result no drop down menu.

    2: Removing my secondary menu I created - result no drop down menu still.

    I read through Helga's brilliant post on "Menu's demystified" and saw their were problems with priority that could cause problems.

    Here's my website:

    There's actually two pages under "Services" but they don't show when I hover. In my functions file I created a new menu like so:

    //Registering a new menu
    register_nav_menus(array('secondary' => __('Secondary Menu')));
    //Adding the Secondary new menu
    function pixelwoo_secondary_menu() {
    	wp_nav_menu(array('theme_location' => 'secondary' , 'fallback_cb' => ''));
    add_action('thematic_abovefooter', 'pixelwoo_secondary_menu', '20');

    I do have a few script enqueued for Nivo and some css files, I wondered if anyone saw any glaring mistakes, something that might cause this conflict or priority being overruled or something that stops my drop down menus from appearing? I'm happy to provide more code from my functions file if that helps, but pointers / advice on what could cause this would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much! :)

  2. Add the CSS

    #access { overflow: visible; }

    Thanks ScottNix,

    You're as helpful as ever. I tried it and unfortunately it didn't work! Any other thoughts greatly appreciated! By the way thank you for you sharing your great words of wisdom earlier too, greatly appreciated :)

    I don't know if this helps but I added a class to the access menu (to make it work with I hope that hasn't banished my sub menu's to a mystical place!!

    Thanks again.

  4. make that

    overflow: visible !important;

    as overflow:hidden is in the 2 column layout which you are enqueuing after style.css. hence scott's suggestion just gets overridden. you could also remove the hidden declaration from the 2 column layout. i'm not really sure what it's purpose is anyway.
