  1. Hi I'd like to disable the time delay when hovering over the dropdown menu. I'd like it to drop down immediately!

    Could someone advise me on where this variable is located? Thanks so much. :)

    Best Regards,

  2. You may want to modify two things. First the initial hover (mouseover) is controlled by hoverIntent.js

    Just remove it.

    // Load scripts for the jquery Superfish minus hoverIntent.js
    function childtheme_override_head_scripts() {
    	$scriptdir_start = "\t";
    	$scriptdir_start .= '<script type="text/javascript" src="';
    	$scriptdir_start .= get_bloginfo('template_directory');
    	$scriptdir_start .= '/library/scripts/';
    	$scriptdir_end = '"></script>';
    	$scripts = "\n";
    	$scripts .= $scriptdir_start . 'superfish.js' . $scriptdir_end . "\n";
    	$scripts .= $scriptdir_start . 'supersubs.js' . $scriptdir_end . "\n";
    	$dropdown_options = $scriptdir_start . 'thematic-dropdowns.js' . $scriptdir_end . "\n";
    	$scripts = $scripts . apply_filters('thematic_dropdown_options', $dropdown_options);
    		$scripts .= "\n";
    		$scripts .= "\t";
    		$scripts .= '<script type="text/javascript">' . "\n";
    		$scripts .= "\t\t" . '/*<![CDATA[*/' . "\n";
    		$scripts .= "\t\t" . 'jQuery.noConflict();' . "\n";
    		$scripts .= "\t\t" . '/*]]>*/' . "\n";
    		$scripts .= "\t";
    		$scripts .= '</script>' . "\n";
    	// Print filtered scripts
    	print apply_filters('thematic_head_scripts', $scripts);

    There will also be a delay when you are no longer have your cursor there (mouseout), check into #8 at you will see where the delay is.

  4. Hi Scott,

    When you say "remove it", do you mean remove the file hoverIntent.js, or the code that you mention above which is contained in some (which?) file? If the latter, should I tear out all of that code shown?

    Thank you for your help! :)

  5. The code I posted has hoverIntent.js already removed.

    I removed this line $scripts .= $scriptdir_start . 'hoverIntent.js' . $scriptdir_end . "\n";.

  6. Thanks, and is this code all found in header-extensions.php? Just wanting to make sure...

    ...Or is this what I plug in to my child theme's functions.php file?

    Thank you. :)

  7. I grabbed the function from the header-extensions.php file and used the override. It is intended to be thrown in your functions.php. You are correct. ;)
