I currently have eight menu items. I want the reader to be shown a different page when they click some of these menu items. No problem, I know how to do this.
However, for other menu items, I do not want the reader to be shown a different page. Instead, they should be presented with a drop-down menu, from which they can click on an item and then they will be shown a different page. I have tested this, and I have two questions.
(1) I have a menu item titled “Money” with a drop-down menu consisting of three items. Hovering over “Money” activates the drop-down menu. But clicking on “Money” takes the reader to a different page, which I do not want. How do I fix this?
(2) When hovering over “Money”, and attempting to move down into the drop-down menu, the drop-down menu sometimes disappears. I can immediately try again and it may or may not work. If the cursor maintains the “connection” as I move it from “Money” into the drop-down menu, then I can make my selection. I have discovered that the best way to maintain that “connection” is to move the cursor very quickly. So there seems to be some kind of glitch. What can be done?
The other problem remains. I am a rookie and am working my way through design and other aspects of the site. I have not yet dealt with plugins, but I checked and there are only two plugins installed – Akismet and Hello Dolly.
Both have NOT been activated. So something else is causing the problem.
Is there any hope of resolving this? When I am finished, most of the items in my horizontal menu will trigger a drop-down sub-menu list. So I must find a solution, because these drop-down menus are crucial to my site.
You can see on my site that I have two widgets with drop-down menus, and these work perfectly! Why is there a problem with the drop-down feature in the horizontal navigation menu?
As mentioned in my previous post, my site has only two plugins installed, but they are NOT activated. So the problem lies elsewhere.
