If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Hi, I’m trying to make the sidebar submenu display the same menu structure I have at the top of the page. The submenu in the sidebar doesn’t display any menu item at all, it’s empty unless I create the menu items explicitly on the theme’s menu manager (in which case the selected page isn’t highlighted on the submenu and the subpages are not even displayed as items) . My top menu is a menu created from the wordpress “menus” link not the theme’s menu manager, and I have selected it as the menu for my theme.
In addition, in the theme’s menu manager I have the “Yes, display menu in Sidebar” selected.
What could be wrong?
I have wordpress 3.3.1, apache server on windows 7.
Edit1: My whole site is a bunch of pages and subpages.
Edit2: I just noticed that even the top level pages, when visited aren’t hightlighted on the top menu.
Guys please, anyone? What I’m trying to achieve is the way the submenu works in the sidebar here http://www.kriesi.at/demos/display/wordpress-template-display/ , where the submenu pages are displayed only for the current selected parent.
Please I’m on a deadline and didn’t expect the theme to have such gaps. Its presentation on the link above is perfect.
Ok found a solution, I created some custom menus that cover every single page I’m interested in and I gave a custom widget menu to every individual page and subpage. Maybe not the best solution but works for anyone that’s interested.
