I can't get the drop down menus to work in Drupal 7. I have hem all set to expanded, cleared caches, etc but still no luck.
Nevermind, I just had to put the menu into the primary menu block and it started working.
I also have it placed in primary menu block, but the way it works is that if I click on a menu item it expands , it doesnt expand just by hovering the mouse over the menu item.
Any idea how to get it to auto expand when hovering the mouse over ?
I should make a note somewhere explain this issue. There is problem with menu (including build-in primary menu block) add on active-trail in first Drupal 7 official release. So if you want the drop down menu work properly, you might want to install Menu Block module.
How to place menu in primary menu block...??
I solved it myself and placed menu in primary block but still dropdown not working. Please help...??
The menu will drop-down if you place it in the primary block AND also set the "Show as expanded" option for the top level items with sub-items. Then these will expand when you hover over top level items in the menu.
thank you. It's help me. Install Menu Block and it start working =)
Hi all... I've installed MENU Block, but what do I have to do after? How to place menu in primary menu block?
The menuthat I wan to expand is the primary menu. I tried several configuration but nothing worked till now.
Any help please?
You do not need Menu Block module to use the dropdowns.
Go to Structure / Blocks. Look for "Main menu" block and set its region to Primary menu. That's all.
@thepauly, @bryrock or @thamas, does the "use primary menu region" workaround depend on what theme is being used? I'm using Bartik and I don't see a "Primary menu" region.
@meonkeys, yes it does depend on the theme. As you've noted, different themes have their own regions defined. In this case, this particular issue and the suggested work-around was specifically addressing the BlogBuzz theme.
I am facing the same issue but diffrently, in my case menu is getting expanded with the theme I create it, as I change the theme the menu does not expand. using drupal 7.
thank you very much, works :)
Thanks please keep it up, this information was lovely.
bryrocks answer ("Show as expanded") was my solution. Thank you!
I am using Nexus template, which does not have a Primary Block option.
I have tried the Header, Content Top, and Content with no change in the dropdown behavior.
I have even installed Menu Block and suppressed Drupal’s standard menu blocks for the Main Menu.
Still no change.
Any other thoughts?
I installed the module Jquery Update. In Setting -> Jquery Update you can adjust the jquery-version for Nexus. I selected jquery 1.7 like the demo site of Nexus and the pull down works.
