So long story short, im a noob WP dev and im like on my 2nd custom WP site so sorry if i sound a bit lost.
As i was doing my first WP custom site, i noticed that for example, on the default theme and any other themes i tried out, when you add a menu item that has child options, they wrap under the parent option, think drop down menu. or like this
PARENT OPTION-1 PARENT OPTION-2 PARENT OPTION-3 CHILD OPT 1 CHILD OPT 2
etc, Now when making my own theme, when i manually put in the
<?php wp_nav_menu(); ?> hook and add in the menu items dynamically via WP cpanel, my menu child items come out like this
PARENT OPTION-1 PARENT OPTION-2 PARENT OPTION-3 CHILD OPTION1 CHILD OPTION2
As you can see, parent option 1s child menu options are horizontal, and the other menu parent items get pushed way to the side.
Now when i leave menu items without child menu items, then the menu looks fine, its when child options are added that it becomes wonky.
What im wanting to know is, what can i do to make it like it appears in the default themes? you know, to make it work like normal?
Any tips/tricks/links and good explanations/help etc i gladly appreciate.
looking at this deeper, the child menu items always show as opposed to only displaying on parent items mouseover.
Thanks in advanced. http://somdowprod.net/
