I’ve got no clue what that hack did or didn’t do to the core. Or anything else. I did find that she had deleted all the default themes and I had to re-install them. That left me scratching my head and saying those three words I can’t type here.
This is what has been done so far without ANY change in the functionality of the menus when a Genesis child theme is active:
- Checked child theme files (already know Genesis was up to date…so only needed to check child theme)
- Checked menu, renamed, added, removed and added items again
- Activated and deactivated plugins
- Deactivated theme and then reactivated
- Reset permalinks… again
- Put through a slug URL sanitization
- Made sure plugins that were installed were up to date and no errors
- Played with some of the widgets containing adverts
- Added a z-index on the navigation menus
Oh and WP has been updated more than once.
However, when a default WP is active, everything works correctly. This has me COMPLETELY stumped.
I’m trying a DB repair now and then a a fresh install of WP to see if it changes anything. I’m am still convinced it’s the child theme but cannot figure out where the issue is.
Ok, problem solved. After a database repair/optimization, reinstalling WP updates several times and going through the code with a fine toothed comb and a second pair of eyes, the only thing that worked was a fresh install of WP and re-import of data.
I still have no clue why the default themes worked fine but Genesis did not. Two days, several hours and many tired brain cells later, it’s all fixed. I think next time a client has a problem with their site, I’m just going to do a fresh WP install and work backwards. That will save them money and me time. LOL
