    Did you create your Menu’s under Appearance –> Menus and then add the sub-tabs?

    You may want to disable any new plugins – one at a time to see if there is a conflict.

    This sounds like an issue for a support ticket – you’re trying to do something that your theme was designed to do; it’s set-up related, so I think it wouldn’t hurt to submit a ticket request.

    If the site isn’t live, can you replace the theme with another theme (like one of the free child themes) to see if it is a theme specific issue, or a site issue?

    Other than that, I couldn’t suggest anything more than Anita has already done – you’ve set up your menu; you’ve populated it with sub-headings; you’ve checked the right boxes.

    Hello everyone, Quick update.  The support ticket i submitted told me to do this:

    Remove overflow hidden and set the height to 45px here

    #nav {
    background: url(“images/nav.png”) repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    clear: both;
    color: #EEEEEE;
    font-family: ‘Droid Sans’,arial,serif;
    margin: -25px auto;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding: 0;
    position: relative;
    text-shadow: 1px 1px #000000;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    width: 1040px;
    }

    However that didn’t solve the complete issue. I was able to use firebug and found that I needed to remove the “left” and “z-index”  styles as well from:

    #nav li ul {
    height: auto;
    left: -9999px;
    position: absolute;
    width: 200px;
    z-index: 9999;
    }

    Everything is working great now!

    I had the same problem with the Generate theme.  More pronounced on Safari than Firefox.  Seems like the hover in the first drop down did not extend all of the way to the second drop down.

    Fixed by making the following change:

    #nav li li a,
    #nav li li a:link,
    #nav li li a:visited {
    background: none;
    border-bottom: 1px dotted #731212;
    color: #fff;
    font-size: 11px;
    padding: 7px 5px;
    position: relative;
    text-shadow: 1px 1px #444;
    width: 145px;   ****this was set at 128. Changed it to 145.
    }
