    I’m having execution problems with the submenus at It is very difficult to get to the submenus, without the main nav menu item clicking through instantly. For example:

    … Ownership
    … Stores

    It’s very difficult for users to get to the sub menus. The user has to be incredibly fast.

    How do I fix this issue? WP is up to date, Genesis up to date as well.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.



    Problem solved…duhhhh!!!



    How did you solve it?



    The solution to this issue is to create main NAV Menu items without links to site pages and then to create submenu items for the NAV Menu that will link to the site pages. Here is what I did:

    1. Go to Appearance..Menus
    2. Select the Main Navigation Menu
    3. Select Links
    4. In the URL Field replace “http://” with the hash tag “#”
    5. In the Link Text Field, I typed “About”
    6. Click on Add to Menu

    What this does is create a Menu Item called “About” that does not link to any of the pages in the site.

    The final steps in the process is to drag and drop the new About menu item to its proper location in the Nav Menu hierarchy and then to drag the original About Nav Menu item into a sub-menu position just below the new About menu item.

    Don’t forget to save the menu changes.

    If you go to and place your cursor over the About menu item…it will NOT link to the About page. However, just below it is the actual About page link, which I renamed “Frontier Village.”




    I am still having problems with the drop down disappearing when I try to select the sub menu items.

    Here is the link
