Drop Down Menu Not Working

Recommended Posts

My navigation's drop down menu just quite working. I'm not sure what the problem is. The coding is all there and looks fine, so does the CSS. I don't see anything that should be effecting it. Help?

You can see the design here: http://sugar-baby.org/The navigation SHOULD drop down like this: http://i43.tinypic.com/1zodpbb.jpg

It may have to be something else for it to work properly.

 

OR

 

It may be because of what's discussed at this link: http://www.designchemical.com/blog/index.php/faq/i-get-the-error-message-dcmegamenu-is-not-a-function/When the page loads, if you look in the error console, you'll see: TypeError: $(...).dcMegaMenu is not a function and it may be because of what's mentioned in the above link.

 

Hopefully this was helpful.

I see big problems. When I view the source of your webpage there are a number of include file statements such as...

<script type="text/javascript" src="/wp-content/themes/purple/js/jquery-1.7.2.js"></script>

...and when I click on a file that ends in .js I should see a Javascript file full of code. But I don't see that. I think the file is missing or the path is wrong.

 

There is an include statement for the menu file...

<script type='text/javascript' src='/wp-content/themes/purple/js/jquery.dcmegamenu.1.3.3.js'></script>

...and this file is supposed to contain the jQuery function .dcMegaMenu()

 

But when I click on the link to this file I don't see it. Apparently you have a number of files that are missing or not where they are supposed to be.

 

The actual jquery.dcmegamenu file can be obtained here...

...But I suspect that you now have multiple missing or misplaced files.

 

Maybe you have grown tired of the complexity of WordPress. You don't absolutely have to use WordPress. You can create a webpage without it, but it won't be as fancy or have all the latest gadgets, and you will have to write your own HTML and CSS.

Or you can just start over. Save your images and content and then delete everything and start over. You might need to go to WordPress.org for step-by-step setup instructions.

Well, I looked into the javascript files and everything is there. All of the file content that should be there, is there.

 

[edit] I did see that the scripts weren't linked correctly and that's why you weren't seeing anything in the files. However, that's all fixed now and things still aren't working.

 

Also, I need simplicity, that's why i switched over to WordPress. I don't have time to go into cPanel every time I want to blog. I don't have time for all that extra work. I don't have time to just "start over" either, nor do i want too. I've never had so much trouble with a theme or any layout before!

SOLVED

It had to do with the jquery.hoverIntent.minified.js and an error with the link to it.

Thank you everyone for your help!
