Hello Kyle #1

I have looked at Boomer's recent post - Basics of Word Press Part 2 (7/16/2015 and followed as far as I can determine his instructions to a Tee.

I am using the Theme "Elegant White". I have indented the subtopics under the heading (Top Page) which I want, and saved the Menu several times.

The subtopics which were previously on the front page in the header have disappeared from the front page but do not show up as drop-downs .

Do you have any clue what the problem might be?

My site "Online Internet University.com"

B. regards,

Randelld

Have you got the correct menu chosen in "manage locations" tab which you'll find within Appearance - Menu (look towards top).

I have checked out both videos, i.e. Boomer and Leo but neither one has helped me

Since it wasn't working the first time, I have gone to "Edit" from "Change Location" and selected the choice of Top Menu.
At one point I even tried to Create a New Menu.

I can get all 3 items in the top menu (I will be deleting one) and have indented sub topics under one of the top items.
I have saved the menu and the 3 subtopics are in the Menu Structure but do no show up as drop downs when the web page is refreshed.

Separate issue - You don't have to address, but I don't like the way the position of the header with the logo. I would like to move it up.

So, I am attaching a page print of the main page and also the Dashboard page.
Thanks very much for looking at this.

I installed your theme on my test site and got the same result as you. I went looking in the theme support forums and it seems drop downs are only supported in the pro version. http://bit.ly/1HS6bbL

The only advice I can give is to change themes, most themes DO support a dropdown.

Kathy,
Thanks so much for your research. I assume the pro version would be an upcharge. I have already changed my theme once but guess I have to change it once again. You really can't know this prior to picking a theme and trying to plug in your info.
All the best,
Randell

One thing I do when checking out themes is test them first on a free siterubix site. This way you can look at all the options and check things out before hand. So just go to the site manager and build a new site, test out the themes there. :)

Ok I try to make it as clear as I can. I checked if there is a video tutorial, but I couldn't find it .
I am using a theme where I only work with pages. Now, one of my websites already has quite some articles and I have put them under my "Sylvia's Blog" page (which is the only one been seen on the Header menu
When you like to put all the other written articles under this "Blog,
You go to Appearance, click on menu and there, either way they are being seen in the box at the left corner (waiting to be imported into the main menu) and you click add to menu, or they are already at the middle of the main menu page.
Anyway, from there you use the drag and drop tool.
Click on the box of the page you like to have as a sub-menu under a specific page and re-arrange it. Before you drop the box, the box has to be slightly placed more to the right, not exactly under each other, other wise you will see them all on the header at once.
But, if you have done it the way I just described and save menu and check your website, and you go over the single page on the header, all the sub-page become visible and you can go down with your cursor and click on it and viola the page pops up.
I hope, this helped a bit. I thought there is already a video tutorial but couldn't find it.
Good luck
Sylvia
