    We have a horizontal primary menu with drop-downs, which works fine. See: http://c56368.sgvps.net/~dnrstudios/contact

    However is there a way or a recommended plugin to use, to display a sub-page menu for the section you are in, on the left or right page column sections? See the original site and it’s menu here: https://www.dnrstudios.com/contact/

    Hi there,

    this plugin can do the job:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/be-subpages-widget/

    Or Bill actually provides the basic PHP to convert the secondary menu to display sub pages. Note: you must assign a menu to the Secondary menu for it to work, I used the same menu as the Primary nav has.

    David,

    Thanks for your support. I installed be-subpages-widget and put the widget in the “Left Sidebar” under: Appearances > Widgets

    But the sub-page menu does not display. I have tried customizing the “Sidebar” options with almost every conceivable option. I would think that setting all of them to “Sidebar / Content” would get it to work right somewhere. But it never appears.

    Any suggestions?

    Can you go to Customizer > Menus, and the menu you have assigned to your Primary Navigation also assign it to the Secondary Navigation.

    Hi David,

    The Secondary Navigation was not assigned. So I assigned the Primary to the Secondary, but the result was not what I wanted. That resulted in simply putting the same horizontal Primary Menu, vertically.

    What I want, is a sub-page menu vertically, that only shows the one parent and all the child pages listed in vertical menu format, in the left sidebar. These sub-pages are not defined in any particular Menu and they are different for each primary page. See http://c56368.sgvps.net/~dnrstudios

    I thought the plugin you suggested would have given me that, but it did not produce any output.

    I got it to work. Stupid me. I had all my pages on one level without any parents. Just corrected that.

    But now one other question, how do I change (enlarge) the font used for the subpage menu?

    I can’t tell if it’s the same font as the rest of the page, other than size.

    EDIT
    Glad to hear that
    Can you link me to a page with the sub menus? Currently i get a 404

    David,

    You got a 404 by clicking the parent page, which is a redirect to the first sub-page. And the redirect doesn’t work yet due to the linking method. So if you go to the first sub-page, you’ll see the menu:

    Try this:

    .sidebar .widget {
        font-size: 15px;
    }

    Perfect, it worked. I bumped it up to 18px.
