    GeneratePress/GP Premium, both up to date.

    My website showcases my consulting work. I’m redesigning it under localhost to get away from an old theme.

    I have two static pages, one for the home page and one for a contact form.

    I’ve set up a blog within the site to serve as a gallery of past work. To access the blog/gallery in the menu, I’m using a custom link with the URL set to #.

    Under that custom link, I’ve set up 5 sub items. Each one is a category within the blog/gallery.

    None of the categories appear in the menu. The blog/gallery custom link loads the entire blog.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you in advance for your awesome work and assistance!

    So when you open the dropdown (with # as the URL), nothing shows up?

    How are you adding them to the menu? Using the “Categories” module in “Appearance > Menus”?



    When I click on the “Our work” menu item, the entire blog/gallery opens in one page or tab, with all categories visible. The list of categories that should appear under the main menu item is not shown.

    Yes, I added the categories through Appearance>Menus. I tried using an actual page (instead of a custom link), but that doesn’t work, either. In both cases, only the main menu item (“Our work”) is visible, and clicking on it loads the entire blog/gallery.

    If that menu item has # as the URL, nothing should happen when you click it.

    Have you set the theme location of the menu?: https://generatepress.com/knowledgebase/using-menus/#set-theme-location



    Hi, Tom:

    Yep, that was it. Thanks for not laughing!

    I don’t know how you get any work done with all the n00b questions you answer so tactfully and helpfully.

    Glad I could help! Answering all questions is a part of the job, I’m happy to do it 🙂
