Submenus Are Not Opening

If the submenus of your mobile menu are not opening then please follow the steps below.

1.) Double-check Your Setup.

Head over to Appearance > Menus and ensure that your menu has a name, that it contains at least one submenu and that it is set to primary or secondary. After checking this, make sure that you have assigned the menu in Divi Mobile > Menu Style & Settings. Lastly, make sure that you have styled your submenu in the Sub-Menu Appearance section of Divi Mobile. Following our step by step guide by selecting Divi Mobile in the menu above for more information on the set-up.

2.) Update, Disable & Flush.

Very often, WordPress Divi problems can be solved by updating. Make sure that Divi Mobile and Divi are updated (do this on a staging website or with the ability to restore). If your submenus are still not opening after the update, disable the Divi performance options that are related to JQuery, CSS and JS (Javascript) in Divi > Theme Options along with the static CSS file generation found by going to Divi > Theme Options > Builder > Advanced. End off by flushing your permalink structure twice by saving the permalink structure. Go to Settings > Permalinks > Save Twice. Now open in a cache free browser.

3.) Plugin Conflict & Upgrade Server Specs.

OK, so your submenus are still not opening after all that. Let's keep exploring. Please test to see if there is a plugin conflict. Disable all plugins, clear your browser cache and then see if the issue goes away. If the submenus are now opening then you know that it is a plugin conflict. Reactivate each plugin one at a time until you find the troublesome plugin. If your submenus are still not opening then please check to see if your need to upgrade your server specs including the PHP version. Outdated server specifications can cause issues.

4.) Extra CSS.

Sometimes problems arise from custom CSS added to your website through Divi > Theme Options or the style.css file of your child theme. Create a staging website and remove any extra CSS to see if perhaps there is some CSS stopping your submenu from opening.

5.) Restore Your Website.

We have found that when our customers update a plugin or theme, things break. Perhaps your submenu issue has to do with a recent update. To get your live website working again, please restore it to a version from before the update (when the submenus worked) and then contact us. We will then ask you to create a staging website where we can update again and test to see where the problem lies.
