    There’s already been a thread about this (

    OP asked about all the extra text showing up under the page name in the horizontal menu.

    I set up my menu here: Appearance>Menus.

    cwrigley said:

    “To fix your menus; go to the Menu tab in WP-admin, expand the menu item in question and edit the Description field. If you entered no description WP adds the text contents of your page. Remove it or add what you want.”

    BUT, I do NOT see a “description field” on the Edit Menu page, and I don’t see a “description field” on the Page Edit page, so does anybody know where the “description field” is? I can’t get rid of that tall vertical bar of text under the (page) menu item.




    Thanks for that thread, Dude, BUT that stuff is NOT THERE. When I hit the down arrow (and I’ve used that feature many times) I see a field for “title attribute” but not for “description”. And the first screen shot – that’s supposed to look like my Edit Menu page…doesn’t. All that stuff on the upper left side, titled “Show on screen” is not there in my installation.

    This is a fresh WP installation and the only theme installed other than twenty ten.

    Thanks for your fast response!



    OK, I found it! The little pull-down, top right. Then I had to refresh.




    The first screenshot shows how to activate the description field. Everything is described in the thread above. If you can’t find these options please send me an email with your login data and I will do this for you.

    Still a problem though. It says that my theme supports only one menu, but on the demo I see two. On the demo, it looks like the upper H-menu is pages, and the lower H-menu is categories. That’s what I want to do. How can I do that if the theme only supports one menu?




    Did you solve your problem with the desription text?

    2) Just create 2 menus – you shouldn’t encounter any further problems. This is a theme bug some people experience, altough I didn’t notice it on my test server.

    If you want to remove this “only one menu supported” message you can do this with a little modification. Open


    and replacing this code

    add_action( 'init', 'register_my_menu' );
    function register_my_menu() {
    register_nav_menu( 'theme-menu', __( 'Theme Menu' ) );


    add_action( 'init', 'register_my_menu_page' );
    function register_my_menu_page() {
    register_nav_menu( 'theme-menu_page', __( 'Page Navigation' ) );
    add_action( 'init', 'register_my_menu_cat' );
    function register_my_menu_cat() {
    register_nav_menu( 'theme-menu_cat', __( 'Category Navigation' ) );

    Our comments crossed, Dude. You can see I was able to solve the original problem in comment just above your second to last. But it’s a bit buggy. Even with “description” checked, sometimes the description field shows up and sometimes it doesn’t, so I have to check and un-check and refresh…Do you think these issues will be resolved in the next build?


    Glad that you solved your problem.
