    I would like the main menu on the sidebar widget to not show the submenu unless you select the link on the main menu.

    Is this posible?


    Hey bpernalete,

    Not sure if i understood you clearly. Can you please elaborate on the changes you would like to make? :)

    Best regards,


    Ok. Let’s try again.

    Right now I have a menu on a widget on the sidebar of my site and also on top of the site, above the header (the same menu). When I ad a sub menu it’s automatically shown on the menu on the sidebar but not on the same menu at the top of the site (you have to put the cursor on top of the link so it shows you the secondary menu options).

    What i want to do is this: I want the submenu on the sidebar to show ONLY when you click on the link of the main menu, to show their submenu option. Not show all the time, only when you click on the main.

    Get it?

    Thanks in advance.



    I’m sorry but it’s a bit unclear. And we are not sure which sub menu items to display on a specific main menu item. Could you please provide a screenshot? I’m not sure if this is going to help but try to create different custom widget areas for each page in the Appearance > Widgets panel.

    Best regards,


    Look. I’m going to show you what I want to do using different site, and show you how it looks on my site.

    What I want to do is this. If you check the first image you see the main menu on the left side. ( )

    If I click on “things to do” it shows the submenu of that link. ( )

    This is how my site looks. There’s an option on the main menu “Qué ver” the submenu is “Porto Moniz” or “Pico do Areiro”. I want both of them to show ONLY if I click on “Qué ver”, not when I’m on “Por qué Madeira” or any other option of the main menu. ( )

    Thank you for the info. There’s a few things you can try. First, you can install the following plugin so that you can control the menu items’ visibility:

    The other way is to create different custom widget area for each page then insert different custom menu widgets.

    Best regards,



    Thanks man!

    One more thing. There seems to be a dot at the end of every link on the submenu. How can I delete those?



    No problem. Add this in the Quick CSS field:

    #top .widget_nav_menu ul ul li:before {
        content: "";

    Best regards,
