I'm having a super fish menu wih three layers of menu points but my second layer links do not seem to be expanding even tho "Show as expanded" is checked for the individual menu points (2nd level) that is selected as "Parent item" for the 3rd level page.

Some links:
menu point with submenus: http://www.lslib.ca/content/skwlax-daycare
Third level page(hidden from the menu): http://www.lslib.ca/content/admin

How can I get the third level to display?


I don't exaxctly know how Superfish binds into the configration either.
Maybe a link to the page would help: http://www.lslib.ca/
Under Blocks, I only see Content assigned to a Region. I'm officially confused here... :o


The name of the theme is Nexus Theme, under admin/appearance it says: Nexus Theme is a premium Drupal 7 theme. Developed by Devsaran.com.

In page.tpl.php I have the following:

<nav id="navigation" role="navigation">
  <div id="main-menu">
      if (module_exists('i18n_menu')) {
        $main_menu_tree = i18n_menu_translated_tree(variable_get('menu_main_links_source', 'main-menu'));
      } else {
        $main_menu_tree = menu_tree(variable_get('menu_main_links_source', 'main-menu'));
      print drupal_render($main_menu_tree);
  • Is this still an open question? Did you finish formulating it (it seems unfinished)? Which are the menu points that are not expanding in your example pages? Commented Mar 26, 2016 at 9:27
  • @StefanosPetrakis hoops, yes I properly finished the sentence now. Yes, it still is a problem, the menu extension should be: Departments » Skwlax Daycare » Admin

1 Answer 1


I would give this a try:

In the drupal bloc configuration just disable "Slide-in effect"

Quoting the last comment from this thread: https://github.com/joeldbirch/superfish/issues/30

Hope you get lucky with this, that whole github thread could be also interesting/relevant to your issue.

Update: This is apparently a theme specific superfish implementation, the respective theme being (most probably) Nexus

In order to deactive the effects that could be causing the error, you should edit the file sites/all/themes/nexus/js/custom.js at about line 7, commenting out the animation options:

//  animation:   { opacity:'show',height:'show'},   // fade-in and slide-down animation 

Hope this does the trick!

  • thanks for the link & the help but I have not been able to get it to work yet. I set all 4 block entries to Slide-in effect - None - but it still does nbot extend in Chrome - however, I also have to say that none of the blocs are actually assigned to a region. I'm a little confused here, all superfish blocks have the Region set to - None -

  • Where does superfish bind into your configuration? Is is part of a specific theme you are using? Commented Mar 29, 2016 at 4:14
  • Please see EDIT 1 above
