I am using the horizontal NavBar style with Superfish. When I'm in a section, I do not want its sub-navigation bar to show up. I only want to see the sub-pages listed whenever I mouse over the parent link.

Example: Main section is called Products, and I have a sub-section called T-Shirts. If I click on T-Shirts or Products, it displays the sub-navigation without having to mouse over the Products link again. The sub-navigation menu becomes persistent when in that section. I only want to see the list of Products sub pages if I mouse over the main Products link.

I tried setting Path Class to blank instead of "active-trail," but that jacked it up. Also tried hiding .active-trail with CSS, but no luck there either.

Wondering if this is a Drupal issue with Menu settings or a Superfish issue?

Thanks in advance for the help!

It's both. The active trail stuff has always been, and still is, a big mess, and Superfish herited the problems. You can check this thread for some information about it, but it remains unclear.

  • Thanks for the link to the thread. I found a solution on that page that involved setting the Path Class to something other than "active-trail" (ex. "customclass"). Not sure why this isn't mentioned in the Superfish documentation, but oh well.

It's a problem with active trail. I found that changing the version of my superfish library fixed it. I was running 1.91 of the Superfish module with the master branch of Superfish library. When I changed the library to the stable branch, the active trail worked.


For me worked solution:

  • open superfish block settings
  • change "Path levels" to "0"
