    Hello,

    I am using ‘Font Awesome 4 Menus’ plugin which allows you to easily assign icons to the menu using a class in the menu structure. I have used this plugin for many years with our existing theme and it works well, but am building a new site with Community Builder. It seems that it works well with Community Builder except for submenus. You can see here https://staging-igotmyrefund.kinsta.cloud/ The icon does not appear for the one menu item that has a submenu. It appears briefly when the page loads and then disappears. Is their a css fix you can recommend for fixing this?

    Thank you. I also have found that it isn’t appearing correctly on mobile devices.

    Actually, it seems to be a problem with the Left Panel menu. I have a menu assigned to both the Main Navigation and Left Panel Menu (Visible on small screen) display locations. It isn’t appearing correctly on the Left Panel Menu. But I expected that it would only appear on small screen, and it still appears on large.

    @Brajesh Singh Do I need a membership to access theme updates?

    Hi Jessica,
    Thank you for the reply.

    1. I am sorry I haven’t been able to release an update due to office move. Will do it tomorrow.

    2. I just checked your account. No, you don’t need membership. You already have 1 yer support and upgrades included with the theme.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Jessica,
    Thank you for the patience.
    I have release 1.1.6 now and it adds an option in the Advance setitngs to disable the dropdown icon. Please visit Appearance->Customize->Advance Settings and check the option to disable it.

    After that, the icons will work.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Great!

    I made the following css change so that the sub-menu doesn’t overlap the main menu for the header layout that I am using.

    #nav ul li ul {
    top: auto;
    }

    It is better, but because of #header-top-row padding, it still had a slight overlap.

    So I made the following css change:

    #header-top-row {
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    padding-bottom: 0;
    }

    I don’t know if this is the best way to handle overlap and I am pretty sure it won’t work with other header layout options.

    You can see how it renders: http://tinyurl.com/yyr4tp6l

    Can you check how it appears on small screens? It flips the icon on it’s side.

    Forgot to note, this is when I have the menu appearing in the left panel. It’s looking more and more like this is a Plugin Compatibility issue. I understand if this is outside the scope of support. Any suggestions you have to fix in left panel menu would be great!
