    How can i edit the text when hovering over my menus as shown in the screenshot below, to have it just show the title of the menus?

    For your first question, are you using a custom menu? If so, go to your custom menu, go to the menu item you want to modify, click the little drop-down arrow on the left, and enter your text into the “Title Attribute” field.

    For your second question, I’ll have to do a little digging. But it should be located somewhere in your header.php file.

    Hi Josh, no i am not using custom menus

    #12721

    I too am having an issue of CSS showing up when hovering on the menu items. No custom menus, just regular pages, no descriptions for the pages set, and in theme options, under Display > Navigation Menu Display Options > “Disable description in Header Menu” is checked. Clean, fresh install of WP & theme latest versions are doing this on several sites I just created.

    Any ideas?

    @braintriggers:

    I’m not seeing it. Try refreshing your browser cache.

    It’s DEFINATELY All In One SEO related… disabled it, hover attribute displays correctly on the sites giving me issues… however… I have a dozen other sites with All In One SEO running without any problems…

    http://dev.greatfallsmodelrrclub.org

    http://geocachingforyou.com

    Both built at the same time, both with identical plugins installed… as soon as I enable it on the first site, the issue appears. If I change theme on the first site, no issue.

    #12725

    Ah, but not exactly the same. The geocaching site is using a different theme. (It appears to be based on Graphene, so I’m not sure what this is.)

    Yet another reason I don’t like SEO plugins….

    Before I forget… again… thanks for the quick replies! You are correct, that site is using a Graphene-based theme… bad example, however,

    http://braintriggers.com is using pure Graphene, with All In One, and has the issue as well. I’m not trying to be a pain, but I like the All In One AND Graphene for a lot of my sites, and it appears by process of elimination that it is the theme itself that is not displaying correctly as other themes I’ve tried don’t do this…

    So, short of using another theme, or deactivating All In One, any ideas on how I can work around this?

    Thanks again!

    Somehow I lost the response I was going to post here. Here’s what I think I was going to say:

    Anyway…

    short of using another theme, or deactivating All In One, any ideas on how I can work around this?

    All in One SEO is not the only SEO plugin available, so you may want to try others which play nice with the Graphene theme if you are especially fond of the theme.

    On the other hand, you might want to consider what you can do for SEO without a plugin: good site organization, good content, etc. I am not a big fan of SEO or SEO plugins (don’t get me started on the snake oil that most SEO is), but there’s a lot that you can do to promote your site without using a plugin (organization and content) and there’s a lot you can do to promote your site that a plugin can’t do, such as building a community through a well-maintained blog with a forum, calendar of events, etc.

    Just my two cents, however. I’m a curmudgeon who remembers the internets when spam was just meat byproduct in a can.

    Hahaha… awesome… you must remember back to when <blink> & <marquee> were hot tags (for too many) like I do!

    Thanks again… I’ll stop beating the dead horse and look at alternatives… I know I’ll stay with Graphene tho!

    I found if I put text in the Title Attribute field of the All-In-One-SEO Plugin, then that text will replace the <strong>Home</strong> type code showing up in the menu. It’s a bit redundant, would prefer to not have any text show up when I hover over the menu. But this is better than having the tags showing.

    thank you!! That solved the issue for me so I can move on to more important things!

    I do. I was still in short trousers, but I used them myself, BITD. Now I spend my days mercilessly crushing them.

    It’s a bit redundant, would prefer to not have any text show up when I hover over the menu.

    Have you tried just putting a space or a non-breaking space (option + space bar) in there?

    I know I’ll stay with Graphene tho!

    A wise decision, padawan!

    That solved the issue for me so I can move on to more important things!

    Let’s mark this thread as “resolved” and if anyone else has this issue with this plugin, we can send them here.
