Remove arrows showing top-level menu items with children

    How can I remove the v-shaped arrow that appears next to menu items that have sub-items? I am using a child theme and would like to remove the arrows from both the Header menu and the Footer Menu.

    #header-menu > li.menu-item-ancestor > a {
    background: none;
    padding-left: 15px;
    }

    Thanks, that worked! I did, however, need to adjust the padding-left; didn’t need 15px without an icon in the area.

    The default padding was around 25px. So, I thought that it would help you if I decrease the padding by 10px. 🙂

    Thanks for thinking ahead by decreasing the padding. Just didn’t decrease it enough to deal with my many menus. But thanks for being proactive.

    Hi guys, i have just joined this forum after starting to use this theme.

    Im stuck with the issue of arrows showing up on my nav bar.

    I have pasted the code above into the css file but nothing changed.

    Could I be doing it incorrectly some how? have I missed a step?

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    @pb1013 Clear your browser cache by pressing Ctrl+F5. Then see again. Drop down arrow is not there in your site.

    Rookie mistake, sorry about that.

    I have a new area of concern that has me ripping what little hair I have left, out.

    When I click on one of the navigation’s sub menus, a banner displays things like;”Category Archive: Corporate”

    Any hints on how i can fix this?

    What have i done wrongly when setting up my menus?

    That’s a category archive. You can’t really fix it because it’s not really broken.

    There is a way around this, but it’s a two-step process.

    1) Create pages for these categories, and then use Kalin’s Post List plugin to add all the pages in that category. Here’s a tutorial on that plugin:

    2) Use a custom menu in your menu bar, instead of the default that shows up. Here’s a tutorial:

    Then, instead of using categories in your custom menu, use the pages you created in step #1.

    I’m gradually switching all my archives over to this method.
