select-using page menu repeats static Home link

  • isomeme


    Two possibly related issues i’m having…

    First, the more important one. My main (default, page-based) menu in GMNeo repeats the “Home” link in the popup selector. I have it set to use <select>, since it’s a large menu. If I turn off using <select>, the repetition goes away. Both links lead to the same, correct page, my static home page.

    Second, there are a few child pages under that static home page. In all cases in regular Graphene, and most in GMNeo, they show up in the order implied by the page order attribute. But in the list of “In this section” links at the bottom of my Home page in GMNeo, they’re out of order.

    Any help with either of these would be most appreciated.

    For the first issue, check this thread:

    For the second, you can use a custom menu in Graphene Neo to set whichever order you want.



    On the first issue, that thread doesn’t seem relevant. My select-based menu is working; it just doubles up the Home link.

    On the second, I’d greatly prefer to use the same menu across desktop and mobile for ease of maintenance, and the default (page-tree-based) structure works great other than the ordering of “In this section” child pages at the bottom of a root page. Can I file a bug about this?

    On the first issue, that thread doesn’t seem relevant.

    What I am suggesting is that you rule out a plugin conflict before you file a bug report.

    I’d greatly prefer to use the same menu across desktop and mobile for ease of maintenance

    Hence my suggestion to use a custom menu, which both Graphene and Graphene Neo both support.

    Can I file a bug about this?

    Just because it doesn’t work for you doesn’t mean it’s a bug. Which fixes/configurations/settings have you attempted?

    Also, please post a link to your site so that we can take a look.



    Site is:

    I checked for plausible plugin conflicts and didn’t find any.

    I can certainly use a custom menu if that’s the only way, but would prefer to avoid the additional maintenance overhead when changing pages if possible.

    I’ve opened a pair of bugs on these two issues.



    And actually, now that I think about it, a custom menu wouldn’t help here. This is about the sorting of child page links on the parent page. The fact that a default menu is generated from those relationships, and that this generated menu gets the ordering right, isn’t really relevant.



    I found the child-page-link ordering bug, and provided the fix on the bug report thread. There’s a misplaced comma in the ordering argument to the child page query.

    I’m still stumped by the repeated Home link, however.



    Marking this resolved, as both bug reports were acknowledged with fixes planned for the next release. Thanks, team!
