Hi– I just got Agile and set up my main navigation down the left column as a Custom Menu under the Header Right widget– there it is, and it looks great, except that there are no arrows / triangles (like there are in the demo) do distinguish which top-level menu items do and don’t have submenus. They all just look like leaf-level items in the tree, until you mouse over and the submenus pop up.
Is there some way of configuring to get those little down-arrows– like the ones on “Page Templates” and “Skin Colors” in the demo?
Thanks!September 25, 2013 at 10:50 pm #7640EricCustomer
The StudioPress developers actually removed the arrow functionality in the latest version of Genesis. So there’s not really an easy way to add them back since the code isn’t there anymore. I think they want you to use a plugin of some sort to display certain functionality in the menu.
The demo you see is actually an older version of Genesis and Agile. Wes is working on a new version of Agile (so be on the lookout for that in the next few weeks).

I’m not sure I understand this– In Agile’s style.css I see menu .sf-sub-indicator set to images/arrow-down.png in a couple of places, and there’s an arrow-down.png image in the agile/images folder. (There is also an arrow-down.png image in the images folder of Legacy, another Genesis theme that I have a copy of.)
Meanwhile, there’s no arrow-down.png in either version 1.8.2 or 2.0.1 of Genesis, both of which I have copies of.
So doesn’t the arrow come from the .sf-sub-indicator setting in the child theme’s css and the arrow-down.png image in the child theme’s image folder?
It’s entirely likely that I’m missing something or am looking at the wrong places in the code– I’m new to WP and themes.
Thanks for your patience, and advice or pointers greatly appreciated!September 26, 2013 at 5:39 pm #7657
OK– I just answered my own question. Here’s how to make the submenu arrows appear under the latest Agile and Genesis– or at least, this is what worked for me:
1. Dashboard / Genesis –> Theme Settings
2. Check “Load Superfish Script?” box under Navigation
3. Save Settings / Refresh
Hope that helps!September 26, 2013 at 10:49 pm #7665EricCustomer
AH I just realized something, you’re using the old markup and not the latest HTML5 version of Genesis. As I mentioned earlier, the agile theme demo that you see is running on the older version of Genesis and they have removed those arrows from the new version of Genesis (the child theme doesn’t add this code).
So for now, those arrows will show up on your site if you have it checked, BUT once you install the new version of the theme (which will be HTML5 and designed for the latest Genesis 2.0) those arrows won’t be there, because StudioPress removed them from the markup. Just a heads up.
Wes is the developer of this theme, and is in the process of redeveloping it for Genesis 2.0…once you do that, check out this plugin that was just released today by Bill Erickson – http://www.billerickson.net/dropdown-menu-class/ it should add the code for those arrows (from what I can see).
