    I suspect my problem may be that I am used the WP 3 menu system improperly but I am using it as I have since it became available. I get TWO nav-bar entries for each menu when using the plugin.
    Can anyone possibly offer some help?

    I just created an account at your site to view the problem but I guess you don’t have the plugin activated at the moment.

    Do you mean to say that you get double menus in the adminbar, or in your main menu?

    I re-activated the plugin to start troubleshooting again. I will leave it initialized. The double entry is the main menu. Take a look. If you need admin access let me know.

    Do you mean the “Community” dropdown menu in your theme’s main menu? That looks to be either hardcoded in the theme, or you’ve added it to one of your custom menus?

    No. In fact, I assumed that was normal for BuddyPress. I am talking about the other menu items. For instance, the TOOLS (Members) is the name of a menu and the items showing in the next column of the main menu (Membership info, etc) are pages under that menu. As you can see, there is nothing under TOOLS (Members) on the front page – all the items that supposed to be under it are showing as a separate dropdown to the right of TOOLS (Members) on the front page menu.

    I reallly suspect that I have been using the WP 3 menu creation tool wrong all these years. Maybe the problem is in some way related to how I have the pages organized in the Pages creation function of WP. I have hundreds of pages but they all fall under a dozen or so other pages (as sub-pages).

    “I reallly suspect that I have been using the WP 3 menu creation tool wrong all these years.”

    WP custom menus only appeared with WordPress3.0, and that came out on June 17, 2010. So I’m thinking there’s some confusion or misunderstanding in the way you have your menus structured.

    If you could give me admin access, I could take a look at your menus and page structure to see what’s conflicting.

    Problem solved on your site. It was a theme conflict in the plugin code. Your menu structure is fine. :-)

    I sent you an email with the details.

    I really appreciate the help. I am finding that plugin is helping me organize the menus so the plugin is more than just a menu plugin – it’s also a visual guide to organization (for me at least).
    One quick note, it appears that the “scroll with page” option is reversed: yes is no and no is yes.
    Again, thanks for the help.

    I’m having a similar issue working with the BuddyBoss child theme. With the plugin activated, the name of my custom menu appears with no menu items in the drop down. The top tier menu items in the custom menu appear as separate menu buttons, and correctly have sub-pages where assigned. But there’s a dead menu link in the admin bar with the custom menu name.

    If I build a custom menu with only one tier of menu items, all appears as separate menu items (no in drop down format) alongside the dead menu link with the custom menu name.

    You can see the (in development) site at http://milvetpeer.net

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for this plugin — I believe it’s the solution I’m looking for, if I can get it configured.

    Clarification to my last post:

    The menu item “WP Pages Nav” is the name of the WP custom menu that contains the menu hierarchy

    Welcome (a.k.a. “Home’)
    About Us
    > What is MVPN?
    > MVPN Blog
    > Contact

    Ideally, either the custom menu name would not generate a menu item, or it could be renamed “Welcome” and link to the “Welcome” page.

    Thanks again.
