I have a website (Bootstrap 4, Dropdown js) that when I open it, a dropdown menu appears open
what’s happening and how do I stop it happening
don’t seem able to find the answer doing just a quick google search
Hi @RustyRiley I’ve just checked it on my computer and phone and it’s not doing what you’ve described. Try clearing your cache and see if it changes the behaviour you’re getting. Let us know how you get on with it.
it doesn’t show up on phones — where the hamburger appears
but it does show up on larger displays where the navbar extends across the full width of the screen
still getting used to this forum’s tools, but if those images have uploaded correctly, you’ll see what I mean
moving from the older pink desktop to the newer green one
You appear to have the class “.open” applied to that menu item when the page loads. I loaded your live page in Pinegrow and took a look. See the attached screengrab. Your other dropdown menu items do not have this class applied when the page first opens. I’ve circled it in pink.
that wasn’t “my” intention
that page was developed in a third-party builder program – I had given up on getting a reply to my query, and felt “guilty” for posting it here, since it had been done in that builder
this is actually a bug in that program – if one opens the menu and then leaves after having it open – even if it’s not open when actually exiting, the program, at its own initiative, must create that code
– it’s “well known” that selecting a non-dropdown option results in that effect not appearing
that program is good for “drag-and-down” “design” by computer neophytes, lacking much knowledge of design / html / css etc but …
clearly it has more bugs than most are aware of
== I’ll bring that to the attention of other users of the program, and that program’s support staff
