Your site is looking good overall - how did you get your categories in columns?

One thing I did notice - I went to your Spanish Cuisine and the dynamic preview flash and do not load properly

I'm not sure what you mean about categories in Columns? You meant how I added the categories to the menu?
Yes I noticed that, I don't know why is happening, is only there. In fact I forgot to ask help for this issue.

Ah! Now I got you! I did not do nothing special. When I built the Header Menu I simply added the Symbiostock Image categories (this voice was already in the Above Menu when I installed the Clean Theme. I cancelled the Above Menu and created Header Menu

I suppose that, in order to display  ore sub-menus (third and four), I must add something to the Theme css. But I don't know how to write css. And than, do I have to modify only the css? Or other file too?

I never figured why the down arrows wouldn't always show, so I added them to the menu item labels as needed:

Code: [Select]
<i class="icon-chevron-down">

I am ready to do this, but can you elaborate more? Exactly where should I put that code? I put it into every blank in the below screenshot and it doesn't seem to work. Looks like html, but I am not sure where it should go.

But I don't think you have to put something there. The third and four level sub-categories are already indented under the Header Menu in Appearance->Menus But on the site are not visible the third levels in the drop down menu. If you look in my site at Fruit, you'll be able to see that has the Subcategory Tropical Fruit which has other subcategories, but you cannot see them.
The work it must be done is to add third and four level sub-categories at the main navigation bar in the css of the Clean Theme. Once modified the css, the subcategories will appear.  :)

Just caught up with this.

For example:

I tried adding <i class="icon-chevron-down"> as you showed to one of my menu items that's missing the down arrow and got an amazing "flock of birds in flight" effect all over my home page - lots of arrows, but none anywhere near any menu items!

I removed it - and the display returned to normal. Perhaps with CleanTheme 2.0 as my child theme this isn't an option?

It's still so odd that some sub menus are handled correctly and others not - IOW it should just work...

Whoops, I just realised I hadn't put the closing tag in my code snippet!

It should be:

Code: [Select]
<i class="icon-chevron-down"> </i>
which would explain that effect. Sorry about that!

As you say, it should work, and I have a test installation with the menus built the same way which has all the down-arrows in place. I've been right through the code, which is partly WP core and partly Leo's, and can't see where it goes erratic.

Just to emphasise, that's a space between the tags, and it gets the chevron as a background.

Thanks - that works much better :)

I noted that if I use the code on all menu items with sub menus, I get double on those that got an automatic one. So I guess I will know when the bug gets fixed when I get double chevrons on the menus that now have one :)
