Can't see all of the options in a link list drop-down This post is outdated

I am in the process of converting to the Mobilia theme and was creating a Link List of various categories but could not see all the options. There appears to be no link to a 2nd page of categories. I can do a search and find them but that is not how it should function.

 

See attached.

Hi Clint, I just purchased Mobilia for the very reason that it was one of the Themes that had this functionality. I too am experiencing this issue. I'm hoping it will be fixed sooner rather than later because we are launching our website very soon!

Sarah, the issue I posted was a bug within the new Shopify 2 manager interface. Are you having a problem building drop-down menus for your website? It took me some time but I finally figured out how to do that. If you need help with that part let me know and I will try to explain it. You can check out our site that was launched last weekend with the Mobilia theme: www.backtoafricastore.com

I see, thanks Clint. Still, I haven't been able to figure out the drop down menu functionality. I also wanted sub menus as well if that makes sense which I've noticed you haven't used on your website (looks great btw!). When I bought the Mobilia (Tokyoteas) theme it showed in the demo that when you scrolled over the 'shop' button, underneath there were two options. One was just a heading that you could click on and go to the premium teas and the other was a follow on drop down menu of sorts which is the very thing i'm after. 
Any help would be much appreciated, but I have emailed the developers (perhaps a little too soon)...

From the support page for the Mobilia theme: http://tokyo-teas.myshopify.com/pages/theme-settings#dropdown-menu I hope that helps!

Hi Caroline. Thanks for that. Not quite what I was looking for though. I'd like to have a sub menus in my dropdown links like they do on the example site for the theme. http://tokyo-teas.myshopify.com/ clicking on Shop then Teaware brings up a sub menu. Any idea how this is achieved ?

The same principle applies for the second-tier drop-down as explained in the documentation. You create a link list with same name as the link ( in drop-down menu ) you want the second tier drop-down menu for. Makes sense?

I have another issue now. I've managed to create sub menus successfully. However I am using the same word in several of them - in this instance Brand - and I am unable to link to different pages in each instance. I can only link to one page. Anyone know how I can assign the link correctly ?

Hi Tim, you will need to use different words. The drop-down menu 'hack' relies solely on a naming convention.
