How to fix WordPress Menu

  1. JavaScript Conflict: The most common issue is a JavaScript conflict. This can be caused by plugins, themes, or custom code. Check the browser console for errors by pressing F12 and clicking on the ‘Console’ tab.
  2. Caching Issues: If you recently made changes and they’re not reflecting, it might be a caching issue. Clear your site’s cache from your caching plugin and your browser’s cache.
  3. Plugin Conflict: A plugin might be conflicting with your menu’s functionality. Deactivate your plugins one by one to see if the menu starts working after deactivating a specific plugin.
  4. Theme Issues: If you’re using a third-party theme, it’s possible that there’s an issue with the theme itself. Check if the theme needs an update or contact the theme’s support for help.
  5. Outdated Theme or Plugins: Make sure your theme and all plugins are updated. An outdated theme or plugin can cause compatibility issues.
  6. Menu Configuration: Ensure that your menu is properly set up in Appearance > Menus, and it’s assigned to the correct location.
  7. CSS Issues: Custom CSS or certain theme settings can hide or disrupt the burger menu. Check if CSS rules are affecting its visibility or functionality.
  8. Viewport Meta Tag: Ensure your site’s header includes a viewport meta tag. Without it, responsive designs (like a burger menu on mobile) may not work correctly.
  9. Check with Default Theme: To rule out theme-specific issues, temporarily switch to a default WordPress theme (like Twenty Twenty-One) and see if the problem persists.

By going through these steps, you should be able to pinpoint and resolve the issue with your burger menu.
