I have seen this theme before and the problem is caused by over-zealous CSS in the theme stylesheet.

Please see this thread - https://simple-press.com/suppo.....e-display/

Note that neither of those users ever came back to tell me if the fix worked. Perhaps you could try it and let me know.

I'm still seeing two menus. 

FYI: Me too, in Firefox. But unfortunately I have no advice for a possible fix.

You mean you are seeing this as well Jim?

if you are using the same theme then the same fix might work. Just waiting for one of the three people who reported it to come back and tell me if it does.

Okay, almost got it...changed in the styles.css file:

 

.selectBox-dropdown to .searchbutcat .selectBox-dropdown, and got rid of everything but the text link, lol. So, how do I get rid of the text link..

That's sad when others don't update threads like this, as it leaves everyone wondering if the help they received worked or not when they don't share their results..But we're about a find out or come up with a solution, I hope 🙂

Yes - I think we are nearly there.
The problem - of anyone is interested - is that the theme defined this style to be very broad so it will effect ALL select boxes...

Try the same thing but this time preface the selectBox-label with the same .searchbutcat - in fact you coiuld just preface any mention of selectBox.

Hope that fixes it up.

Nope, that link doesn't want to go away..

Here's the line of code I found, and I've tried different ways to preface it..

 

.selectBox-dropdown .selectBox-label{width:100%; padding:0

Is that the only reference?

Then try replacing that line with

.searchbutcat .selectBox-dropdown,
.searchbutcat .selectBox-label { width:100%l padding:0 }

See if that fixes it.

And I just noticed that when I put:

.selectBox-dropdown .searchbutcat .selectBox-label

That is messes up the text on the rest of the site that uses dropdown...
