Hover problem with Superfish.js


I have a Wordpress installed in my local pc for testing. I’m using Emagazine theme from iDesignnow.

Everything ran well, until recently I noticed that the responsive Pulldown menu not working anymore.

If I hover on menu, the submenu doesn’t show up anymore. When I checked on the demo site, it also experiences the same problem.

You could check it here: http://emagazine.idesignow.com/
Hovering on GAMES, MOVIE, MUSIC, etc. won’t show the sub menu up.

When I checked using Mozilla Error Console, it reported TypeError: menu is undefined
It seems the problem originated from superfish.js

looking forward some advice on this issue.


Hi there,

The problem is that this theme is including jQuery version 1.9.0 which appears to have broken some things (for example the menu).

This is the line that does it (line 27):

<script type='text/javascript' src='http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js?ver=3.3.1'></script>

If you change that, to this:

<script type='text/javascript' src='http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.8.3.min.js'></script>

Everything will work again.


Excellent answer Dave !
Thanks a lot for your help. It really works now :slight_smile:

Btw, I’m still wondering how this could happen ? I’ve never touched the theme files, it was working well before, and then suddenly it’s just dead.


It seems that the theme is just pulling in the latest jQuery from the Google CDN.
When Google updated jQuery latest to 1.9.0, then thing s broke.
