I'm getting a strange behavior with the responsive menu icon ("hamburger") on my WP site which runs on Genesis and Lifestyle Pro.https://www.successdegrees.com/
The responsive menu icon is not showing on phones. I have disabled plugins and it does not make any difference. Strangely, when I open inspect element on a browser and reduce view to mobile, the responsive menu icon shows ONLY if I am logged in to site, not if I am logged out. Website is https://www.successdegrees.com/November 27, 2019 at 9:13 am #495089
Sounds like a plugin conflict. You should first clear all cache and deactivate Autoptimize. Check it. Then perform a plugin conflict. It looks like you are using an older version of Lifestyle Pro but because ot the Autoptimize I am unable to view the source code.

I did deactivate Autoptimize previously and it made no difference. Disabled most of the other plugins as well. But I'm not clear on what you mean by perform a plugin conflict / sorry.
I have disabled Autoptimize and I believe I have cleared the cache. Want to take a look?

A plugin conflict means to disable all of the plugins except the ones recommended by the theme you are using. Did you do that? You are using theme version 3.1 which is almost 5 years old.

The most recent lifestyle per version I see on Studio Press is 3.2.4 last updated in June of 2017. Should I update to that? Doesn't seem like a very recent iteration.November 29, 2019 at 1:27 pm #495126
Yeah that would still make your theme three years old. If the menu just stopped working for you, and you have deactivated all of the plugins to rule out a conflict, then I'd first look at your original files against you website to see what may have broken down. You customized your version of Lifestyle Pro so much that it doesn't even look like it. So maybe do some code comparisons to see what may have stopped working before switching.

Well it's all customized via a css file in the child theme. If I keep that should I be OK? I didn't really edit any of the genesis files.
So is it a mistake to use lifestyle pro? It's a little irksome to me that genesis recommends this as a child theme and then doesn't keep up with updates.November 29, 2019 at 1:53 pm #495128
Well they did update it in 2017. It may not require any updates beyond 2017. You are using the 2014 version. I would suggest before you do anything, maybe clone your site and put it on a staging area. Make all the changes there to make sure thing work properly. Then move it over to Live.

Hi I have followed instructions and installed updated lifestyle pro, and after a few tweaks the site seems good. The only problem is that an issue I had previously has returned. On a phone, the responsive menu shows in the "open" position showing all sub links. I have disabled all plugins to no effect, except for one: Disabling w3 total cache makes the responsive menu look even worse on a phone - both the hamburger for the reponsive menu AND the sub links show. Not sure what to do. If you look at the site now on a phone you'll see just the sublinks on the responsive menu showing as I have re-activated w3 total cache.December 1, 2019 at 4:46 am #495142December 1, 2019 at 1:04 pm #495146
Well no but the only real customizations I have done are appearance tweaks in custom css or in theme editor style.css.
FYI I just updated my other site to newer lifestyle pro version and now that site has the same problem with responsive menu collegedegreecomplete.comDecember 1, 2019 at 1:17 pm #495147
Hold it - it's he plugin w3 total cache. Do you have an alternative to that you can recommend for minifying scripts?December 1, 2019 at 2:55 pm #495150
