5 Potential Diagnoses

jQuery version incorrect 139 [ + ]

UberMenu 3.0 requires jQuery 1.11.1 or higher (but less than jQuery v2), which should automatically be included with WordPress 3.9 or higher. If your theme or another plugin has changed the jQuery version, that can cause javascript errors that can break the menu as well as other javascript component on your site.

UberMenu javascript is not loaded 43 [ + ]

If a WordPress theme does not include the required hooks (wp_footer), UberMenu can’t load its javascript, so javascript functionality like animations, triggers, and maps will be lost.

View Solution

jQuery Enhancements disabled (UberMenu 2 only) 26 [ + ]

If you disable jQuery Enhancements, you will lose all javascript functionality in the menu, including animations, maps, non-hover triggers, and the responsive menu toggle expansion.

View Solution

Unrelated javascript error 31 [ + ]

If another plugin or your theme throws a javascript error before UberMenu’s javascript has been executed, it will prevent UberMenu from functioning properly, including submenu positioning, click events, responsive menu toggling, and more.

Using $ outside of a closure ($ is not defined or is not a function) 6 [ + ]

When you’re using a modular system like WordPress, it’s important that all jQuery is compartmentalized and running in noConflict mode in order to avoid conflicts. When other themes/plugins don’t follow this standard, you’ll get jQuery errors that break other scripts, like UberMenu.
