CAUTION: Vertical menus turn into a horizontal inline display! Due to Bootstrap5 flex property on UnorderedLists with class "nav". For instance in sidebars and bottom footer menus.
Here is one way to solve it:
Go to Module Manager -> YourMenu module -> Advanced tab -> Menu Class Suffix
Enter " flex-column" as additional class value. Remember to have a leading BLANK character. This bootstrap utility class changes your flexbox display to a vertical direction
