Problem with off canvas menu item dropdown/display

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Hi all,

I have created a website using the biz startup responsive template. As part of the template comes an off canvas menu. However, regardless of mobile device or desktop, I cannot get the menu separator to either 1) not display at all or 2) create a dropdown to show its submenu items.
Currently I have the menu separator as "about us" with 3 sub menu pages in "what is cultural heritage", "our company" and "our services.

In addition, when using the normal expanded menu, hovering over the separator with a mouse offers no issue, however, I cannot bring the drop menu diwn with a touch screen device.

I have been looking at different ways, but finally admiited defeat and now seeking assistance. so just reiterate the points:

- touch screen cannot open the dropdown (but mouse over can)
- off canvas menu want to have a dropdown when clicking/touch the menu separator
- remove the separator display altogether and only show sub menu items for it.

Help is much appreciated. Can PM details if need to hsave a look, thanks

For the off canvas menu module, you should prepare another menu in the menu manager and put the menu items which you want there. You shouldn't use the same menu as you use on the main menu because off canvas doesn't provide support for dropdowns

Thanks Igor, a quick and easy solution that I was so stupid not to think of myself :D Much appreciated!

On one of the other issues regarding the touch screen devices and the normal menu, I noticed this tend to happen with IE only, an not any other browser. I think this is not too much of a major issue, but if you have any advice from previous/similar problems, then this would be great as well.

Thanks for the help! ;)
