List component parent/child entries

Hi

I created a list with parent and child entries.

I have the list on a page, in a Tab Container. The Appearance.Template is set to Standard.

The child entries do not appear in the list; only the parent entries appear.

How do I get the child entries to appear?

    Please update your forum profile with a recognisable username instead of "User_GP1QN".

    Always state your full APEX version number when posting a question.

    Which template?

    What is the list template?

    Depends on why they are not appearing. Maybe the list hierarchy isn't properly configured. Or the list template doesn't have support for hierarchical lists. Give us the complete picture.

    I've updated my forum profile.

    I am using Apex Version...20.2.0.00.20. Universal Theme

    I created a list via: Shared Components-> Navigation - Lists

    the list is being used in a region (Region type = Static, Region Appearance Template = Tabs)

    The Attributes of the list are set to: List -> Attribute -> Appearance -> Links List

    The list template is Links List (Theme = Universal , class = Vertical Unordered List without bullets)

    Using the Links List template, sublists are only shown when the parent item is current for the page. This is controlled using the Current List Entry settings for a static list entry or the [is_current] column position in dynamic list queries.

    Otherwise they can be displayed by applying the is-expanded class to the parent element in User Defined Attribute 3 (A03) in static lists/the [attribute3] column in dynamic lists, or adding it using dynamic actions.

    I have a possibly related problem. I am running Product Build 211.4, Patch Version 4. I built an application about 3 years ago on this server under a previous version. I hadn't used it in quite a while but when I did so a few days ago, all of the child tabs are missing. In the Desktop Navigation Menu I have numerous entries and many of them have a Parent - see attached.

    None of those appear. Something appears to have happened as a result of an update to the APEX version. I apologize for not religiously reading the notes when a new release is deployed.

    Not related. The Navigation Menu does not use the Links List template.

    Create a new thread with a clear description of the problem.
