There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Make child pages appear in menu when parent page is clicked?

My site has a lot of pages. I have been using a plugin called Hierarchical pages, which works very nice but the load on the site is very high. I am using WP's built-in menu's now but the result is not the same. The way I have it now, under 'Afzonderlijke werken' (the 3rd left menu widget) is that child pages are not displayed, or, under 'Kritieken' (the 5th left menu widget) are permanently displayed (because I added them manually to the menu). The idea, however, is to have the menu widgets to display child pages only when the respective parent page link in the menu is clicked. Is there any way to achieve this, please?

When you start using menu widgets you are outside the relm of the theme. That said you could probably use CSS to hide all the sub menus (display:none and then use the 'body.page-id-xx' as a prefix to set a 'display:block;' on the page where you want them.

I would test a few menu plugins. I have seen menu plugins that I think would do what you want.
