I have added the language switcher to my site in the menu - hidden link. In the preview in the Dashboard, the switcher shows a white arrow next to the text. When i look at it on my website, I don't see the white down arrow. I need the arrow to show so that users will know there are more options. I've tried some of the other CSS fixes listed in previous articles, but they do not appear to work (maybe the code is outdated). I am using Avada as my parent theme. Any help you can give me would be great.

Please add this CSS classes to your style.css file located in your current theme's folder:

	padding-right: 10px !important;
}
#menu-top-nav li.wpml-ls-item:after{
    font-family: 'Fontawesome';
    content: "\f0d7";
    color: #fff;

Thanks! This worked for the top item but it also makes arrows for the sub-items as well. Those items don't need arrows. What would be the CSS to change that? (see image)

I'm sorry, I forget to add a ">" element. The final code is:

.wpml-ls-slot-2.wpml-ls-current-language a{
    display: inline-block;
    padding-right: 10px !important;
}
#menu-top-nav > li.wpml-ls-item:after{
    font-family: 'Fontawesome';
    content: "\f0d7";
    color: #fff;
    display: inline-block;
    padding-right: 20px;
}

Regards,
Carlos

Hello,

The problem it's very similar than before. I've tried some of the other CSS fixes listed in previous articles, but they do not appear to work. I have added the menu language switcher to my site in the menu hidden link In the preview in the Dashboard, the switcher shows a arrow next to the text. When i look at it on my website, I don't see it. At the moment the people who enter to my page can use onIy the first lenguage. I am using Avada.

Moreover, i'd like to have a Dropdown Language menu items style. I'd like to have like this page: hidden link it's: " /cat /es /en /fr ".

I don't why, but i can't do it. I follow some css that you've writter before but it isn't work.

Thank a lot, i wait some answer.

Aleix.
