Make theme - header menu nav - sub menus not displaying
I have a faculty member using the make theme. She wants to have the main nav located in makes "header nav" location. She is hoping have sub-menus drop down from header nav (same functionality as would exist in primary nav location). However, sub menus are not dropping down as intended, even though they are set up. Site is here: https://phil2101bcmgluzman.commons.gc.cuny.edu/
Is this a bug or a function off theme? Would it be possible to allow/create drop downs from header nav menu location?

This is not so much a bug as a missing feature in the theme. The theme hardcodes a "depth" of 1 when fetching the menu for this specific area. See https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/browser/make/1.10.7/partials/header-layout.php?marks=13. I assume they did it this way so that they wouldn't have to write the desktop+mobile styling+behavior for these sorts of dropdowns. There's no easy way to work around this - it'd have to be in a child theme.
