mariarobinson - I was having this same issue. When I looked at my main menu here: http://localhost/localwp.com/wp-admin/nav-menus.php - my Theme locations > Primary Menu checkbox was not checked. Checking it cleared up the issue for me.

Please take a look at the final code examples and compare them to the code you are using to display the menu.

Hi Zac, Thanks for your quick response, I have checked my code and even relaunched the site using only the final code example files. Nevertheless, the nav only appears in the top left of the screen. Any more thoughts?

Thanks for your help Trevor. You have solved my problem saving me a whole bunch of time. Cheers!

Yes, great answer Trevor. I was having the same problem and this solved it for me.
