Nested menu issue: sub menu order and theme page content attached

In the ‘About Me’ menu there are three nested menus: capabilities, experience and education. In the front matter of each nested menu I have the parent:: and weight: values specified in this order: capabilities (weight:: 1), experience (weight:: 2), and education (weight: 3). But, they’re displayed in alphabetical rather than weight order.

When the menu was in root’s config.toml they displayed in the correct order.

Now the parent directory, about, has weight 3 in the main menu but the nested menus seem to ignore their weights in the parent directory.

What have I done incorrectly in specifying the nested menus sequence?

Also, each nested menu displays the staff pictures and blurbs from the justice theme. Please teach me how to remove this theme display.
