    Hello i'm a web developer and i'm having problems with a complex wordpress navigation i'm trying to do.

    If you guys are familiar with http://freelanceswitch.com/ (a site that uses wordpress), id'd like to know how i can create a top navigation (that uses list_pages + blog link) with a small brief description under each link just as on freelanceswitch. I know freelanceswitch uses a static css menu with images. But i'm not looking for that.

    I'd like to know how to add the brief description on every page, and i'd also like to know who can i call that descriptiono to the navigation bar / menu, with what tag etc.

    I know PHOTOSHOP / XHTML / CSS and PHP.
    I also know wordpress very well but i didn't manage to find the thing i was looking for. Can you guys help? Please? :-s

    Well, you could try to find a theme that does that already and take it apart to see how it works. Surely there's a theme out there somewhere that does this.

    I've been looking at doing the same when time permits. I'm thinking that defining a custom field key (named 'nav_description' for example) and adding a value (your brief description) on each page.

    Then call the key after the link in the top navigation.
    get_post_custom_values('nav_description')

    Or is there a way to use wp_list_pages to call custom field values?
