Creating drop down menu and submenu for sidebar? (5 posts)

    Ok I'm really a dummy with programming etc. So I would prefer a plugin/widget solution...
    Here is my problem: I want to create several drop down menus in my sidebar.
    What I want is to have the main sections, and when rollover they display the sub-section which are the pages (my site is build around pages, not post or categories).
    Ideally same principle for a another sub-level with subpages displayed from pages when rollover.
    I really want the pages to appare/dissapear in cascade when rollover, so an accordion menu is not what I am looking for really.I don't want to have to click on the section to display the page.
    Something like what you see on the left column of this website

    I am currently using Dirtylicious template but will probably change later on so I would like a solution that works with not too much programming if possible...
    WP menu manager and the dropdown widget did not get me where I want...]

    Thanks!

    Add me to the list of people who'd like to have the ability to add a fly-out dropdown menu to a sidebar menu.

    It's very odd to me that this very common feature of most other CMS's isn't readily available in WordPress. I guess the functionality is sort of there with custom menus and if you know how to code. But I don't know how to code.

    A Menu is basically and unordered list, styling them can be done with CSS and functionality can be gained using JavaScript, jQuery, and other techniques.

    Many themes include additional menu options as do plugins.

    Therefore, you have wide ranging options with WP on how to create menus.

    I've not seen many themes that offer flyout dropdown sidebar menus. Nor are there many plugins for that and the few that I have run across are not rated very highly. I'd like to hear some specific recommendations if you have any.
