I've come to this with a slightly different approach than most, and have added my own menu system and added it to the header.php (after exhaustive effort to get something similar working through the wp menu functions). It works fine, except when I click onto specific pages or the category pages. why I find this odd is how the category.php (and my own made category-qna) should load the header.php and so I'd expect a similar display, but the menu completely disappears and I even loose some formatting on the header text. I can't see any function calls that would over-ride what header loads, and so I'm really quite stumped here. if anyone can shed any light on this, I'd really, greatly, appreciate it.
by the way, I've modified the basic structure just alittle...
<div id = "whole">
is to give it a background
limits to 1 post display on the index.php
