[resolved] How do I make new Categories appear in drop downs? (7 posts)

    Someone else made the site for me so I don't know how to do this.

    I Add New Categories and Delete others but they don't show up in my Category drop downs.

    sandandseahomes.com > Properties For Sale > drop down for Listing Type does not display my new Categories and still shows the deleted ones.

    There's obviously another step I don't know about. The theme is a tweaked version of a Blog software. My Property Listings are what used to be blog posts. I don't know much more about it than that.

    Thanks, that looks good - how would I associate a custom menu with existing drop downs?

    Are the existing drop downs already custom menus? If not, how are they generated?

    I can create New Categories just fine, but they don't appear in the list.

    I don't want to create new drop downs because:

    * I wouldn't know how to get rid of the existing ones
    * pages are already associated with values in the existing drop downs
    * I wouldn't know how to control the placement of the new ones

    I was hoping some genius could give me a way of finding out where/how those drop down values are stored. If I knew that, I might be able to store a new value the same way.

    Could I find a drop down value by searching the back end for a unique string?

    Go to Appearance -> Menus, it's probably in there.

    Andrew:

    That was it! Not menus exactly but I found the code containing the drop down values in the Listings Page Template.

    It makes sense that the author would have made the drop downs part of that template because they appear on all Listings pages, then he's just switching out the content to the right.

    I think all I have to do is create a Category and then add it to the list(?). I'll test it.

    Thanks!
