I installed the Genesis Simple Menus, but now, like many other plugins i've installed, i don't see anywhere where the interface for this plugin is added to my dashboard. I also don't know what it means to activate genesis secondary menus. Whenever i go to Menus and create a custom menu, my menu bar at the top of the page disappears...and that's all that happens, no other menu shows up. I don't want my horizontal menu bar to disappear, i want to add a secondary vertical menu, to individual pages. Also, when im creating a custom menu, it's giving me the option just to add elements of my primary menu. Why would i want to create a secondary menu with the same links as my primary menu? I need to create a menu on each page with links to access information specific to that page. For example, one link on my primary horizontal menu bar is POETRY, then on the POETRY page, i want a vertical menu listing collections of works, that open pages containing links for individual works. I may want some of these vertical menus to contain fold outs or just bulleted subsets.
I've been fiddling with menus and installing plugins and i'm getting nowhere creating this element that seems pretty basic to many websites.
Thanks for your help.
