    You can re-asign your drop-down styles (found in the css) to take the shape of your newly created “list”

    Find out what class or ID your list is being rendered too and either change that to the previous class or ID of the exsisting drop down menu or change the css to match the name of the newly rendered.

    To find what the current class is you can right click anywhere on your browsers white(empty) space and click the option to View Source.

    Find some of the links and deter which class or ID they call. look for these Items

    <ul class=” — whatever its named —“>


    the container that surrounds it

    <div class” — whatever its named —“>

    Let me know



    Will this bring my dropdown menu back the way it was? I really need it…lots of pages and more to come.



    I am using dark_classic template. I cut out the menu code from the header.php file…then pasted in new code from multi navigational plugin…etc…So it’s kinda custom. I am just now learning PHP, CSS and MySQL…newby. 🙁
    Can you still maybe help me? Please… 🙂
    Thank you.



    The biggest problem I have with this stuff is…naming conventions.
    Permalinks is a great example. That was the SIMPLEST solution I have found YET, but all solutions are really, thus far, in understanding the unconventional ways coders name this stuff. To me it is absurd. I very easily figured this out after reading blog after blog…forums etc…(and getting NO WHERE.)…just to realize a permalink “itself” is a “naming convention”. Sheeesh! lol
    Also “embedded gallery!”…”SMF”…Why not just say the button labelled WPG2 in WP Dashboard??? UGGH!…

    Oh…and yes I kept my cool dropdown hack. 🙂

    It may behoove all of us if we could just simplify our comunication into laymens terms, if you must”…
    Thank you all VERY much. And I do sooo much appreciate WP, it’s coders, theme designers, plugin authors and more…I do indeed plan on making donations as soon as I go live with all of my own tweaks, graphics and more.
    Thank you and God bless.
