Hi David, the meta widget can be added to any widgetized area in a theme, but if you want the links in the meta widget to be part of a custom menu instead, you can always add each link manually to your menu as a custom link.
Let me know how it goes. If you need further help, providing a link to your site would be helpful.
The concept I’ve been working on has undergone a major revision – wow, that sounds like I’ve really done something great!
I’ve realised that the way I want it to work will only work if I have multi-site – and you guessed it – I have installed my current site in its own subdirectory – because I used named virtual hosts and it seemed a good idea at the time.
So, I’m going to have to reinstall in the root directory and start from scratch. Such is life.
I’m sure I’ll be back, though as I really like the Syntax theme.
