Support » Themes and Templates » Categories as drop-down menu instead of pages

  • Hi there!

    I have always used a lot of different themes for my site but now I wanted to make my own.
    I came head to head with a problem of mine.
    I don’t use my page as a blog rather than a normal page with different sections.

    I still post everything in posts to get the good category structure.
    I have seen a lot of themes using the pages as drop-down menus at the top of the site.
    I want to do this but with categories.

    Say I have a category names ‘programs’ and a sub-category to ‘programs’ named ‘for linux’.
    At the top of the page I want the menu to list ‘programs’ and as a drop-down ‘for linux’.
    And when you click ‘for linux’ you get to the normal page listing the entrys in the category.

    The problem now is how do I costumize the category listing to be ‘

    • Programs
      • for linux

    ‘ ? 🙂

  • You could create your own with css, or you could use a plugin like WP-dTree.

    Well I want to make my own.
    I already know how to css it and make the hover thing work.
    The problem I am having is how to I customize the output when getting the category listings?
    I can output them as a ul with li’s in it but how do I make it so subcategories is made another ul with li’s?


    I don’t understand. Isn’t that the output by default? Before the categories, there is a ul, then each category is wrapped in an li. The same thing happens with the children categories and so on.
