I don't know if this is the right place to put this. If not, please let me know which forum area is best.
I need to replicate a php/mysql site I wrote and have been maintaining for a guild of which I'm a member. Because I'm not a WP guru, this is going to be a bit of a learning curve and any direction/help/advice you can provide would be of inestimable help.
This is the site I'm converting => RDQG.org
My first challenge is to have the sub-menus for the main menu items appear in the left sidebar when the main menu item is selected. Am I correct in assuming this is a functions.php thing? Or is it something I need to write into the actual template, thereby restricting me to a custom template. I don't see this as a bad thing, I just want to clarify which direction I should be heading.
