  • Hi 5feetroundtheworld!

    For starters I have to say I love the look of your site. Very nice!

    Just glancing at it, you should be able to accomplish this using categories for each of your posts. I see that they are all listed under uncategorized currently. If you were to change the category on each post you want listed as a destination, and then set the dropdown menu to display a specific category, in this case destination, then it should group them all together by category.

    I know in the past I’ve created menu items from categories that list each post under that category so I think this should work. Try that out and let me know if it works for you or not.

    Cheers!

    Thank you for that!

    Can you give me a step by step on just how to do that?

    I want to have a hierachy in my drop down menu.
    Example, destination -> india -> himalaya.

    How do i do that and whats slug?

    It looks like you have your posts categorized now with the “India” category so I won’t worry about that. As for the hierarchy in the drop down, I’ll have to think a bit on that one since it looks like you’re running a premium theme and I’m not familiar with the setup.

    I created a quick video for a possible solution. Try this and see if it fits in with what you want:

    Try that and see if you can set each of the dropdown items to the categories you are wanting. Let me know how it works.

    Thanks for the video! I needed that so bad 🙂 you’ve made my day.
    Yep, gave it a go, and now i have a destination menu with a drop-down which only shows India though, and not the subs like himalaya etc.

    The categories at the bottom looks a little weird too- its india, himalaya, Calcutta without hierachy!

    Hmm, I’m getting a bit stumped on this one. Without seeing how the theme is setup and the options you have for the lower dropdown menus, I’m not sure exactly how the dropdowns would be setup without using some sort of custom option.

    With this being a premium theme, you should be able to contact the theme author to see if the feature is available to do what you want.

    I apologize I couldn’t be of more help to get this resolved. If I think of anything else I’ll be sure to let you know.

    Where did you download the theme from?

    Here’s the link to the theme developers website:

    Link

    It looks like there is a support and contact area there where you should be able to get in touch with the developer.

    It just showed up on the list of themes together with the others..
    Hmm I didn’t pay for the theme though, so I cant use their support system
