Page Tabs Parent/Child Page – Please Help!

  • I am trying to make a drop-down menu for pages ie. the tabs on the top of the page – with the parent page showing 5 or 6 sub-pages. For some reason even when I register this, the menu is coming up horizontally and looks like a jumbled mess. Any ideas on how to make it a drop down!? Maybe I’m missing something really obvious? Thanks!

  • dropdowns are all about the CSS, and the CSS is tricky. If you are not comfortable trying to fix it, you are much better off using a theme that already has dropdowns built in.

    If you really want to adapt dropdowns to the theme you are working on, my suggestion is find a theme that already has dropdowns in it, and study how the CSS is being applied.

    Having said that, the short answer to your question is its quite likely that “display: inline” is (correctly) being applied to the horizontal top-level LI tags. The second level LI tags that are to be vertical need to be styled as “display: block”

    Thank you for responding so quickly! That definately helps clear things up and I was going about that all wrong. I will look into the CSS now and see what I can re-format and if not will just have to pay someone else to do it..this probably doesn’t classify as one of my skills! Thanks again!
