I've decided to take advantage of the WordPress "Pages" feature. I'm using the Andreas00 template, which populates pages on the left side, using header.php.
I have been trying to find a solution that would only populate the top level of pages and the relevant child pages.
eg. On Home Page
eg. On About Page
I've found a plugin that works quite well for it (although the admin page for the plugin doesn't work) called SPS Suite. I can't find any support pages for that plugin. The plugin works great until you attempt to do a search for something that doesn't exist. It stops loading the page as soon as it hits the sps_list_pages().
I've been searching for days now, and I would really appreciate any help. Even if someone could direct me to something that would produce the same effect using a different plugin (without corrrupting the search).
