    If I understand you correctly you’re saying that the menu isn’t appearing at the top of the page when you’re outside of the admin section. If that’s the case then your theme might be missing the elements the plugin uses to include the menu.

    Make sure your theme has the wp_head and wp_footer function calls. Those are the parts of the theme used to place the menu on the front end of the website.

    The wp_head function goes inside the <head> of the page:
    <?php wp_head(); ?>

    And the wp_footer function goes at the bottom of the page, perhaps just inside the closing </body> tag:
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    Oh, and I’m not sure what you mean by your second request about 2nd and 3rd level categories.

    no you dont understan me … this is WP admin menu … so it shall be enabled in admin section like http://www.xxx.com/wp-admin
    but I want to see the same style of dropdown menu form my pages when I come to http://www.xxxx.com

    this is sth more
    also I want to have a top menu that is always on top so when you scroll the web the menu stays always on top line

    As you can see in this screenshot:
    http://s.wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-admin-menu/screenshot-1.jpg?r=350400

    The admin bar appears at the top of the site if you’re logged in as an admin whether you’re in the wp-admin section or not. Having the admin bar on the front-end of the site was my whole reason for writing the plugin. If it’s not appearing on the front end of your site you can check the source and see if it’s being included in the page, if it’s not then the template is missing some critical elements.

    I’ll try to include changes to make the menu ‘stick’ to the top of the window in my next release.

    and how does it look like when you are logged of as admin ?
    is still there to show pages ?

    Yes, what you see in that screenshot is what you should see when you’re logged in as the admin. It can also be configured to show for the other levels of membership that might contribute to the site. The only people it can’t be configured to show for are your average registered users who do not see to see any of the admin options for the site.

    The admin bar is visible in the admin section as well as every page on the site if you’re logged in, if you have permission to see it and if the theme is configured correctly.

    Hi,

    I know you designed the admin menu mostly for the front side of wordpress blogs, but could you in the next update have it as an option. I really prefer working with the admin menu in the backend over the original side menu, but prefer not to have it on the webpage/blog/frontend.

    Thank you and regards, Ron

    I’m developing quite a list for the next version, but I’ll be happy to add your request in there as well.

    The option to remove the menu from the front end was added in v1.8. You should receive the notification to update soon, or you can get it here: WordPress Admin Menu :: Jeremy Hixon
