I created a second custom menu with sub-level menu items using the admin console GUI.
I added a Theme Location to the admin GUI by adding the following to functions.php:
/* adding second menu, second nav to child theme */ register_nav_menus( array( 'primary' => __( 'Primary Menu', 'CHILDTHEMENAME' ), 'secondary' => __( 'Secondary Menu', 'CHILDTHEMENAME'), ) );
I was then able to add a Custom Menu widget to the Main Sidebar and begin styling the menu.
However, the sub-level menu items appear with the top-level items, but I want the sub-level items to only appear as flyouts (dropdown).
How can I gain control of the menu structure so that the sub-level menu items are not displayed until their parents are hovered over ?
I thought that the menu builder in the admin GUI was supposed to take care of this.
