i want to turn off the drop down menu. when visitors click on "services" and the page opens up, i want the sub-pages to be listed in the left column.
i am trying to mimic this
how can i achieve this?
i have tried to unchecked the"Enable Drop Down Navigation?" in the admin, but it has no effect. it still acts as a drop down menu,

You'll be able to hide the navbar on the page you have the side menu, or possibly deactivate/hide the sub menu using css on that page only.
You have a menu in appearance>widgets that you can use to display the pages in the sidebar. Again you may wish to style this using css as it will only appear as a list of standard text links.

by the method you suggested the "pages" widget in the sidebar will show all the sections of the website. i just want it to show the sub-pages of the service category. if i want not show other things,i have to exclude so many many sections 1 by 1. there must be a better way. please advise. maybe a paid extension???

If you wish to put a menu in the sidebar of your page, you can do so with a widget. If you wish for this menu widget to display only on specific page(s). Then you can use the plugin Widget Logic, which allows you to display widgets on a per post/page basis.

i need to be able to control the "custom menu" widget on a page by page basis.
and be able to tell the "custom menu" widget which menu to display, on a page by page basis.
to see what i mean, add the "custom menu" widget to the primary sidebar, and you will see that it gives you an option for to select a menu.
on the open page i would choose menu A, on the services pages i would choose Menu B, ..so on and so forth....
that's what i am trying to achieve.

If they don't and you're unable to find a suitable solution you might want to consider getting a custom section built to do this, in which case feel free to check out our pagelines pros at www.pagelines.com/pros/
