I would like to have a categories page in a grid layout but can only see the categories as sidebar items in the iblog pro theme. Am I missing something? Also I would like to have small thumbs appear in the sidebar next to the categories too, any thoughts? Finally, could I have a dropdown menu in the top nav bar that showed all my categories? Would be great to get some help on this, I love the theme but am struggling here. Can someone please help a novice here :-( Thanks, Ady

You can list the categories on your posts page, using the categories nav option.. creating a grid layout is always a challenge on the web.

Also I would like to have small thumbs appear in the sidebar next to the categories too, any thoughts?

Can be done, and wp2.9 makes it easier. This is an 'expert' type customization. I like the idea though and we'll look into making it an option in future updates.

Finally, could I have a dropdown menu in the top nav bar that showed all my categories?

Yes, but you'd have to use a plugin called 'page links to'
