Drop Down Nav, Home button, and more...

WP 3.0.1 iBlogPro 4.1.5 or Whitehouse 3.0.9 (switched temporarily) Fresh install of WP, recommended plugins, and themes on test site: http://www.getalifestory.com/ Active sites: http://www.thevillagesmug.com/ http://www.therestoforlando.com/ I have noticed that after upgrading some "Active" sites to iBlogPro 4.1.5 from 4.1.0 (could have been 4.1.3) the following problems: 1. Drop Down menus are not working 2. The default page shows up in the menubar in addition to the home button I stripped everything from my "test" site and installed everything fresh (WP 3.0.1, iBlogPro 4.1.5, 5 recommended plugins). I find the same problems. I have added 2 child pages to the About page. Either I don't understand how the newer themes integrate with WP 3.0.1 or have missed the DWIM button (Do What I Mean). Do the menus need to be defined manually in Appearance / Menu to work now? If so, that does seem to be a step backwards. I have tried adding a menu, but doing so strips all existing menu items. I tried switching to Whitehouse and found the same issues. Thanks! Jim

Hi! I have the same problem with my setup. I had WordPress 3.0 and didn't get dropdown menus to work. I just removed my whole page and did a complete re-install with a new database and the iBlogPro Theme with Wordpress 3.0.1 with NO luck. Tried to make own menus, activated drop-down and nothing seems to help. I would be very happy to see this problem resolved soon since I need the page to work very soon. Im using the theme for a school! Regards, Michael

Unfortunately, this is the way the new menus in WordPress are handled, and it was/is out of our control to try and make the switch easier for all of you. The answer is yes. You have to go in a and create the menu using the WP3.0 menus panel. Also keep in mind that after creating a new menu you will have to define where your menus are located ( " theme locations " ) Drag and drop not only controls ordering of menus, but the hierarchy and thus drop downs.

@cmunns Thank you for answering in such short time! I didn't know that it was possible to drag pages in under other pages to make child-menus but it works. This saved my day :)
