Go to Wordpress admin, then appearance, then menus. Create your menu and then assign it to the "Theme Locations." Also look the WHP Headers and Nav settings to turn on drop down menus if you want them.

thanks Chris- okay - updated menu and assigned it to theme locations - still no drop downs - not sure where you mean WHP Headers or Nav Settings drop downs?

Noah i think my answer to your other thread will help you. I suppose WP hasn't been very clear or documented their new features very well...

- Of course, first make sure that you're using the latest versions of WordPress and your theme. - Now from your WordPress admin, see the menu on the left, there should be a tab with your themes name, click that and go to: Theme Options > Header and Nav there is a checkbox there to enable the dropdown function, enable it and save. - In WordPress 3.0+ menus are now handled differently, you have complete control over them, go to: Appearance > Menus Create a new menu, naming it "Main" should be fine, after setting your top level pages, setting sub-pages is a bit trickier. You need to put the sub-pages below their parents, but off-centered/indented to the right. You'll have to fiddle with the drag and drop feature a bit, it's a little clunky. Thanks, Bryan

I see your website is here: http://pghfirm.com/ and you're testing your new site here: http://pghfirm.powweb.com/ I'm inclined to wonder if there are any limitations to this testing environment, you may need to check with your host. Also, you'll have to migrate everything over when you move it. Thanks, Bryan
