Long Drop Down List?

Recommended Posts

dhdeanhallcom

Hi, I'm designing my site with PlatformPro (love it!) and would like some input on how to display the titles of around 50 poems. I currently have around 12 poems on single pages and have them under a "Poetry" parent on the nav. As I add more I think it's going to be too much for the drop down and the titles won't be displayed or, if they were, the list would be too long. Any suggestions? Thanks, Dean

Hey Dean, is there a logical way to split the poems into categories?

Hi Tim, Yes. I could split them into villanelle, free form, haiku, etc. I think I'll eventually end up with a lot of free form poems from the daily blog. I'm open to suggestions. Dean

Are you comfortable with PHP? You can display lists of posts in many different ways (for example, all in one category) using the Wordpress query_posts() function. http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/query_posts You can place any custom code you want at different places in your them by using hooks: http://www.pagelines.com/docs/base-child-theme So you would be pasting the list code in functions.php.
