How to create horizontal menu under header

  1. Hello,

    I'm trying to create a custom menu under my header such as the one for http://thepatternedplate.wordpress.com when I create the menu it appears above my header due to my theme, is there a way I can change it? When I create my pages through the HTML TXT widget it works but not with custom menus

    The blog I need help with is lacijordan.wordpress.com.

  2. Please be aware that the blog you point to waering the Imbalance 2 theme was customized via the purchase of an annually renewable custom design upgrade and CSS editing. If you have purchased the upgrade and have CSS editing skills then post again and I'll flag this thread so it gets moved to the CSS Forum for you.

  3. If you are going to use Imbalance 2 then I'll save both you and I some time. (Note what I post below is not about CSS editing at all).

    Imbalance 2 offers two layout options, fluid and fixed.
    Fluid means the width changes according to screen resolution (or the width of browser) your visitors use.
    Fixed means the width does not change according to screen resolution (or the width of browser) your visitors use.

    Column one is the blog title and tagline; you edit them in Settings > General.
    Columns two and three are for two custom menus; you create and load them in Appearance > Menus - instructions here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
    Column four is for widgets; you add them in Appearance > Widgets.

    You need to set a featured image in each post in order to see the thumbnail in imbalance 2. Click on the module that has 'featured image' in it (if you don't see the module, look at the top of the editor window for 'screen options' and check it') then the image editor will appear. Browse to the image you want to use, via that, in the usual way, and then when you've found it, click the 'featured image' and when it appears in the module (outside the edit box) just close the image editor, and save your post as usual. An image that works best with featured images at least 210 wide.

    Modifying the design of the Imbalance 2 theme to have a full width header image and a horizontal navigation bar takes a little work. If you're interested in switching so that you can use custom menus, here are some past threads that explain how to do it:
