Right now I'm trying to use the Spectrum theme, which I discovered is one of many that doesn't have dropdown parent/child navigation tabs. I tried to create my first Custom Menu but I'm not having any luck. So far all I have are the main tabs...and they aren't even in the correct order, despite my efforts to organize them. I thought i would try the category widget but i'm not getting on with it, either. If I activate the Page widget, it takes all of the categories and lists them (in "child" format), making the extra Category widget seem redundant. And the Cat. widget isn't working for me anyway. ;-(
On the whole, that sidebar option looks rather messy on this theme. I'd much rather have the dropdown tabs along the top (as I did successfully with a Twenty Ten site).
Are there steps I'm missing somewhere in trying to work with the aforementioned functions? Or maybe it's just WP being wonky today?
The blog I need help with is honeybunch55.wordpress.com.
