Secondary menu in bottom

    I’d like to repeat my top navigation menu in the footer. Is there a way to tell the theme to put the secondary menu at the bottom of the page instead of right below the primary menu?

    I tried putting my custom menu into the bottom sidebar with a widget, but I lose the black background that makes the menu tabs and unselected text show up. I tried adding a black background in the custom CSS box, but that didn’t work either (code below)

    #sidebar_bottom.sidebar .menu-basic-menu-container {
    background: black;
    }

    What am I missing?

    Hurm..you might want to wait until version 1.2 is released, which (hopefully) will be in a few day’s time. Version 1.1.4 currently has the styling of the main navigation menu to be applied to all other custom menus, which is of course, not intended. This has been fixed in version 1.2

    From there, you can style the custom menu to your requirements instead.

    Great. I’m really looking forward to the new version–fixes a couple of bugs/adds new features that I need. I did briefly set up a test site with the alpha version and it looks exciting. Will try out the beta when it shows up.

    Back again. I’ve upgraded to 1.2 and tried putting the basic menu in a widget in the footer. Unfortunately, it comes out styled completely differently than the top menu (just as an unstyled list).

    What I’m trying to do is just repeat the menu from the header in the footer. If possible, it would be nice to have the sub-menus open upwards instead of downwards, but that’s not essential. Is there a way to do this with CSS? I can’t determine the appropriate classes, even with Firebug.

    For the moment, I’m achieving something close to what I want by creating a custom footer.php in my child theme and copying the entire nav div to the footer. But I’m fairly sure that this is not the most elegant approach. Also, I need to adjust the extra gray spaces in the bottom. I tried creating a second version of sprite_h.png (sprite_h_bottom.png) but am unable to figure out where it goes.

    My URL is jmek.net/litquake.
