Using Graphene drop-down menu in webpage

    Hi

    Slightly off topic possibly, but hoping someone can help.

    I’m using the Graphene theme for a WordPress site, which also has some associated PHP pages that sit outside WP but are called from it.

    I’ve recreated the Graphene look for these pages using CSS, but I can’t seem to recreate the drop down menu system.

    Can someone tell me how I can recreate the Graphene drop-down menu system in a standard PHP page?

    I’m not talking about the colour formatting, I’ll do that with CSS, I mean the way the menu actually drops down?

    Thanks

    Hank

    That IS done with CSS.

    First you use CSS to initially hide the sub-menu.

    Then CSS is also used to show the sub-menu when the parent menu is hovered.

    Formatting the menu is actually the major headache I faced when I created my very first theme.

    Graphene uses the “Son of Suckerfish” method for handling the dropdown.

    You can study how its done by reviewing graphene’s style.css

    Really!?

    I would never have guessed – I was expecting to have to use Java or JQuery or something.

    Great, thanks for the steer – I’ll have a look at Son of Suckerfish 🙂

    If you wanted to. Some themes use JS to show some fancy dropdown effects.

    Java? Didn’t you mean JavaScript? 😛

    Nah, it’s pure CSS.
