Hi Marion

Thank you for the training.
I was able to create the drop down menu as you explained.
If I scroll down my blog roll and hover the mouse over the menu the drop down menu is behind the text showing in my blogroll.

Do you know how to bring the drop down menu items to the foreground?

For more background on my question. I am using the Ameno theme.
I used the code below in the Theme.header to fix the menu to the top of the screen.
<div id="banner-nav" style="position:fixed">

Marion, that was so helpful. I am going to now re-organize my website. I was really floundering. I created a side menu of categories but Kyle suggested that I use a drop-down menu. I looked a couple of other videos that confused me more, so I am so glad I was sent this training. :)

Excellent video training, Marion, thanks! I am in the process of remodeling some menus on one of my sites from the ground up. I decided that the content could be better organized to be more user friendly...so, naturally, I began with you!

I do have a question for you. What I would really like to do is have post and/or page menus on my sidebar that are different on each page. That way, when accessing a sub menu from the top of the page drop down menu, only the relevant pages and post will appear for that category in the sidebar menu for that specific page.

Does that make sense? I can see there are lots of sidebar plug-ins, but I thought I would ask you if there is one you have had good success with that would do this.

Thanks! :)

It worked perfectly! I can't believe I've been struggling with this since last week.....but, it's my own fault for having waited so long to ask for help.

I didn't quite understand the URL and tag thing you went over, so I'll have to watch that part again. But my site is definitely coming along!

Oh, but here's a question: What's the difference between a category and a post.
Reply

A post is an individual article, a category is a group of posts on a similar subject https://codex.wordpress.org/Manage_Categories_SubPanel

You could have a category called "Reviews" and all your posts that review products can go into the Reviews category.

My goodness.....so much to know, but it is quite exciting learning everything, even if it does slow me down a bit.

I really do appreciate your help Marion.
