Hello,

I'm a newbie and trying out silverstripe to see if I should move a very large joomla site I help manage over to a new CMS.

anyhow,

how do I build a drop down menu?

I thought by simply creating a child item under the top item it would work.

I'm using the pixelgreen theme.

I set up the drop down under about us.

see the attachment for what I did.

I'm using SS 2.4.0

Simply creating a child page won't work unless the template author has setup a dropdown menu (which I don't believe that theme has) to make a dropdown menu you would have to customize the template (menu html would be under themes/pixelgreen/templates/Page.ss).

I like using the cssplay menus - http://www.cssplay.co.uk/menus/. Good resource of html / css based menus.
