Hello all,

Building a site for my local church and there would seem to be some advantages to using drop down menus as opposed to the tab menus with the children in a sidebar - Has anyone created or modified a theme using this approach? I'm currently using a very modified pixelgreen theme now but can't figure this out on my own. Hoping someone else may have solved this?

This isn't really a silverstipe issue. Any tutorial on CSS dropdowns will do. Check out the one on A List Apart, for instance.

I just finished building a theme with dropdowns, and it works very well. I used the Son of Suckerfish dropdowns ( Then it's just a matter of implementing SilverStripe's code into the menu.
