    The ThemeShaper team,

    I have purchased both the Acmas and Thematic Power theme.
    I wish to have add the drop-down category functionality of the Power theme to Acmas with the styling of Acmas.
    With a bit of reworking all seems fine, however I have been unable to get sub-categories to work as drop-down in Acmas.

    Please provide guidance with an elegant and consistent solution.

    Hey Chris,

    to “re-open” this topic: Is there a convenient way to add a drop-down menu to Acamas as Thematic default has (incl. superfish)?
    Might be me, but I just can't figure out how to do that in Acamas (I already have a custom functions.php included, though).

    Thanks so much for an answer!

  4. Here you go:

    // Add a drop down category menu
    function childtheme_category_menu() { ?>
    <div id="category-menu" class="menu">
    <ul id="category-nav" class="sf-menu">
    <?php wp_list_categories('title_li='); ?>

    <?php }

    Add this inside the functions.php file of the child theme. Make sure you open and close the <?php ?> tags correctly!

    Hey Christian,

    thanks for your fast and kind answer!
    I should have clarified more what exactly I mean: to have a drop down list with pages that shows sub-pages and has superfish, just like the default Thematic without Acamas.
    So far, I customized the wp_menu_args so it has a greater depth and a home button. In the source code I can already see the sub-pages. Also, I already included the necessary JS-files.
    As of now, I'm only stuck with the CSS I'll need. Currently, I'm trying to adept the basic Thematic .sf-menu styles.

  6. Yeah... next time I might actually read what people are posting :) I just thought you wanted a CATEGORY dropdown for Acamas. Can you send me a link where you're working? I'm assuming it's not

    Sure thing, it's
    Currently, I have removed the menu CSS, though, because I couldn't get it right.

    (In case you don't speak German, the attribution is not gone, I have a whole page dedicated to that -

    Hm, so far I gave up on it (too many other building lots – will have a look at it later again, though), but this might be a feature suggestion. I can imagine some people kind of expected this functionality when they see or use Thematic first - like me ;)

    Any luck with this at all? I noticed the last reply was 3 months ago...

    Tried for two hours, can't figure it out working properly. :/ Maybe (hopefully!) Chris gets back to it.
