  1. hi team!

    does anyone know how to add categories list - this

    <?php wp_list_categories('orderby=id&use_desc_for_title=0&child_of=13'); ?>

    to the navigation, without editing or inset the wp's php code to the thematic's header-extension.php

    I wanted the 'categories link' as an 'li' tag, inside and part of div class:menu and ul class: sf-menu sf-js-enabled.

    i've been search every article about this, i found that some of them re-create/re-place the thematic_access default with their own using action function.

  2. I found this, posted by Devin ( -

    function add_childtheme_category_menu($args) {
    	$categories = wp_list_categories('orderby=id&use_desc_for_title=0&child_of=13');
    	$args .= $categories . '';
    	return $args;

    this works great but <li class=categories> shown above the <div class=menu>.

    does anyone how to make it works perfectly ?

  3. i did this, and thanks again Devin for the tips and the custom function - action

    i guessed i have to use custom function

    function childtheme_menu() { ?>
         <div class="menu">
              <ul class="sf-menu">
                    <?php wp_list_pages('title_li='); ?>
                    <?php wp_list_categories('exclude=1&title_li='); ?>
    <?php }

  5. using function filter - again, from Devin

    function add_childtheme_category_menu($args) {
    	$categories = wp_list_categories('exclude=1&title_li=&echo=0');
    	$args .= $categories . '';
    	return $args;
    add_filter('wp_list_pages', 'add_childtheme_category_menu');

    more about menu navigation

    i'm still not to sure which one should i use...
    i just wanted to add the categories drop down list to the navigation menu with out editing the original thematic codes, re-create/re-place the codes using action function.
    both functions are works well. but for me, the action function is stable with complete control for showing or hiding the pages.

  6. I'm not realy understanding if you've solved your problem or not.

    Does either function action or filter accomplish you goal?
