    I am using Thematic. When I installed SEO all in one, I suddenly got an unwanted dropdown menu? What to do next..? I tried to deactive the plugin but it did not chance the appearance of the blog

    Thank you,
    Louise

  2. Hey Louise,

    don't really understand what you mean .. the current Thematic is working with a dropdown-menu .. the SEO package has no influence on this.

    Do you want to remove the dropdown-style of the Thematic menu or do you want to remove it completely.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Thank you for helping me out:)
    Would you please take a look at the blog, www.projekthæftet.dk
    You will agree that it does not look right! I am installing the blog for the author of the book Projekthæftet. He wants the menu at the right of the front page, as it is now. I was installing the seo plugin and rearranging some of the first pages of the blog, when the drop down menu appeared.. it was not there before for some reason.
    Is it possible to remove the drop down menu only - or should I pick another theme entirely, with the menu placed at the right of the front page and without drop down?

    Thank you:) Louise

  4. Louise, is that a wanted effect that you have 14 top-level pages in that menu?

  6. Louise, look into http://themeshaper.com/thematic-09-released/ .. you'll find the needed filter over there. Sorry, can't copy & paste at the moment.

    But this won't solve your problem with the mass of top-level pages.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Thank you, I'll look into it. But can I have fewer top-level pages - and still have the titles of all the sub-pages on the front page of the blog?
    sincerely, louise

  8. Mmmh .. you're using a ton of pages for this site .. maybe you should look into a a different solution.

    There're a couple of plugins allowing to setup page lists in your widgetized areas. I would suggest to keep only 3 or 4 pages in your menu. The rest would be displayed in the sidebar.

    Let me check for a couple of plugins that might be helpful for you.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Thank you very much - I chose a few top-level pages only, and it sure looks much better already

    I too am trying to remove the drop-down menus from a child theme of Thematic.

    The solution posted in the link: http://themeshaper.com/thematic-09-released/ seems fine, but it doesn't say WHERE to insert that code. In which file?? functions.php? Doesn't seem to work there, either in the chile theme functions file, OR the Thematic one.

    I'm obviously missing something.

    Which file does that code get inserted into? And WHERE in the file?

    Thanks

    It goes in your (child theme's) functions.php
    You create your own if you don't already have one.

    here is a good series of post to help you understand how to work with your theme

    thanks amygail for the clarification.

    Inserted that code in functions.php for the child theme. But the drop-downs are still alive.

    functions.php file looks like this:

    --

    <?php
    
    // Filter away the default scripts loaded with Thematic
    function kania_head_scripts() {
        // Abscence makes the heart grow fonder
    }
    add_filter('thematic_head_scripts','kania_head_scripts');
    
    ?>

    -

    Obviously the code needs something else?
