In the videos, the main black menu "Home Dashboard Content Structure Appearance" etc., have a drop-down feature. How do I enable Drupal 7 do do this?
Good question, my apologies for not getting to this sooner. The drop-down is created by the Administration Menu module. I mention this in one of the earlier videos, but probably need to give it a little more coverage. This is being used to speed up the process of navigating and keep the URLs clean and easy to follow (something that is difficult with the Overlay module). The Overlay and Toolbar modules have been disabled as well.
Thanks, and please let me know if you have any other questions.
I read your response to the last discussion thread about this subject then installed and configured the Administration Menu module; however, the drop-down menu still does not appear. The menu structure is setup correctly, they simply will not appear when you hover over a parent menu item.
Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated!
You may need to also disable the Toolbar module to get it to work. Let me know if that does the trick.
Chris... so far, no luck.
Just to clarify, I'm referring to the submenus on the website and not the administrative menu. My website can be found at http://wynonashouse.com/. If you hover over the About menu, you should see a drop-down menu similar to the one on the following website, which is the template this site was based on: http://marinelli.netsons.org/. You can point to the Taxonomy menu item on the template website to see an example of the way the drop-down menu should work.
I've changed my theme back to the Drupal 7 default theme and the drop-down menu still will not work, which leads me to believe the issue is related to a setting and not the theme being used. By-the-way, i am a brand new user in the Drupal community and designed the entire website based on what I learned from your course.
Thank you and bravo for the screencasts!
Thank you for the kind words, Lee!
I get you now, so we're dealing with a custom menu here. Drupal doesn't have drop-down menus by default, so you'll need to install a custom module to get what you need. I'd start with Nice Menus (http://drupal.org/project/nice_menus) and see if that does the trick for you. It's probably the most common, established drop-down module.
Let me know if that works,
Just to make sure I get it, although I have defined my Main Menu as well as a second level of menus, by default, Drupal will not display the second level of menus as a drop down. I'm not looking for multiple levels, just the main menu and one level of drop downs. Maybe I'm over simplifying but it just seems like a basic menu function.
I did install and configure Nice Menus; however, I now have two menus - the main menu as well as the Nice menus. I followed the online documentation but can't seem to figure out how to end up with one main menu that contains one level of drop down items. Can you point me in the right direction? Have you developed any screencasts that support this topic?
Thanks again and sorry for having to continue this thread.
