This new menu feature even though it is likely to change a lot before the actual release is really promising. This is a major limitation for WordPress as a content management system today. This is a very positive step. In this video I demonstrate how to use this feature:
Hi Bill, thanks for checking out the video. It looks like the menu feature will need to be coded in (somewhat):
"The current theme does not natively support menus, but you can use the “Navigation Menu” widget to add any menus you create here to the theme’s sidebar."
That was the error I received when I tried to add it to my custom themed site.
I'm not sure about the maintenance, hopefully I'll get the MU running so I can test more of that stuff. MU is tricky, I was not able to get it to work last night when I tried to get it up and running. I probably need to do some server side tweaks to get it working.
If you happen to hear somewhere else please let me know.
Thanks' for the video, just catching up on WP 3.0 and it looks pretty cool. I was just wandering if the adding links and categories option for the navigation works on other wp themes. I make use of the Atahaulpa theme which allows similar options for category and page choices but doesn't allow for external links to be placed on the navigation. Also with the merger of WP MU will this allow for multi maintenance across personal blog networks without being a WP MU user?
Just feeling in the dark here at the moment with WordPress and I guess there’s a whole lot of messing about with Apache servers and permission editing going on for WP MU to work.
Thanks in advance, Bill
