Hi Rick

This is Josef

I have a question regarding the new menus option in wp3 but it has this message

"The current theme does not natively support menus, but you can use the “Custom Menu” widget to add any menus you create here to the theme’s sidebar."

I saw a video on youtube where the guy says it is posible to fix this but he didn't say how.

I am stuck with my horrible navbar and have no idea how to change it.

would appreciate any help on this.

thanks

Josef, Thesis 1.8 will be compatible with 3.0 menu system.  It's in beta now and should be available soon.  I've tested it on a couple of sites and it doesn't appear to have any bugs so I'm guessing you'll be able to down load it shortly.

Thesis 1.8 will give you the ability to choose if you want to use the Thesis nav bar or the WordPress menu.  If you choose the WordPress menu the styles you choose in Thesis Design Options will apply to the WordPress menu.

If you want an additional menu besides the main menu you can either use a widget and place it in a sidebar or you can hook a WordPress menu to a specific location using thesis hooks.  This is what I've done for a client.  She has several "context" menus that she wants to display on different pages.  I made a conditional statement that said if it's page such and such use menu so and so and hooked it to the hook before sidebar.

I do plan on doing a full video tutorial on it when I'm done with the e-commerce videos.  In fact it'll be a full summer of new videos what with 1.8 and 3.0 out.
