I’m not sure what these are called, but they weren’t on from the moment I installed the theme and I see no apparent way of turning them on:
It seems like everyone else has figured it out when I look at others using this theme. =December 9, 2010 at 7:52 am #38216December 9, 2010 at 8:21 am #38217
I was just checking to see if my question has been answered.. but I can help with yours :)
Here is the information in the documentation that came with the template.. you basically need to make your menus
B 2) Setting up the Menus of your site – top
The theme has space for two different menus that can be created with the new WordPress3 Menu Manager. You can find the menu manager at appearance-> Menu
To set up the menus create 2 new menus and enter the Name “First” at Menu Name. This Menu will populate the small top menu. Save that and create another Menu that is called “Second”, this one will controll the bigger menu below.
Now before you add any menu items take a look at the top right of your browser window: you will find The “Howdy admin and Logout link” Directly below you can see the “screen options” tab. Click that tab and a panel with additional options will open. Check the checkbox in “Show advanced menu properties” that says “Description”
Now set up your menus. If you add Menu Items to the “First” Menu you dont need to fill in the description. It wont get displayed. However the Second menus top level items display the description directly bellow the Menu Item title in your front end.
Attention: you might need to delete some pre filled descriptions if you use pages in the second menu, since wordpress adds a content excerpt automatically to those items. Just remove that and enter a very short description of 2-7 words
Note: If you purchased this item before wordpress 3 was released and update it you will see that my very own “old” Menu Manager is gone now in favor of the new wordpress Menu Manager and you need to re-enter your menus here. Sorry for that ;)December 9, 2010 at 9:51 am #38218
I definitely wasn’t aware of that part, but it doesn’t seem to really do anything. I followed that, but the menus still don’t show up.
Also… it is confusing. It says: “Your theme supports 1 menu. Select which menu you would like to use.” and I have to choose between “First” or “Second.”
No matter what I do, nothing ever shows up though (both or either)December 9, 2010 at 10:08 am #38219
I did find that strange too but it didn’t seem to matter what I chose there.
Just make sure you create the ‘first’ and ‘second’ menus, and that you have added at least one menu item to each menu eg. a custom link.. oh.. and save the menu.
If that doesn’t work I am sure Dude will be along to help soon :)

The stupid thing didn’t save my menus for the second one… and then the First links were hiding behind my logo that I need to trim, lol.
