Benfleet theme gets a new menu
Along with some other additions, a new menu format has been added to the benfleet theme. It is a drop down menu specifically designed to work with a responsive theme. The menu divides each level into a series of panels, to provide a breadcrumb trial back to the main page.
Hovering the mouse over the topmost panel, reveals at each level in the menu structure those panels that must be traversed to arrive at the current page. The panels overlay one another, so only the title page for subsequent panels is visible. Clicking on any one of these previous panels will take you back up to that level. A panel is limited to a maximum of 8 pages, after that the content must be subdivided to create a new sub panel. As a general rule, the more detailed, or specific the content is, the lower that page is likely to be in the menu structure.
As well as the menu panels, a site map has been created which indexes all the pages, as an indented list, in the same way a book is indexed. This is located on top level index panel.
Behind the scenes, juggling pages on a full index, can be tricky. Within wordpress, custom (sub) menu’s can created to make the rearranging of pages more manageable.
