Wordpress 3.4.1, Atahualpa 3.7.7
Wordpress 3.0

In case Flynn has been so immersed in Themeframe development that he hasn't been watching changes over at Wordpress.org: Wordpress 3.0 is coming along nicely. I'm beta/alpha testing it on one of my sites. A big, huge, wonderful improvement: they've folded the Woo Themes Custom Nagivation into the core. Now, you'll be able to combine pages, categories and even outside URLs into your menus. http://wordpress.org/development/201...-patch-sprint/

There is a new Menus section under Appearance. I just made one with 3 pages and 2 categories, plus a link to an outside news site. Fantastic!

There is a new widget which allows you to put your new menus in sidebars. Really useful! I don't know how you'd put one in one of Atahualpa's Page or Category menu areas in the header, however.

I'm having no problems with Wordpress 3.0 and Atahualpa 3.4.6 on my test site.

Some options in the theme won't be necessary anymore with WP 3.0, so I let Flynn know.

Hey Paulae,

How stable is WP 3.0?

I have the link to the trunk build but haven't installed it yet; was thinking of just waiting until it's "official" beta release to the general public.

It seems stable to me, but I haven't really put it through its paces on my test site. So far, no glitches in the admin area, especially moving widgets around. That had been a problem with other upgrades.

Sounds pretty cool. Gonna have to check out the Woo themes navigation.

I'd been swapping out my navigation with menus I'd custom built using the plugin Menubar. It builds all the menu types you'd mentioned. And uses a simple template tag type code so you can pop them anywhere you want. But I really grabbed it cause there was a bunch of different templates you could use to display your menus. I use the Superfish drop down a lot.

It builds tag trees with the ability to exclude tags, which is super useful to me.

I just recently asked for the ability to create collapsing category structures for sidebar menus. Most of the plugins I've seen only do that for pages or won't allow for much customization.

Anywho... many thanks for the heads up!

I think I'll try it out and see what happens then.
**Edit**
I tried it out and it's not what I thought. I thought the new menu system would let you "skin" your menus too, but apparently it's just for creating the menus and you have to still skin them separately with theme/css. Oh well.

The only part of Atahualpa I've never been able to customize were the menus without breaking my site, so I'm excited to see the possibilities with WP 3.

ThemeFrame is more complicated than I anticipated so I'm not going to design with it until I can put a lot of time into it and really figure it out.
