general WP/Atahualpa questions

I need to create a three column layout with vertical navigation in the left sidebar (all pages), different right sidebars for different pages, and a customized layout with easily editable content areas in the main content area for the front page.

Typically I would edit the index.php file for the home page, and create different page templates and/or use custom fields for the inner pages. But the Atahualpa settings seem to apply site-wide.

In Atahualpa, it looks like I can handle the front page custom layout in the Style & Edit Center Column options box -- but will this carry over into all pages?

Also, I don't have a sense of how to get the vertical navigation in the left column, or how to have different right column setups for different pages.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you,
Laura S.

Ok, I figured out how to get the vertical navigation in the left sidebar (I used Custom Menus widget), but the child pages don't appear when I click on one of the parent pages. Can you help me figure out how to display the child pages within a section when I am on any of the pages in the section?

Also I see that customizing the layout in the "Style & Edit Center Column" only affects the front page, but I don't really understand why. Can you explain?

Thanks,
Laura

Thanks,

I figured out how to get stuff to show up on the home page vs. other pages. Still don't know how to get child pages to appear below the parent pages in the left sidebar nav.

Am I posting this question in the wrong sub-forum? Why hasn't anyone replied? Am I expecting too much out of this theme?

Thanks,
Laura S.

What version of Atahualpa and WP?
What is the url?
how are you building your menus? using the automatic menu creation or using WP 3.0's new menu structure?

I'm using WP3.0.1 and Atahualpa 3.4.9.

URL is http://apicne.org/wordpress

Right now the site is using a "custom menu" I created with the new WP 3.0 menu functionality.

On the site, you can see that all of the page nav items are listed in the left column. This is not what I want. I want my left nav menu to look like this:

=====
Home
About Us
Membership
Conferences
Education
Resources
=====

and when I click on About Us (for example), the subnav menu gets displayed, and the menu should look like this:

=====
Home
About Us
Mission Statement
History
Board of Directors
Contact Us
Membership
Conferences
Education
Resources
=====

(Note that this is NOT a javascript fly-out menu. It's just a nested list.)
(Ideally the submenu would show/hide the links to child pages without reloading the page.)

This seems like it should be fairly straightforward (or maybe not?), but I don't seem to be able to find anyone who can help me do it ... or even point to the correct resources. I keep getting sent to the dropdown-menu-widget plugin, but that only deals with flyout menus.

If you could help me, I would be extremely grateful.

Thanks,
Laura

Sorry, some of my formatting got lost. The second list (with the submenu) should look more like:

=====
Home
About Us
- Mission Statement
- History
- Board of Directors
- Contact Us
Membership
Conferences
Education
Resources
=====

i.e., the sub-menu should be indented or different in some way.

Thanks,
Laura
