I have several posts on easy hiking in different locations and divided these posts in categories according to locations.

1) I would like to create another set of tabs either ABOVE or BELOW the banner image and would like for these tabs to go to the categories indicated i.e. Easy Hikes Paris, Easy Hikes Germany, etc

2) Would I need to first create the separate pages for each category as per juggledad's custom query template? (If so, HELP! I've tried but I'm stuck and can't get it working.)

3) If the category tabs go BELOW banner image, how do I create another set of tabs to go ABOVE the banner image?

What do I need to do? Can it be done?

my site url: http://easy-hiker.eu

Many thanks in advance for any advice

You can move the category menu above the image by changing the order of things in the header configuration the order left->right = the order top->bottom

You could also code your own HTML for a menu (look at the source of a page for an example) and add that HTML into the header configuration to build your own menu.

Be aware if you do that, you won't be able to highlight the current page since your code will be static and will not get the 'current' page class automatically assigned to it.

Thanks.

Basically, I want to keep the tabs I now have at the bottom of the header image and I want another set of tabs (much like what I have now but ABOVE the frame of the image not on the image itself for the location categories.)

On another note: Have you tweaked your custom query template recently? I can't get it to work on my Atahualpa version 3.4.9. I keep getting an error.

it looks like you are only using the page menu right now so if you want to use the category menu, just add %cats in ato->Style & edit HEADER AREA->Configure Header Area

so you would have %cats %image %pages or you could code a menu yourself like this

HTML Code:
<div id="menu1a">
<ul id="rmenu2a" class="clearfix rMenu-hor rMenu">
	<li class="page_item"><a href="http://easy-hiker.eu/" title="easy hiker">Adventure for Beginners</a></li>
	<li class="page_item page-item-1819"><a href="http://easy-hiker.eu/what-is-easy-hiking/" >What is Easy Hiking?</a></li>
	<li class="page_item page-item-1817"><a href="http://easy-hiker.eu/first-steps/" >First Steps To Easy Hiking</a></li>
	<li class="page_item page-item-1821"><a href="http://easy-hiker.eu/easy-hiking-equipment/" >Easy Hiking Equipment</a></li>
	<li class="page_item page-item-1823"><a href="http://easy-hiker.eu/hiking-in-germany-6-reasons-why/" >Hiking in Germany – 6 Reasons Why</a></li>
	<li class="page_item page-item-2536"><a href="http://easy-hiker.eu/hiking-companions-and-fellow-travellers/" >Blogroll</a></li>
	<li class="page_item page-item-238"><a href="http://easy-hiker.eu/about-2/" >About</a></li>
</ul></div>

There was a problem with the donation system a short while ago but it should be all set now. Did you have problems recently?
