I need some help desparately.
I have added a page which has a parent page BUT I find that the sub page does not appear as sub menu item of the parent page in the category menu bar in atahualpa theme version 3.7.3 and wordpress 3.3.1
For example I have a parent page -Boot-camp-series which is a menu item in the category menu bar. The sub page Boot-camp-1 is a page whose parent is boot-camp-series. Eventhough I have set the page attribute for boot-camp-1 as boot-camp-series it does not appear on the category menu bar.

What is the reason for this. Do I need to change any attributes in theme options ?

I can provide the screen shot if needed.

Yes, I'm using the Atahualpa menus. Please help as I'm unable to load any menu items to category and main menu.
Hampering my progress of the website development. Unable to figure out why this is happening ?

Thanks for helping jugglehead.

TIA.

do you have sub pages? ie when you create a page, you can make it a child page of another page. Have you dont that?

Yes, I have already said that in my First post (the original post) that I have a child page (sub page) boot-camp-1 under boot-camp-series . Even though I have put the parent and child relationship, it does not display the page.
What could be the problem I am unable to diagnose ?

when using the Atahualpa automaticly generated menus, the %cat menu will show a category, not a page. If a category has a sub category AND there is a post with the sub category, then the category menu will show the parent category and then there will be a sub menu item for the child category.

If you have a category with NO posts associated with it, the cateory will not show in the menu.

Let me elaborate if I understand this clearly or not -
So you say that I cannot have "pages" in a category menu bar. I can only have posts . Right ?

In the pages menu bar I can only have individual pages and no sub -pages. Is it right ?
If yes, then How do I setup sub-pages or in other words how do I have pages hierachy ?

Looking at my two bars (one pages menu bar and the second category menu bar) Should I have to move all pages in the category menu bar and convert them into posts ?

Also would like to know how do I add(or where do I define) sub category to a category ?

TIA.

Just use the WordPress menu builder. That let's you add pages or posts to either menu with dropdowns if desired.

If you use the Atahualpa menu, the only thing that eill shoe in the category menu are teh categories that have posts. if a category doesn't have a post, that caterory will not show up till that category is assigned to a post.

If you use teh Wordpress custome menu, you can build the menu any way you want, have a page a sub-page of a category if you want.

No, you can have lots of sub pages 7 levels deep. You just need to assign teh page a parent when you build it. (wordpress page editor)

once again, if you use the atahualpa menus, the %pages will only list pages and the %cats will only list categories. If you want to do something different, use the WordPress custom menus.
