Hi, great theme and forum. Thanks!

Atahualpa theme- 3.7.7
WP- 3.4.1
Site: www.vehiclesdefined.com

I would like the drop down page menu titles/links to be the same as the titles in the custom menu labeled "Learn About". As it stands the link titles in the drop down menu are identical to the page title. How can I keep the page title that I currently have and change the drop down menu link?

Any suggestions should consider the same for the two second level pages of "cooling systems" and "body parts"

EX:
Page- http://www.vehiclesdefined.com/home/engines/
Page Title- Engines | Learn How Engines Work. Engine Description & Operation.
Drop down link: Engines | Learn How Engines Work. Engine Description & Operation.
Custom "Learn About" menu link: Engines

The drop down link needs to match Custom "Learn About" menu link. Is this possible? Sorry for overstating the situation. Thanks ahead.

If you build your menu with the WordPress menu system you can change the menu labels to anything you want.

If I use the WP menu system, can I retain the same look, feel, and function of the Atahualpa menu?

I've done some more research on this forum and I found this page with what looks like a similar concern: http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthr...p?t=103&page=2

What I gather is I need to do something like this in the bfa_header_config.php file:

$page_menu_bar .='
<li><a href="link">Link Text</a></li>
<li><a href="link">Link Text</a></li>
<li><a href="link">Link Text</a></li>
<li><a href="link">Link Text</a></li>
<li class="rMenu-expand"><a href="link">Link with sub menu</a>
<ul class="rMenu-ver">
<li><a href="link">Sub menu item 1</a></li>
<li><a href="link">Sub menu item 2</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href="link">Link Text</a></li>
';

The issue I have is I think this may be for a different version of Atahualpa. This conclusion is backed by the fact my bfa_header_config.php file does not match the one on the page referenced above. Where should this be executed if this is correct, meaning what lines? If this is not correct, I hope that someone may point me a step closer.

Are you talking about the horizontal menu in the header or the vertical menu in the sidebar?

@Juggledad- FWIW I was referring to the Horizontal menu bar in the header. I just got finished making it what I want it to look like.

Thanks to all, even the posters in other threads.
