According to wordpress, the custom menu widget displays a vertical menu in the sidebar. However, in montezuma, it displays horizontally. Is this scheduled to be fixed soon? Is there a simple workaround in the meantime?

Thanks.

It's not a problem, it has to do with the CSS. The default styling is set that way. If you want it different you are responsible for editing the CSS and making the change.

To do this you should get familiar with FireBug in FireFox so you can examine the elements and test changes to see what needs to be changed. Then you can go into the themes CSS template options and make the change there. as a for instance, if you add the META widget, you will see the list items beside each other. if you examine it you will find that you need to change the css for .widget_meta >
li to a 'float: none'

I also needed to do that to the
Code:
.menu li
item in menus.css to make it work. If I were also using horizontal menus, this might cause a problem, but I don't plan on using them, so it won't be a problem for me.
